    Japan Spring

    Its time for the Cherry Blossoms. I painted blossoms and made them into stickers. I used them to flesh out the branches.

    Blossom stickers

    Thank you all for your encouraging comments. I have to admit I really struggled with this one. As simplistic as it is, I did quite a few versions of it before I settled on this one. I am not exactly patient when it comes to taking a lot of time with a painting. Trying to get the blossoms to look like blossoms was especially difficult. I finally thought I would try painting some using a reference image. I saved the final painting to make a sticker. The resulting sticker looked even better then the original painting. Using the sticker spray tool allowed shadowing that gave some depth.

    I've attached a view of the variety of paintings I used to make the blossom stickers.

    Mt Fuji is so iconic of Japan. I have a great deal of respect for the Japanese and their artisans. The craftsmanship is extraordinary.

    Beautiful painting! It reminds me that spring has to come - even if it seems still a long time away (It is awfully cold here in Berlin, Germany).
    And now I've a very dumb question (I tried to search for the answer, but couldn't find it): how to get a sticker into the sticker spray? I found tutorials on how to make your own stickers, but none up to now about how to use them with the spray. I would be very glad about any help! Thanks in advance!
