Pin-ter-vention: Cherry Blossom Christmas Bow

I've been pushing around paint all day, working on my Monthly Painters Challenge piece that's due in two days time! I've gotten to the point where I can no longer put more paint on because the more paint I put on, the muddier the oil gets and the image has turned brown. That beautiful light has disappeared and I won't get it back until the paint has dried.  I'm beginning not to see the painting through the paint, if that makes sense.  It's a perfect time to take a break and make a little Christmas cheer from one of my Pinterest boards - to share over at the Pin-ter-vention party.

My inspiration {Watch the how to video animation to make these Cherry Blossoms}

My 'Cherry Blossom Christmas Bow' is made up of three various sized Cherry Blossoms made from Christmas wrapping paper. I've used double sided tape to hold the Blossoms in place.
