Twisted Trees by Friends

There are many ways to finish a "twisted tree" piece--by adding embellishments, borders, frames. Here are some made by my friends:

Jackie Watkins intertwined her twisted pieces to create larger trunks. She also embellished her piece with beads.
Polly Duggan's tree, framed under glass, with beads added (above)
Mary Nell Magee painted and tore leaves from Lutrador and glued her leaves on to add texture

Gloria Green used crazy quilting, hand embroidery, ribbon and beads
Elvia Edwards added borders

Jo-Ann Evans created an underwater scene with sea creatures, kelp, and two divers. The coral was made by the twisted tree technique
