Week Twenty-Eight: It's Winter!

Remember that Autumn tree I did? It's lost all of it's leaves!

Actually, it got sold at the last markets I went to back in April.

But here's a new one!

I liked the idea of little half pearls being added to make it look like glistening drops of snow, and I'm really happy with the effect, I think I'll make one of these again.

As I'm writing this I'm shivering despite being in long pants and a jumper. And I live no where near snow. And it's not even technically winter for two days. So I should probably be grateful that this little tree is the closest I'll be to snow this winter.

Some of the pearl beads are reinforced with a little bit of white quilling paper to keep them in place, because the little branches were a bit precarious for them to sit on.


I'm working on next week's project at the moment, it's something I've been dreaming up for a while and I'm really happy with how it's going so far. It's a framed piece, and pretty different from everything else I've done so far, but I think you'll like it. As I work on it I'm getting more ideas for other pieces like it...maybe it'll become a series!

See you next week snow bunnies,
