Tapestry of Life

For this page, I wanted to weave a tapestry, but since I don’t know how, I did the next best thing, sewing. I started with black fabric that had white leaves printed on it. I painted over the fabric with red, blue, and silver. Then, I stiched gold ribbon on three sides of the fabric, and went wild with gold thread, sequins and shisha. All hand stiched (except for the shisha, which I glued onto the fabric.)
