Inspired by walks in the forest, this wall decor combines subtle natural colors with bright and dreamy hues.
The driftwood was collected on Vuosaari beaches, sanded and cleaned. Next, I carved mushrooms, flowers, and leaves from clay, and painted them with multiple layers of watercolor to give that depth. Then I added hand-dyed wool yarn to bring it all together. Finishing with some sparkling gemstones and iridescent paint for reflections under the light.
