I had picked up this little vintage frame at Lamb's Gate Antiques in Old Town Lansing. It seemed like the perfect base for this leaf panel. Plus it's not nearly as overwhelmingly large. The first leaf panel is much more open, and I wanted the leaves on this piece to be a little more packed together. There was so much going on in it, and I still wanted that negative space within the frame, so I stitched leaves together until I was happy with this shape within the frame.
This piece is 12 in x 10 in x .75 in and will be on display at Grove Gallery for my "Creating a Nature" Exhibit which opens on March 3rd in downtown East Lansing. If you're close, I hope you can make it out!
