My wonderful boy came home on Saturday with lovely bright red and orange Gerberas ‘just because’ – Yay! However, we only have one vase in our apartment so I had to say goodbye to my branches and their bright coloured flowers I had made for them…. Luckily I had some extra time up my sleeve, so I re-purposed them into this cute little flower chain for above one of our windows.
The flowers are gouache painted on cut out bits from some off cuts I had – 300gsm Saunders watercolour of course. Its just strung up with some white cotton twine we had lying around and its fixed with some little cutouts of cupcakes, strawberries and lollies – like the ones featured in these paintings : https://vincenteknight.wordpress.com/2010/03/25/for-mollys-room/
