Primavera

§ Mi sento molto meglio !!!
La mia voce è ancora un mix tra quella di Amanda Lear e Darth Vader ma riesco a parlare anche per 5 minuti di seguito.
Che è infinitamente più di quello che riuscivo a fare finora prima di boccheggiare come un pesce fuor d'acqua.
Oggi ci sarà la prova del fuoco: torno al lavoro .
Vi racconterò come è andata.


§  I feel much better !!!
My voice is still a mix between those of Amanda Lear and Darth Vader but I can even manage to talk 5 minutes on stretch.
This is infinitely more than what I could do before starting to gasp like a fish on dry land.
Today there will be the big trial : I am going back to work.
I shall tell you how it has gone.

§ Ovviamente in questi giorni di quiete forzata non sono rimasta con le mani in mano e, visto che la Primavera fuori è scoppiata e io non me la godevo, ho portato un pochino di spirito primaverile in casa mia.
Ho fatto dei fiori :o)))))

§ Obviously during those forcibly quiet days I had not idle hands and, since Spring has exploded outside and I couldn't enjoy it, I brought a bit of spring spirit inside my home.
I made flowers :o)))))

 §  Questo è il mio tavolo con tulipani, peonie e campanule.
Sembra un lavoro da niente ed in realtà mangia un saaaaaacco di tempo.

§ Here is my table with tulips, peonies and bellflowers.
It looks like a trifle work but in reality it is time consuming.

§  Le peonie sono un kit di Pascale Garnier, comprato l'anno scorso e mai fatto per totale mancanza di tempo.
Onestamente non sono molto soddisfatta, ogni peonia ha circa 80 petali distinti ma non sono riuscita a creare l'effetto morbido e "pomponoso" (mi si passi il neologismo) dei veri fiori.
Devo impratichirmi un po' e poi riprovare.

§ The peonies are a kit by Pascale Garnier, bought last year and never done for absolute lack of time.
Honestly I am not very happy, each peony has up to 80 separate petals but I didn't achieve the soft, fluffy look of real flowers.
I must practise a bit and then try again.

§  Un altro kit di Pascale e di questo sono felice.
La brocca ed il catino languivano in un angolo da anni , quando ho visto questo kit mi si sono illuminati gli occhi. Anche se non si vede molto dentro ogni fiore c'è un pistillo ed ogni corolla ha i sepali.
Fantastico kit di grandissima soddisfazione.

§ Another kit by Pascale of which I am very happy.
The jug and bowl have been languishing in a corner for years so when I saw this kit I brightened up. Even though it's hardly visible inside each flower there is a stamen and each cup has its own sepal.
Gorgeous kit of great satisfaction.


§ Ma la più grande soddisfazione sono stati i tulipani.
Non perchè siano particolarmente realistici ma perchè erano un kit di Bonnie Lavish francamente un po' tristino.
La carta era spessa ed in teoria bianca. Dico in teoria perchè essendo i fiori tagliati al laser , magnifico taglio comunque, avevano un colore di carta bruciata decisamente poco invitante.
Mi sono armata di colori e vernice e mi sono sbizzarrita.
Le foglie hanno ancora bisogno di un ritocchino ma mi riprometto di farlo presto, così come mi riprometto di cambiare il vaso che proprio non ci azzecca niente. Pensavo qualcosa di blu, oppure rosso ..... ci penserò.

§ But the greatest satisfaction have been these tulips.
Not because they are particularly realistic  but because they started from a Bonnie Lavish kit which frankly was a bit sad.
The paper was thick and white in theory. I say in theory because being the flowers laser cut, wonderful cut BTW, they had  definitely a not appealing burnt colour.
I braced myself with colours and varnish and I had fun.
The leaves are still in need of a touch up but I promised myself to do it soon as I can, as well as I promised to change the vase which really doesn't match at all. I was thinking of something blue, or red ..... I shall think about it.

cockerina ha detto...

oh! bene, sono felice di sentire che stai meglio, anche se.. sai che la voce rauca alla Amanda Lear è considerata molto sexi?? ;)
per quanto riguarda i fiori hai ragione, sono tutti molto belli, ma anche io preferisco le campanule, mi sembrano effettivamente molto realistiche, brava!!

Pubdoll ha detto...

So glad to hear you're feeling a bit better! And the flowers are gorgeous, what an effort! I have no patience at all, so making flowers is clearly not something for me!
You did a great job on colouring the tulips too!
Here there is still some snow left, infact it snowed the other day, but at least it's nice to see the spring flowers pop up in blogland!

Debbie ha detto...

Sans! ha detto...

I definitely want to know all about your 1st day back at work :).

I don't know if I will ever make flowers. They never seem trifle to me unless I bash them ..tehe.

I think you have done a fabulous job with all of them. And I agree with you, the colours of the tulips look real now. This genre cost dearly in Singapore and are sold only in very high end shops to be given by guilty rich husbands to their wives :):).

Vittoria A. ha detto...

Wee Cute Treasures ha detto...

Hi Rosanna, what a fantastic job you did with these flowers. They look fantastic. I love the bell-flowers. I have a peony kit from Pascale and am dreading making it - I didn't realise there are 80 petals per flower!!!! Beautiful. Best wishes, Carol :)
