|inspiration photo from my flower beds the flowers are hyacinths|
The background I used is a piece of Northcott fabric, perfect for the earth. I used my favourite applique method 'Crafted Applique'. I rough cut the pieces I needed then touched them up with Inktense pencils, NeoColor Crayons and Sharpies.

|the leaves on the stone on the left before colouring|
|these are some of the items I used to re-touch the stones and leaves|
|after colouring the applique pieces|
You can see where I added the yellow to the leaves. I wish I would have taken more pictures as I went along but I was so absorbed in creating I never even thought about my camera. The stones now look more like what I think they should look like. Remember art is in the eye of the beholder and at this point I was the beholder or wanna be artist.
