ok ok, technically it's not a finish since i'm still working the background, but it's serious progress!
instead of beating myself up about all the "coulda, woulda, shoulda" aspects of this piece, i'm just going with the flow and taking deep breaths.
i'm glad i was able to practice more of my ribbon roses, i think they turned out ok!
i went back and forth on background options. but at the end of the day, there is so much going on that i didn't want to distract from that. thoughts on the pink? love it? hate it?
