So I stuck with what I said in an earlier blog posting and did actually make a little series of 3 out of the Birch Trees at Night idea. For the 3rd one though, I wanted to make it just a little different. Still run on the same theme, use the same colors – but make it a little different somehow.
The somehow different came in the form of adding a bit of 3-D. I love 3-D mosaic stuff. I’ve done a little bit in the past, but not a lot. A trip to the local hardware store for some various bits of wood – a few cuts with the mitre saw ( which I adore using and want to find every excuse in the world to cut something with it!!! <–my Dad would have been so proud of that statement 🙂 ) and I had some bits that I could glue to my wedi board and make it so my trees weren’t all just flat on the same surface.
The indecisive Libra in me took quite a long time playing with different layout ideas, but in the end settled on a set of 5 trees in 3 different widths and also 3 different heights. Here’s just a few “in-progress” pics, next week I’ll show you the final outcome!
