My DIY ~ Suzani art work.
Suzani, a form of traditional embroidered textile from Central Asia , now adorn the sofas
beds and pillows of many homes. Suzani shapes - like wheels, flowers, leaves and scrolling
borders - are showing up on everything. The bright colors and intricate motifs go with
modern and traditional decorating styles.
I cut out suzani motifs from wrapping paper and decoupaged them on a painted canvas. Used Yellow ochre as a base color and glued these motifs . once dried protect the canvas with a clear Matte finish sealer / varnish. A trial project costs under $7 including the canvas and wrapping paper from my favorite store World Market .
