Berry Tree

This bird has a partner I just didn't put it in this picture. I am making some really cool prints with mulberry paper so I'm scanning these before I put them on their permanent backgrounds. The prints I have done with the mulberry paper are really great because you can see all the fibers, pedals, leaves and such. When they were printed I had one of those "giddy squeal" moments because I loved they way they looked. Aren't those moments the best? However, I did realize I couldn't have backgrounds because it just wasn't the look I was going for.

I did this using only paper and matte medium as my glue. All the papers had already been distressed so all I did was cut away.

My work in progress pictures always stink because it's usually an after thought. Plus, I used my iPhone to take this picture.That's something I will work on.

Very pretty! So intricate! I'm with you though on the "during" shots. Usually taken with my phone... and usually I'm working at night so I don't have good lighting.
