I’m working on the density of the points, and despite the heavy-handedness on the stem (and somewhat on the leaves), I think I’m making progress. The tadpoles are still present but also becoming fewer.
I did use a model. The link was not able to be copied on Pinterest, and I went to the original (etsy) site. The image isn’t on there anywhere obvious, but here’s a link. (Because I want to make sure to give refit where credit is due.)
