D&B - 5

Well the tree count is up to 125...really!
I should have kept track of the "shrubbery". (At least 100 and I'm sure I'll need that many more!)
The dogwood is coming into its brilliant red.
I scrunched all the cheesecloth up to about 12 inches so I think that limits the bottom. It adds some much needed interest to the backing and camouflage to the forest floor.
I layered it, too, with some dark netting. I needed to "tame" the material.
I think, however, I'm at the point where I need to mount this now with batting and canvas. I need to start thread painting tree detail and that will simply eat up the material it its not well restrained.
