I am going to have to sand down a couple of shingles where I smeared green. It is really hard to get the brush in all of the nooks and crannies, without smearing it.
Anyway, that part s done.
Then I put them on this mat of leather with the rough side up. The paper stays in place best on this side. I use a ball stylus, pressing down in the center of each tiny flower to cup it.
I do the same with the leaves, with a larger ball stylus, in a round and round motion.
The flowers on this are seed ;pods from one of the plants in the back yard. I will have to see if I I can find the name for it.
I simply snipped them off after they were dry and painted them...Perfect daisies.
Health report. I am now in the sneezy, runny nose stage. I am going to have to stop making plants. there are petals and leaves all over the bedroom. You know.....Cup a leaf. Sneeze. Pick up leaf. Cup another leaf. Sneeze. Pick up two leaves....They are multiplying. Soon I will be doing way more picking up than cupping.
Back to the tissue box. See you tomorrow.
