One of my favourite fantasy themes have taken control over me these last weeks. So the Whomping Willow woke up near the castle and many more castle themed trees will make an appearance.
In a sence it did feel like I was a bit out of place.. This tree is a bit dark and it would be well suited for autumn/Halloween season, but I enjoyed creating it. It felt like I was a young witch walking in the grounds of Hogwarts.. So at the end it was all good fun.
Another item I love working with is gemstones. Some of you might have noticed that on my calendar trees I mostly use birthstones to represent each month. It has abeen a pleasure working with this conept, so I decided why not working with these stones on a more regular basis than once a month.. So the malachite tree and the African turquoise tree were born
Lovely stones with many healing and mystial properties
The last tree that was created tese days was a themed tree inspired by The Lord Of The Rings books. I ve always been intrigues with Mallorn trees. These silver trees with golden leaves. I ve always wanted to roam in these old forests of Middle Earth and in a sence I am doing just that every time I create something inspired by this world and these books. I chose silver plated wire and crystals in a warm apricot/golden color. It shimmers so beautifully in the sunlight. It warms my heart just watching it by the window.
So as you can see spring has started in the Grove with a bit of gothic/dark creations and ended up in warm green colors. Exciting times are coming and I do hope we ll all have a prosperous spring. Till next time be safe, happy and dont forget to enjoy springtime.
