In my room I had to take down the shades because they were starting to rip. The material was really interesting though and had this papyrus paper feeling. I brought in my old shades and cut a large rectangle out of it. Then using a chair top traced a circle in the middle of it. I then drew it in with red watercolor pencil and then painted over it with water. On one side I used black ink to paint a large Japanese cherry blossom. Using regular paint I mixed white and reds to get the pedal color. On the opposite side I wrote in black ink, "Japanese Cherry Blossom Tree By Emma"
