Hi friends! I hope you’re all doing well! It’s hard to believe it’s August already. I’ve been wanting to start working on a miniature vegetable garden for a long time now, so I took some of my quaran-time to work on the first piece – a tomato plant!
I used Mary Kinloch’s laser cut tomato leaves colored with alcohol ink markers, and everything else I made myself (except the planter). The tomatoes, all in various stages of ripening, were sculpted from polymer clay, and I even used white flocking to approximate the fuzzy appearance tomato plants have!
I had a lot of fun making this, and I hope you enjoy! If you’re looking to make your own, I highly recommend Mary’s laser sheets!
This is Gertie and her vegetable garden! This is my biggest and most detailed Fuzzy project to date. I decided to try my hand at creating little scenes for my mice, and what better base for a “Gourmet Fuzzy” than a kitchen cutting board? Gertie has her own little gardening apron and a straw hat resting on her back.
Gertie’s little patch of veggies includes hand-sculpted polymer clay carrots, cauliflower and cabbage I made myself, along with some essential gardening tools, like a trowel, wheelbarrow and watering can (dollhouse miniatures I purchased). I also designed my own little seed packets. Plus, there’s a little bunny waiting to nibble on the veggies!
Gertie’s garden will be available on Etsy soon!
