April's Tree Page from Elizabeth

Here's what I got in the mail today. It's a beautiful tree page from Elizabeth with a flower photo card.
Elizabeth used fabric paper as the background, then stamped with one of her wonderful hand carved tree stamps. She added leaves and beads to the tree and around the edge. She says that she often uses music in her collage compositions and then found the poem about the music of trees.
The poem is:
There is always music amongst the trees in the garden,
but our hears must be very quiet to hear.
Here's the back. She used some of her hand dyed fabric where she used a flour paste resist and then stamped another tree. Thanks Elizabeth! I love it.
Here's a small peak at the page I am working on now with the theme of leaves. I've completed the front, now I just need to decide on the back and sew it all together.
