Why Cherry Blossoms?

In 2018 I embarked on an ambitious project, creating over 10,000 cherry blossoms for display in six Seattle stores (read more about it here). Such a massive undertaking in very little time didn’t dampen my enthusiasm for this magical bloom, and I’m excited to share my expertise with you. It’s impossible to have too many cherry blossoms!

In this comprehensive tutorial, I’ll guide you through the process of meticulously creating detailed cherry blossoms.
