The Sakura Painting is complete! 😀 I wanted to share some of the details.
I used pine cones and twigs to create organic textures for the blossoms, and built up the tree using various papers and fiber paste. The glass beads are hand placed and individually glued. I think all of this resulted in a highly textured dynamic piece! I am so pleased with the outcome, it felt like the tree was coming to life!
