Tiny Tree Parade

Happy Friday!  I want to share the tiny tree of life sculptures I've been working on the last few days.  I now have four trees that I really think are interesting.  They are all similar, so my next step is to branch out a bit; get it-branch out?  I am a bit goofy, I've had too much coffee this morning.  I had a photo shoot and had so many tree photos that collegeing them was the only answer.  So here they are, in the order they were made:  Tiny Trees!


I adore the tiny pink tree, it was my first mini and my first vivid color.  The base helps balance the tree and I love that it looks like a flower.  Just pretty.


I was not sure the white tree would look as good as the pink.  I think it worked out, the white tree definitely has it's own charm.  


I think this silver one is my favorite.  The clear glass sparkles, even in subdued light.  This one is slightly bigger than the pink and white ones.  It stands approx. one and three fourths inches tall and around.


I totally love this green and silver version too.  Maybe they are all my favorite;).  I stayed up too late taking photos, and ended up with way too many of this one.  This green one is the biggest, almost two inches tall and around!  It is just slightly larger than the silver and clear tree.

Here they are all together:


So a few of my family members think that my branches are too heavy with leaves.  I understand what they mean, I've seen other tree sculptures and they have fewer leaves.  I just like this look.  It makes me think of real trees.  I do plan on trying leaner trees, more like bonsai.  We'll see how today's experiments turn out.

Thanks for checking out my Tiny Trees.



Have a lovely Friday!

    1. Thanks. Yes, my Mom had those trees and they were the coolest. I can't seem to find anything like them on the web. I am having fun trying to figure out how to get as close as possible to what she had.

  14. Autum is right around the corner. When you do your gem stone one you could use different stone for different shades of leaves. I'm from upstate New York though, I do t know where you li e but we get very very vivid colors in the trees before the leaves fall off. And that could be a neat idea. Esp. if you use something like copper or oxidized copper for the base.
