Well, I don't love it. But I do like it. I love the idea, but I tried too hard to keep it too simple. I should have stamped the sentiment on a tag hanging from the knot. I used SU Watercolor crayons to color the leaves a bit etc. I love how thatl ooks. So, it's not exactly what I wanted, but it is nice and I do like it. At least I didn't succeed in making it as "ugly as possible." Sometimes failure is a good thing, no?

I took a styrofoam ball, cut it in half, and rubbed it together. Put the shavings in a little container and dropped a few drops of brown dye in it and then a drop or so of black. Stirred (squished with my fingers too) and let it dry for a bit. Voila. :)
