The next card is one from an online group challenge. It had to come all the way from Canada , and it cost Mary Lou Curry $1.05 to mail it from there. The theme here was two colors plus a button. I'm particularly fond of her color choices, and all the different things she used to create this quilted card. She mailed it in a clear envelope so none of the attached yarns snagged in the postal machinery.
This next card with the line up of women, is the one I sent to Roberta. I made 8 of them for the swap and didn't make an extra for myself. Wish I had. I guess I"ll have to dig out that special fabric again and do it later. I've saved the fabric for several years, waiting for the right thing to use it on. It seemed like a good opportunity to share it with some artist friends by using it on post cards.
I made a fabric envelope to house a birthday present I made for my granddaughter in Boston. I thought the fabric was so lovely I could not resist. One the other side I stitched on the address labels, and a piece of paper where the postal stamp would be attached. I wonder if she'll recycle the fabric?
The last one is using the same technique over fabric with a collaged paper element over it placed with gel medium, and then the whole piece was coated with a diluted white glue,, so it's sort of plasticized.
These are a few of the things I've been up to or have received. Enough for one post. More to come.
