This book, through charming examples of the author’s personal collection of full-color individual and family photo tapestries, accompanied by moving text and easy-to-follow instructions, demonstrates how readers can convert their cherished photographs into meaningful montages and collages that celebrate their most heartwarming moments, experiences and passages.
Layering a number of significant photos into a photo tapestry offers the opportunity to experience emotions evoked by the grouping. You are invited to share the joy of the activity or special event along with the subject(s) when you view their differing facial expressions, postures and collaborations in one all-conclusive piece. Photo tapestries tell dynamic visual stories. An entire mood comes across through the thoughtful composite of images and embellishments. This approach gives a more complete representation of whom or what is being portrayed as it animates personality and character aspects that single photos miss.
