#151 - A Winter Landscape

I recently completed this 11" x 14" pressed flower arrangement which will be matted to fit a 16" x 20" frame.  Botanical materials included poplar, blackberry, day lilly, lilly of the valley and assorted Fall leaves; corn husks, fern, hydrangea stems, onion skins, cotton and birch bark.  The sky was colored with pastels before being covered with corn husks. A layer of Japanese sanwa paper was used to create depth. 

The original has been sold, but this design is currently available as a digital print ($20.00) and as a trivet ($18.00)
