Spring Blossoms

Spring Blossoms at Sakura Hobby Crafts

AAAHHH, the first signs of spring are starting to make themselves known. And none too soon if you ask me. And because this is my very first post for the Sakuka Design Team, I wanted to include one of my favorite things with all of you in this post.
"FLOWERS" 
I have a huge passion for bright colors and anything that reminds me of my garden. So I created this canvas piece to remind me of whats just around the corner.

I love how bright and shimmery the mixers are and I had a lot of control on where and how the alcohol affected the end result.
