The San Franciscan's Tree.JPG



I switched from working on the basement to working on tree foliage today. I recently raided my local Spotlight (for US readers, think cheap homewares/fabric/craft store combined). I found some plastic foliage sprays that I thought might be kind of in scale for leaves for the San Franciscan tree. I deconstructed the sprays into "branches" of leaves. They were overly forest green so I sprayed them with some more subtle shades before testing them out on the tree. More work needed by I think they might be satisfactory in the end.

The tenant is trying to catch/tease Skittle the Squirrel.... but he's to speedy for that caper. :D

The scale looks fine to me, it looks like a real tree.....   He's thinking [ I'm waiting to move in and she's......planting trees]

This is BEAUTIFUL. Something I'd expect to see at a GoodSamShow!!! Gorgeous. At first glance, I thought it was one of the best birch trees I'd ever seen. Is it a birch? No matter - it is gorgeous! Well done!!!!

Love the tree, seems like most landscaping for dollhouses don’t include trees, Love this!

No they don't. There is a maker, I can't think of the name right now, but they are super expensive! :eek:

Thanks, I think the leaves are about right. Good enough anyway. :D Oh, yes, my poor long suffering tenant.:giggle:

Haha.. I'm not sure I'm up to painting that bark.. it looks a bit tricky.. Maybe it's a river birch... their trunks are a bit browner. :D

Add me to the list, love the tree!  I have not been too pleased with what I’ve seen in stores so far. 

Store trees are awful. If you want to see great trees. Search Otterine's albums. She does great things with candytuft as foliage and has even punched out and applied leaves individually.:eek:
