Mini cards, quilling, spring

As a guest designer on the "StudioLeto" blog - Первоцветы - I was requested to make a card with spring flowers (tulips, snowdrops, daffodils etc) and a sentiment "Happy 8th of March" (International women's day)
Being all drowned in miniature I couldn't easily get back to cards, but I attempted. Clean and simple miniature cards - 5 cm by 5 cm and 5 cm by 7 cm (2" square and 2"x2,5") with quilled flowers. With the help of my elder daughter.
Я приглашенный дизайнер в блоге "StudioLeto" - задание Первоцветы - открытка с весенними цветами (тюльпаны, подснежники, нарциссы и пр) и надпись "С 8 марта". Я вся в миниатюре, потому задание немного смутило, но в итоге совместила. Открытки миниатюрные - 5 см на 5 см зеленая и 5 см на 7см - красная. С помощью моей старшей дочери.

Micro miniature in a glass pendant - Sakura

Some people say that making micro miniatures in a walnut or in a box is useless and noone ever needs that. Ok, anyone can offend an artist. My answer to them: take your micro miniature with you. So I placed it in a glass sphere. Chain it and wear.
I've seen many glass ball pendants, filled with dandelion seeds, dried flowers, microbeads or other stuff, that's so easy, so boring. Just open, pour, seal and that's it. Maaaagic... So I used the idea for my own magic. Like a ship in a bottle ;)
