Dollhouse Miniature White and Blue Rose Wreath

I spent several days working on this dollhouse miniature white and blue rose wreath.

It's been a while since I revisited making wreaths. After I made this particular one, it reminds me that if it was placed on top of a cake, it resembles a Korean 3D flower buttercream cake which is a hot favorite now. ^^
If you know what it looks like, simply go google and search for that. You'll see beautiful images of hand piped buttercream cakes in flower themes.

This is my first blue and white rose wreath :) I am loving the look.

I wanted to continue with the white and blue theme, so the next time I could think of was making a wreath!

I love how it complements with the rest of the decoration accessories.

Although making a flower wreath is time consuming, at one point, I wasn't sure if I would see the end result of this. Progress seems really slow. Every stalk of rose, every petal seems to take forever. But once I think I had enough roses to assemble it into a wreath, everything fell into place quickly.

So much so that, yes I would want to make another one for keepsake^^

But actually I have another idea that I wanted to try, so perhaps I'll move onto a new project first. I am feeling adventurous and would like to challenge myself a bit :)

Dollhouse Miniature Blue Mason Jar with a Rose

I'm currently obsessed with these self made dollhouse miniature blue mason jars ^^
I like mine just slightly blue tinted, not too dark.

I took a little break from making the wreath (which is still a far way to go), and working on this instead.

There are days where flower making seems to be progressing on a much slower pace. So when that happens, I move to another project.

Exciting news! I'm going to work on writing my next PDF tutorial once some supplies are in. I'm excited! I'll be writing about making these round victorian gift boxes. If you want to learn how to make some yourself, please stay tuned. I appreciate your support! :)

Have a wonderful Thursday all!

New white and blue bouquet

I made another white and blue bouquet, using some new paints that I've bought! I'm happy with the results. I've also bought some other colors and can't wait to try them out slowly over time.

The dark blue berries add some depth into this bouquet :) I'm truly loving the look.

I've also made some light blue smaller flowers to bring more "blue" to the bouquet.

While jogging, a thought came into my mind. I need to try making a wreath next! White and blue flower wreath! So yes, that will be my goal.

If this set is still around by the time I complete the wreath, I'll be able to have a photo opportunity with them all. ^^

I suspect that the wreath is going to take a while, which is always the case with flowers. But the end goal is not that important for me. I am looking forward to enjoy the process, from scratch to deliberating colors and composition. This is what makes me excited.
