Botanical sketches

The time came again for another Fabric8 contest. This time the theme was "botanical sketchbook." I made some drawings of acorns and maple seeds and put those together - kind of a "tree babies" theme.

Maple and oak babies - aqua

The background texture is the ivy vines I've used a few times before. As usual, I didn't make the cut for the final 100 so I don't know how many votes I got. Most people just went for "botanical" and didn't try to make it look like anything from a sketchbook. My favorite entries were this smaller-scale assortment, this lush arrangement with birds, these delicate roses, and the wildflowers and mushrooms.
