The poinsettias are Silk Ribbon. Come on now, you knew it was coming. :-) This canvas screamed for silk ribbon! We worked the flowers in layers according to the shading painted using 3 shades of silk ribbon.
There isn't a huge shade variation between the colors, but enough that it adds depth.
The part that I really thought was the most fun was the hair flower. I wanted it to look like an old fashioned beaded flower that she popped into her hair. So, first the stitching, then the beads on wire, then the twisting and tacking into place. Really fun and really gratifying when the plan comes together.
Thanks for stopping by. Happy Sunday.
