Followed by using the fan pattern as the ground.
Then the snowdrops were added. Luckily I had some beads from an aunts old necklace that had a twist and looked just like snowdrop buds all rolled up.
Finally the snow and leaves were added. The first snowflake was actually going to be a pale winter's sun but as soon as I saw it I thought of those big fat snowflakes when you can see the shape and crystals. In fact it was my favourite part making each snowflake different.
Ta-dah. The finished leaf.
Love since it's February was the word at the back of my head. In fact I was thinking of a quote I thought I had included in a photograph album when our first child was born. However I just went to look for it and couldn't find it. The gist of it was about giving your child roots so they could fly. The fan pattern used for the ground is very much the secure loving foundations I had as a child and I hope that we have given the same to our children. Being with the people I love, doing the things I love to do and visiting the places I love is a joy and makes me who I am :)
