The Magic Trees

In response to the Quote Graffiti prompt 1 ~

"A painter told me that nobody could draw a tree without in some way becoming a tree."


Ralph Waldo Emerson, "History," Essays


I used sequins and glitter to make the magic tree !
I spread a layer of modelling/polystyrene Glue, arrange the sequins then the glitter.


About Quote Graffiti :
Every other Wednesday, a quote will be posted.

Edited 30/11/09, found Create Tuesday in world of blogging, the theme for this week is "TREE" sounds .....So the theme is to draw, paint, or create a tree or trees with your own ideas. The image of the same tree above does not do justice to the idea but I think you get the point.
