Something a little different this time! Spent a great deal of time making burlap roses by hand and added them to canvas. Trio of 5x7 canvases with burlap roses. C+C always welcome, but honestly I don't think those roses are moving :D

They have an Asian feel.

Yes indeed! I used mod podge to stiffen the burlap, and I mixed some acrylic burnt umber in with it to give it a little color :)
