DINISE MUSTAIN
EARTH'S TAPESTRY
2009
Pressed botanical collage
5 x 7
Original in private collection.

I do not make cards or prints of these piece.

The inspiration for this piece came from looking through a book of tapestries from all over the world. I began with leaf in the middle, then did rest by counting-2 trillium, 3 vines, 4 sumac, and so on. When finished, they were placed on a variety of hand papers with fern fronds as fringe.

It is composed of assorted plant materials some of which are: Fern fronds, Japanese maple leaves, sage leaves, elderberry flowers and handmade papers from around the world.
