Ah yes, time for the Photo Gallery to be more 'green'. Lets see your pictures of the greenery on your layout or diorama: trees and shrubs, vines and weeds, grass and flowers. (Of course, if you model the fall or winter, you are welcome to show your pictures of the 'greenery' in the other seasons.)

I once again caution everyone to keep copyright issues in mind. If you didn't take the picture, it isn't yours to post. Links to photos on the web are allowed, however.

In consideration for those on dial-up, please keep your photos to 80KB or smaller.

A 'green' area done with Pot Toppers, foliage clumps and ground foam - all set into Ground Goop.

Nothing fancy from me, but I do have some images showing some shrubbery and trees, with the first showing a deciduous tree in the throes of fall.



Secondly, near-winter conditions with snow being supported by hardy bushes...won't be long before they are bare.

Sorry for the small picture. Digital stuff was all new when I took it.

Ray,

Pot Toppers are artificial 'turf' designed to cover 4" flower pots when inserting artificial flowers, etc. You can get them at Michaels craft stores (probably on line, too.)

They look like this in the package:



Mike C. did a tutorial here on the Forum on how to use them. Here is the link:

My first use of Silflor Prairie Tufts. I liked them! I also used jute macramé twine for the dead grass. ½” scale abandoned garage.

Just a couple of quickies to contribute to the gallery. Some of my gum trees placed on a small diorama. This was the first chance I actually had to put these new trees into a scene, with all the extra ground details and additional vegitation surrounding them.





Cheers,
Dan Pickard
