Project

Aspen Trees

What are you most proud of? The finished product. I love how the addition of paint makes the project take on a realistic quality. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Think through each step before sewing, I placed some of the background leaves behind the trees and then applied to trucks as the last step before painting and thread painting the grass.
