Under the Ocean of Blue

About this design:

I think stacking the silk sari in wave-like fashion goes well with the octopus charms I purchased on etsy. A little artsy composition inspired by a ribbon design I saw on pinterest.

    What a novel idea! It really gives the impression of the ocean with critters lurking under the waves. Love it! :D
