AE Theme Reveal – Flowers

It’s been a quick month this month, I’ve had so much to do that I didn’t even have a minute to think about the Art Elements challenge until a few days ago. I’ve just got something little for today’s reveal, but I’m glad I managed to get myself together to take part in the theme that Marsha set for us at the beginning of July… flowers!

If you’ve been following my @houseofwonders instagram page, you will have seen that I’m loving making miniatures, dioramas and mini accessories so I thought while I hadn’t left myself much time, I’d make some tiny flowers. I’ve already done miniature flowers in pots and I wanted something a bit different so I thought it would be the perfect chance to have a go at an idea that has been brewing for a while… magical flowers!

They’re inspired by Alice in Wonderland… I love all versions of the film, especially the Tim Burton version!

They’re made from polymer clay, wire, and paper, painted and planted in tiny terracotta pots. I think they’d look fabulous in any miniature garden!


I’m pleased with how they turned out!

Thanks to Marsha for a great theme, even though I was very last minute, I’ve enjoyed making these tiny flowers and have ideas for lots more!

  1. I love your mini garden. Very cute and perfect for the hot days in August when real flowers struggle to look pretty. Well done!

  2. Thanks for participating this month Caroline! I love the videos you are posting and how even when you get a short amount of time to work on a project, you always have such great finished pieces. I just love your work! These are freaking adorable and from Alice’s Wonderland for sure…

  3. Your miniature magical flowers are completely enchanting. I don’t know how you fit so much detail into such small things. Maybe you are magic too?

  4. The best things come in small sizes 😀 these are adorable and would be fabulous in any dolls house or miniature display.

  5. Caroline, last minute or not, these cute, naive playful flowers made me smile the minute I saw them! I want to hold each in my hands and touch their little faces :). Alysen

  6. These make me smile so big with their beautiful little faces. I’m so happy you were able to eke in a little time to spread some flower joy!
