A couple of you suggested that the Tree of Life design would be cool as a seasons series. The first day of the challenge would have been summer, and the 11th day, fall. In honor of spring, today I have a spring Tree of Life.
In keeping with the rule that each March design will be new or (attempted to be) improved, I've continued to tweak the details. The knot hole is gone, the branches and trunk are more defined, and the roots & trunk are both a bit more twisted. This one uses aventurine leaves and two types of pink freshwater pearl flowers.
Ignoring color, which one so far do like best for style / design? If you haven't already entered the April 1 drawing, answering that question below will get you entered :)
GIVEAWAY: If you'd like to enter the One-a-day Giveaway, just post a comment on any One-a-day blog post during March, and tell me what you think of a piece and why. Read all about it here.

This is my fave of all the trees. I like the slender trunk. I felt from the thumbnails it was instantly a tree. The yellowish one I thought was a bunch of blackeyed susans.
