I've mentioned before how much I love pinecones, and now christmas is nudging ever closer, I've made some christmas-edition cones.
I like to keep things very simple and am not a fan of too much fake-anything, so I guess this is my take on the snowy look! Using a very fine brush I've painted the insides of the cones with white liquid acrylic ink. It's fiddly and time-consuming, but I like the subtle effect. I might string some together and make a garland.
Knowing I would receive a cheque from my Father for christmas, I've treated myself to a few things in the last couple of weeks. I love Stephanie's pinecones, and now I have one of my own.
Can you see the detail, and imagine the time and effort that goes into creating one of these beauties? It's a work of art.
It's hanging well out of a certain boy's reach. I know it's just the sort of thing he'd love to chew.
