This is my version of the Tree of Life Design. Using a canvas background floated on tearaway with basting spray to secure it, I selected individual pieces of cloud, sunset, stone, and grass fabric and appliqued according to Kara’s great instructions. The tree was finished with 3 different tree colors. I felt that the banners on the bottom needed something a little extra, so I used Embrilliance to add the wording and the leaves. I sized the design to fit in an 8x10 frame, although once I attached the canvas around some heavy cardboard it was a little tight, so it stands out a bit from the frame, but looks 3D, which I like even better than it laying flat! Overall, the colors remind me of the views I see everyday, although here in the desert, big trees are few and far between! But the gorgeous skies are the best!!
