I get many compliments on the modge podge hand trees I made in our living room. I wanted to try this project again and trees are kind of my fave.
This winter I cut oodles of snowflakes out for the windows with Cricut Winter Lace cartridge. One of the flakes I loved is a peace sign flake. Then I thought- Hey! Those could easily become leaves!
We've got the top part all ready! Next, is the trunk. I was going to trace my hand making a peace sign as the trunk. But, I wanted to try to fit it in with The CSI Project Typography challenge. My idea was to have the tree roots "sprouting" from the word PEACE.
Not really sure it's typography, but we will see if they remove me :)
I considered trying to cut with an xacto knife out of paper, but trying my hand at painting seemed more doable.
After it dried, I stood there thinking I HATE THIS! It needed something more. Honey Bunny suggested grass, a bunny, and an attacking fox. Hmmm.
No pictures of the next painting process because I thought the project was scrapped and I could not make it any worse.
I took black and started adding details. I was channeling my inner Bob Ross. A happy little knot here and a slight touch of shadow there. It went over the modge podge surface with no problem!
