Circle of Life - Foliage

Circle of Life

Today’s post is about the foliage that I added to the lower left and right of this piece. This section was fairly simple. Leaf shapes were cut from some purchased print fabric that had palm leaves on it. I also cut similar shapes from the dark red used for the tree trunk and sun, and leaf shapes were cut from the polka dot fabric used for the birds. I arranged in a way that looked pleasing to my eye. To add some further interest I added rick-rack leaf shapes and then embroidered some plant growth to the area. Here are some up close looks at the foliage:
