Hi Everyone! My friend Joan brought me this idea of a Family Tree. The leaves have family menbers' names on them. Joan and I both made two versions. I'll post the materials used here later tonight.(We're still crafting!) But I wanted to get some of the pictures up. Video is posted in 2 parts. On the second one, my camera did not capture what I was showing so I have other close ups below. Happy Crafting! ~Dee
Above: One of my versions. Softer tones and a full leaf tree. Below: Joan's earth tones. She used the wing of the two-step bird punch to make a smaller bird! Also note how she stamped the sentiment direct to ribbon.
Below: My version of the original inspiration design. Tree trunk on far left and branches and leaves flowing across the side. I wanted to try a non-traditional color palette and choice the background from our new designer paper in the Summer Mini.
Below: Joan found this crackled paper and knew that was the look she wanted to use for the background. She used a beige crackle paper for a birch-bark like look.
