still working on the contest build
Spring Fling sneak peek

more plants for the Spring Fling contest house

I've almost finished making the plants for the Spring Fling.  I've got three more houseplants planned, and then will only have to make more if there are holes to fill in the garden.  I vacilate between thinking I made more than enough or not enough...until I start planting them I won't know for sure.

The hostas, Christmas cactus, sedum, yellow marigolds and red impatiens were made from kits by sdk miniatures.  The sedum, hostas and Christmas cactus came with white leaves I got to paint the color of my choosing. 

The daylily greenery, black-eyed-susans and orange flowers I made from scratch.  The orange flowers look kind of like marigolds and kind of like zinnias...I call them mariginnias.  I used leftover leaves from the petunias and impatiens kits for the mariginnias.

I have one more sheet of sedum leaves left, but the sedums were an enormous pain in the butt to make...I want burgundy leaved ones, like I have in my real-life garden, but haven't decided if I want them bad enough to go through the assembly process.
