I have discovered a new design tool - the camera on my cell phone. For some reason I can see the project differently when I am looking at a picture. I can see the contrasts and flow of color. With the choker completed I tried to arrange the leaves. I didn't like the "flatness" of the way it looked on this picture.
So I played around with it some more and came up with this. I liked continuing with a different type of leaf and using the same colors.
That led to this. I am working on some larger leaves for a focal point in the center. I like the way it is going on right now.
