March Miniatures – 25 one a day fern pictures

A few days into March, I decided to make a tiny fern picture every day for the rest of the month.

Suggestions were taken through instagram and I stuck to schedule going on to list all on my store at the end of the month. High quality giclee prints of this series, are available on my etsy store here at just £6 each.

 

Here is the proof!

 

1. A butterfly!

I have a sort of plan! From now until the end of the month I’m going to make a miniature Fern picture everyday. I have plans for a few of them but am very open to suggestions. The originals will all be listed on my esty store for just £20 each on the 1st of April. #fern #herbarium #pressedflowers #etsy #etsyseller #miniature #butterfly #insect #art #illustration #daily #leaves #nature

    I’m not surprised at all that you sold most of these, they are lovely! At first glance I thought they were watercolours but then realised they are collages – it’s amazing there’s so much detail and on such a tiny scale!
