Patricia...thank you...I guess you could hear my frustration all the way from here!  This was another I did only from the PDF - so, maybe I should return to watching the videos!  But thank you again - you made me feel better!  :)

Jani, thank you so much.  The more I look at it, I feel like it should have been a little "looser" if that makes any sense...but that would be a great invitation to fiddle if I even go there...LOL.  Something's bothering me with it but I can't say just what.  Time to put it away and look again maybe next year!  LOL   :thankyou: again!  :1hug:

Lovely rendition Mary.  O0 My only other comment is maybe soften the trunk line up the center, or give it a bit of a hit and miss look. The solid line gives it a 'feather' like look. Does this make sense to you?
All in all .....  :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap:
Cheers, Val

Val...yes, yes, YES!!!  That was it!  I couldn't see it but now I do...thank you!  Now THAT'S the kind of fix I can do!  I'm thinking the shadows under the bushes and walls might need to be a bit darker too?   :thankyou: :thankyou: :thankyou:
