Here are the leaves (and petals) stuck to painted Bondaweb, on velvet.
This is for class later today. We're starting to look at texture, so I've done a "Thittichai!"
And here are the trees:
I've been photographing things for the Etsy shop, and trying to come up with ways to capture the 'spirit' of these amulets. They're so long, I can't photograph them on the dining room table and the light in the living room is not good, hence the trip to the woods - but they kept blowing about in the breeze outside! And you'd think it would be a easy to find suitable tree with interesting bark and an appropriate branch to hang things on, in a wood - full of trees? Think again!
I still need to fiddle with the photos, so they're not in the shop yet, but a few other things are. I think this is why I have so many things at home that should be in the shop but aren't - I'm no photographer!
And now I'm off to play with more trees, namely our EG branch entry for this summer's Regional Challenge...can't say more until July!
