Progress on the April TIF

The tree which is in full bloom symbolizes change.We need to make changes and more educated choices to reverse global warming and the climate crisis.
Have to start work on the page on the left which will have more text. The tree made of tussar silk applique and sequins. All these are from my stash. I haven't had to go out and buy a thing thus far.
Detail of the foliage and flowers on the tree.The colours are loosely based on the palette for this month.
I think I'll have the pages for April completed by the end of the month.

Beautiful tree. Love the way the sequins enhance the tree.

Thank-you Tanguera for visiting and leaving a comment.I really like sequins,to me a sequin shop is the equivalent of a child in a candy shop.

Finally got a chance to catch up. The tree is simply lovely. Has an enchanted look about it. Lots of trees coming into bloom in HK. The mimosa's just started.

Hope you got a chance to photograph the mimosa's.Trees are done with the flowering here in Bangalore now to look out for interesting seed pods.Busy weekend ahead for you.

Hi Embellisher,
This is beautiful! There is so much energy in the colors, textures and stitches. I'm excited to see the final product.

Thanks Caroline, for visiting.Working on finishing the April TIF,embroidering text freehand is not the easiest thing to do.
