The Last Leaf: Collage

Since my usual commercial fabrics didn't seem to suit this challenge, I used pieces from a home dec fabric sample book, having bought several when my favorite fabric store was going out of business. One set in particular had mostly solid colors with nice textures. I actually settled first on the shape, though with the idea of the close-up leaf and the more distant tree in mind. I wanted the border to be brown, and finally found some corduroy which fit (can't run out and just buy what I need any more!). The veins on the leaf are a combination of thread painting and white Tsukineko® ink, which I also used on the tree trunk to give it a bit more dimension.
