Another flat foundation in a cherry blossom shape, with the start of a flax leaf pattern.
For a touch of extra colour I used shell gold to form this flax leaf pattern and outlined the shape with #4 silver.
All these motifs are from the background flower ball and none of them are worked in a realistic colour scheme, so why not have a nice purple maple leaf I thought.
Ultimately all five of the larger sections will be filled in with knots.
I also worked half of another bell flower shape with #4 silver.
I am enjoying this piece very much. It is nice to go back and review a lot of techniques that I haven't used in a while.
