Succulent Gardens II

Welcome to the February RemARKably Creative Blog Tour. This month's theme is succulents.

I found this little driftwood flower holder at M's, stuck some of that green foam in (is there a technical term for that stuff?), and put some moss on top. And finally, I added flowers, in two sizes.

First, the artistic rendering:

If you don't have the app "Waterlogue", you need it! It is so fun!
I made three colors of flowers: Rich Razzleberry, Wild Wasabi and Smoky Slate. I added a lot of flower layers to give the succulents more dimension. I used a sponge dauber to add color to each of the leaves. The Rich Razzleberry flower was sponges with Chocolate Chip. The other two were sponged with Sahara Sand and Rich Razzleberry.
I especially loved the comments I've gotten from my kids - like  "What are you going to do with that?"  "Why?" and the cat thinks the moss is quite edible.

Succulent Gardens I

New addiction - making succulent flowers.  I've always loved the little "hens and chicks" in my garden. I found this little two-container pot with some silk flowers in it and substituted two little hens.

Below I'm using an app called Waterlogue to make an artistic rendering of the picture (WOW)
and the real version. Really this isn't hard, just add lots of layers and sponge the tips with color. For the wasabi flowers, I sponged two colors.

Here's the ingredients:
