The first wasn’t as successful as the second, initial design-wise, but I’m hoping I can fix some of the problems in the embellishment stage: the most glaring being the horizontal line a third of the way down that goes all the way across the block! That came from using a block that was too big as my first block, and putting it down too close to the bottom of the block off the bat… Lesson learned. But I REALLY wanted to use the entire leaf!
The second block is better balanced, but to my eye it seems VERY busy. Of course, I was told to “overload” it, so this may be a good thing!
