Here is my version of the sunflower lesson. I did take liberties with it. It is on a 12x16 stretched canvas. I used wooden skewers instead of pipe cleaners and I used black floral glass instead of the beads.

Nice work on the sunflower, Sherri.   You took wonderful liberties.

Nolan must be loving this - we are all having fun improvising on the sunflower.

Thanks Denise, Danielle, Patricia and Mea. I am really enjoying the mixed media.

Mea I am trying to take what Nolan is teaching us and try to apply it. Not always possible but hoping it will push my art that one step further.

This project used glu gun to attach the sunflower petals.  Could one uses acrylic medium gel as glue?
Thanks
Cheers, Annie

Technically you can but the glue gun glue dries quick which allows you to twist and bend the petals while drying. Gel dries a lot slower so if you need to do the same you would need something to hold the petal in place while the gel dries to ensure the petal doesn't jump back to it's natural shape
