"June: Planting the Fields"
The idea was to use the image as background for an old glove holding a young plant. I beaded the background first, then attached the glove (after first washing it and then adding some of the dirt color back in with Magic Marker). I had to use a Glovers? needle to sew through the leather. I then put the trunk of the tree onto the glove and created the root-ball with netting and beads. The theme of new growth from an old base/ground level was the inspiration.
