Hop along with Paper Issues

Good morning!!
What a fantastic day. It's Friday the start of the weekend and The Paper Issues team is having a blog hop.

WELCOME my friends, old and new.
Hopefully, you found your way here from Amy's blog, if not please go ahead and start from the beginning go here to Paper Issues blog post.

This weeks new theme is Tree Hugger.

I love taking a blank canvas and altering it to achieve something new.

I read a quote online by Minnie Aumonier that I re-worded slightly to say, "There is always Music amongst the trees, but our hearts must be very quiet to hear it."

Which inspired this 11x14 canvas. You can click on it to see a larger version.
I had this vision of tree limbs reaching down to tenderly embrace a heart.
The tree trunk and limbs are made of tissue paper and walnut stain distress paint, and the bushy leaves is made from Moss I bought at Michael's.

The picture doesn't do it justice. The piece is full of depth, texture, and rich colors.

I am offering up my own Prize today as well, take a look.
This giveaway is now closed.
