Hello Everyone!  My name is Melanie and I live in Chandler, AZ.  I found this site a month or so ago and have been checking it out regularly.  You guys and gals have really helped me get my butt in gear! This is my first post and I hope it's ok to just post a project Grin

This is on a 16x20 canvas.  The limbs of the tree are painted in black acrylic.  The blossoms are a soft pink and a dark pink acrylic felt made from a basic pattern I drew on paper.  The stamens(I think that's what they are?)  are a dark chocolate colored embroidery floss done in stem stitch and french knot.

I've never done anything like this so I am quite please with it. I will post a collage I made separately.
