And a few wires, masking tape and paint make a tree. Then you add some air dried clay, and after it dries then you sprinkle on coarse grass. Yep the top bit is still bare! Well it is autumn. No, I've actually been trying to work out how best to put the foliage on to the tree, there are some ideas on line, one uses some fine mesh to act as a base. I have some as a piece was in the foliage kit, that is probably the way I'll go. But it was important to work on the base first, now I just have to scrape back the ready grass, and secure the tree with No Nails, once the leaves are on.
Need to build up the shrubbery, and blend in the porch area, sticks out like a sore thumb at the moment. I could take the gravel and spread some over it, or... shrubbery. The fence will be secured, and the outside toilet will be fixed into place.
Then I can move onto Thimble Cottage, think I will go to town a bit on its landscaping. Just fancy trying a few ideas. If it works, it works, if not... then it will be a good thing that I got the large roll of ready grass, and still have some spare wood! I found some chicken wire, amazing what stuff you have lurking in cupboards and sheds. I can't even remember what I wanted the chicken wire for.
Need to decide what the next project will be, half toying with the Shepherd's hut, well it will be different, could even get some tiny sheep. Need to save up for Raven's Perch, but I think I also need to get some more landscaping experience under my belt.
