A few postcards

It just occurred to me that I haven't written here for, literally, years about the fabric postcards I've been making! I am so used to making them that I just don't think to talk about them here. Of course, they appear on the Fibrecircle blog each time. Mostly, anyway!

This rather weird one included some stamped cloth that I made years ago as a sample for another piece of work, inspired by the standing stones at Filitosa in Corsica. I combined it with frayed  cotton fabric on a painted background.

This one was based on a painted background with added colour and stitch.
This one was made with one of the prints from a playday with Claire early this year. We used compressed sponge to create simple shapes to print from. I added colour to one of my prints with Inktense pencils and embellished it with stitch. It's still a pretty weird looking tree..
I like to use the postcards to try out stuff and make something different from whatever I'm working on at the time.  So they generally end up different each time.

Will we see any art based on the trip to South Africa?

I have made one African postcard but it's not that visually interesting so I didn't share it here. There's another project in the works - yet to be blogged about... so much to do, so little time!
