WIP Wednesday


So, you'll remember on Monday, I had drawn out my trees on paper.  Since I was out of Steam-a-Seam, I actually used that paper as my template for my trees.  I did so by brushing thinned out craft glue onto the fabric, laying my paper template over top and cutting it out.  Which meant I had fabric with paper glued onto it when I was done.

And so later that day, BSP called out from the bathroom: "Honey, there's a tree in the sink. Should I wash my hands in the kitchen?" :)






After I had carefully dried out my fabric trees, I even more carefully sewed them down to my base.  (Those tiny little branches were VERY fiddly.)




The next layer is composed of two more trees... which I once again drew out on tracing paper...




referencing my original sketch of focal point, land and water.

Come by on Friday to see the finished product!
