Practice landscape

I did get the mountains pieced and  the border attached , and a table runner put together yesterday. So today was guilt-free play time.
This took about 2 1/2 hours to put together following the technique in Accidental Landscape.  I didn't have a real photo to work from, I  just followed the practice first lesson, and here's what I ended up with......

The tree, rocks and a few thread painted leaves were my idea and not part of the lesson.  I needed to push the landscape back and create some depth.  It is only 8 1/2" by 9 1/2 ".  Most of the fabrics I used were some of the hand painted ones I did this spring. 
So now, I have to choose a border.  They both have the colors of the scene, but I think the blue on the right does a better job.  The other one is too greyed for this. 
Lesson 2 tomorrow.....I hope.
 
Happy Stitching....Debbie
