    I kind of like the way they turned out.

    I saved the hardest for last, since I'm a newbie to GIMP. But it's turning out to be the best yet.

    Sassafras is quite a challenge. I mean you can't just paint a tree root, so I decided on a branch tip with leaves and berries and call it Root Wine.

    I still have quite a bit of touch up left to do on this one and just noticed I spelled sassafras wrong, I added an extra s.

    Did you know that a sassafras tree has three different shaped leaves :th

    The 3 different leaves makes it easy to spot out in the woods.

    Finished Sassafras label, i went with a cleaner design on this one. Maybe I'll change the others to match this cleaned look at some point in time - IDK, it's one of those things that you can continue to tweak and never be done.

    I like the clean crisp look to the Sassafras label.
    I like the others also. They are all just really cool.

    My wife came in the kitchen, when I was done labeling these and said "Hey you want to get drunk and run around in the back naked". I said sure. Then she said "yeah right, not happening". Well dang!!!
