All the Way from India

 Look at this wonderful page I received from India from Maya. She based it on the coconut palm that is used
widely in her community. She says that each and every part of the coconut palm is used in daily life. She used pieces of  "plastic foil from snack packs" for the blue and green and brown paper for the trunks of the trees. She then added embroidery to add detail.
Here's the back of the page that is all embroidered.

Here's a close up. Another wonderful page for my book. Thanks Maya!

How very unique!! I think your friend has made a beautiful page with snack wrappers. All that stitching and texture, just brilliant.

Very cool! I never would have thought of using the materials she used. Love it.
