Spitalfields inspired tapestry continued

I am completing this tapestry now. Here is the completed piece, minus the huge hats. I am still deciding if I will make these. The small blue flowers come off and attach to a hat frame. There as torn sheets of silk attached to the back of the tapestry which is difficult to see here with my muslin background. I hope to get a professional shot of this soon. This piece is not a warped as it appears here.

Here you can see bits of recycled papers: brochures from the de Young Museum (images of French paintings) and Irish tea bags.

Glazing with a new glaze, a two part epoxy mix.

Small flowers attached to hat.
You can see fragments of de Young admission tickets and English tea bags.
