Wordy Wednesday-Cherry Blossoms




A little background, I love cherry blossoms and wanted to work with a medium that I've never worked with so I bought acrylic felt and drew up a little pattern for a blossom. I cut out the blossoms and sewed little stamens on with a chocolate brown embroidery floss. I painted the branches on the canvas with an acrylic craft paint and attached the blossoms with hot glue. I love how it turned out, especially since I'd never done anything like it!
