Een bloemenfeetje met een doosje aquarelverf / A flower fairy with a box of watercolor paint

Voorkant en achterkant van dezelfde blaadjes 
Front view and back view of the same petals

Tijdens mijn werk in de tuin kwam ik een prachtige hortensia bloem tegen: aan één bloemhoofd zaten verschillende kleuren bloemblaadjes. Ik besloot ze af te knippen en te fotograferen om ze aan jullie te laten zien. Het leek net of er een bloemenfeetje met haar doosje aquarelverf in mijn tuin had rondgelopen. Moeder Natuur geeft ons veel moois, je hoeft alleen maar goed om je heen te kijken om  alle moois te zien, is het niet :D?!

During my work in the garden I saw a beautiful flower of my hydrangea: there were different colors of petals at ONE flower head. I decided to cut them off and to photograph them in order to show you them. It seemed that there had been walking around a flower fairy with her tiny box of watercolors in my garden. Mother Nature gives us so much beauty, you just have to look around you to see all the beauty there is, isn’t it :D?!


Eenmaal terug, zittend aan mijn werktafel, besloot ik dus miniatuur hortensia’s te gaan maken. Eerst maar eens die met blauwe bloemen, want dat is mijn favoriete kleur J!

So after I was back, sitting at my work table, I decided to make miniature hydrangeas. At first I tried to make blue ones, because that’s my favorite color J!


Hier heb ik ze in een koperkleurige vingerhoed gezet, die ik onlangs in de kringloopwinkel heb gevonden. Ik vond de combinatie van deze kleuren mooi en warm.

I’ve put them in this copper colored thimble, which I’ve recently found in the thrift store. I love the combination of these colors, it looks nice and warm.

Deze prachtige porseleinen vaas heb ik eens gekocht op de DHN beurs in Apeldoorn, hij is beschilderd door Dieneke Boektje (http://www.hetporseleinenboek.nl/ ). 
Zij is ook weer op de DHN miniaturenbeurs in Ulft.

I’ve once bought this beautiful porcelain vase at the DHN miniature fair at Apeldoorn, it’s hand painted by Dieneke Boektje (http://www.hetporseleinenboek.nl/ ). 
She is also at the DHN miniature fair in Ulft.



Aangezien het erg tijdrovend werk is om die piepkleine bloemblaadjes te maken heb ik maar vijf blauwe bloemen gemaakt. Er is één roze hortensia bijna klaar, die heb ik maar even naast de blauwe in mijn zelfgemaakte bloemenmand gelegd.
Nou, ik ga gauw weer verder, er is nog veel te doen en de tijd dringt ;O!

Making all those tiny petals is a very time-consuming job, that's why I have made just five blue hydrangea flowers. There is one pink hydrangea almost ready, I’ve put it next to the blue one in my self made flower basket.
Well, I’m going back to work, still lots to do and time flies ;O!

Een warm welkom aan mijn nieuwe volgers en iedereen bedankt voor de fijne reactie over Nina. 
En ja, Jennifer: ik denk erover haar mee te nemen naar de DHN miniaturenbeurs in Ulft.
Allemaal een fijne week gewenst :D!

A warm welcome to my new followers and thank you all for your nice comments about Nina. 
And yes, Jennifer: I think I’ll take her with me to the miniature fair in Ulft.
I wish you all a nice week :D!

Hoi Ilona, ik zal ook mijn best doen om te proberen in het Nederlands te schrijven. De bloemen zijn geweldig, zowel de echte als de miniaturen. They are beautiful! I could not figure out yet how to use Google Friends, but it will sure come soon!

Pepper Mitcheson zei

The blue ones are my favourite too. I really wish I could visit the fair to see them in person. Your work is stunning, as always =0)

Oh my goodness, so tiny yet how real they look. You have incredible patience making these beautiful flowers! Wet and windy weather here at the moment, perfect weather for a crackeling fire and indoor projects. Blessings, Pam in Norway xx

You're right Ilona, fairies watercolourists there are really. I have seen the leaves fairies' job on trees, are really know how to do it. Are you sure, that these beautiful hydrangeas, their tiny buds and soft petals in wonderful nuances of blue - have you done without their help??

thea zei

Heel mooi Ilona.
Ja, de natuur is prachtig als je het maar wilt zien.

Ik begrijp de reden dat je op je foto's een watermerk hebt gezet, maar soms is die net over het mooiste stukje van de foto. En dat vind ik jammer.
Hoop dat ik dit gewoon mag zeggen??

Groetjes Thea

Привет Илона!
Гортензии являются удивительными растениями. Природа их любит. Она подарила великолепную цветовую гамму. Ваши цветы также прекрасны. Я один раз делала гортензии. Это очень трудоемкая работа! Вы, как всегда, создали прекрасные цветы!
Обнимаю

Hallo Ilona,

Fabiola zei

Your hydrangeas are amazing. I like the colors.

BiWuBär zei

The flower fairy in your garden is a brilliant watercolour artist - you know ours is more the type for deep blue in just one sweep... *LOL* I'm glad this special RL-hydrangea made you start with Ilona-mini-versions. They're incredibly real (as everything made by you) and I must emphasize that it's not only the perfect blossom but also the very delicate colouring of the green leaves that adds to a breathtaking realism. Wonderful work - as always!

Hugs
Birgit

Daydreamer zei

Dear Ilona, you never cease to Amaze me! Your hydrangea is so perfect, I had to look twice to see what scale it was!!! I know just how slow this is, because I still only have five of my lilac blossoms done! LOL! I know you will finish your hydrangeas before I get my lilacs done.... too many stories need to be finished too! Never enough time for all of it! As always, your work is very inspiring to me!!!

les mains calmes zei

Joli travail! Beau résultat! Bonne continuation!
Bisous, Dominique

Doug S zei

Hello Illona...Hydrangeas are one of my favorite plants...I have about 600 square feet of garden behind my house (tiny garden!), but I have 4 hydrangeas in that tiny space...I love them! So your latest couldn't help but be a hit with me.

That thimble is way cool! It works so well as a hydrangea pot...and you are right that the colors are incredible together. Always beautiful, your work!

Doug

Plushpussycat zei

Exquisite work, Ilona! Both the large and tiny ones have so much depth to them. Your basket is beautiful too! xo Jennifer

Drora's minimundo zei

It's always a pleasure to see your flowers. I love them in every pot you chose
to display them. They look very elegant in the beautiful porcelain vase. They look more country style in the lovely copper thimble and in the very lovely basket. A feast for my eyes.
Hugs, Drora

Piikko zei

Ilona, I am speechless! My cheek is down and my moth wide open. Ilona, is there anything you can not make!? Your flowers are like real ones! Real beauties. <3 That is all I can say this time.

Sarah zei

They are just beautiful Ilona! I love these flowers in miniature, so time consuming, but very worth it. You've made them perfectly, with the varying tones, I think that really shows how special they are! I love the little thimble too, what a great find.

Elizabeth S zei

I'm in LOVE!!! Your work is OUTSTANDING and these hydrangeas are simply INCREDIBLE in ALL of their colors.

Sanne zei

Hydrangeas are one of my garden favourites, because of the colours they produce. You work is beautifull!
