Embellisher Experiment #8, continued: Trees

I literally just looked up from the embellisher and out the window to get inspiration for the next step in this experiment. Yesterday's basic hillsides were meant to be covered by a couple of trees in the foreground...

I started with this sort of flimsy knitable "ribbon". I think it is polyester...it felted on like a breeze.

On the left of the picture you can see the variegated woolen yarn I used for the smaller branches.

And now I am adding some apple blossoms out of 4mm ribbon from Riversilks. There will no doubt be some out of season flowers added in the foreground before this is all over!

Mmm-apple blossom. You certainly have the touch with the embellisher, Allie. Looks like so much fun.And so full of the promise of Spring.

This may sound like a silly question from some but what is an embellisher? Your work is lovely and I enjoy reading your blog.

What a clever way to show the changing of the seasons. You could have a whole series of little pieces that show the view from your window and even use them as CQ blocks for a much larger piece. Very nice work!

That sky is ethereal. It looks like layers of translucent tissue paper. Apple blossoms--what a cool idea.
