Textile art collage

This piece measures about 8 x 8 inches. It is created on heavy fabric canvas. The wording is fabric. One of the trees is made out of a vintage fabric yo yo. I painted the houses on muslin fabric, then machine stitched them onto heavy canvas. I gessoed the fabric before I painted it to give it a stiffness. After I finished sewing the pieces I painted the trees over the top with acrylic paint.
