Create a whimsical mixed media mini tapestry using basic weaving techniques with beautiful yarns and fibers on a simple loom of burlap and matboard. Then, layer strips of book pages, mulberry paper, or printed sheets to build your visual story. Finally, embellish with found objects, beads and jewelry components, buttons and paper flowers, or sticks and other natural items. When you’ve finished, you’ll have your own fiber arts mini tapestry, approximately 5 x 7 inches. Add a matboard frame or display its raw edges as created!
