Fiber Postcards

I was horribly late creating some little fiber art postcards for an online group I belong to. I had all good intentions when I signed up for the groups and even had ideas percolating in the back of my mind on how to do each of them. Well, life does get in the way sometimes and it got me big this time. Even though I formally withdrew from the groups in August, many of the traders still sent me cards. I felt obligated to come up with something and get them in the mail before the end of the month. They are done but won’t get addressed and posted until probably Wednesday but I can at least breath a sigh of relief.

The leaves postcards were a 16 inch square of recycled blue silk that I used for the background of these leaf postcards. The stems and the leaves are also cut from recycled silk scarves. I really like the way these turned out.
The shiny coppery gold ones are okay and were done for an art deco theme. The copper reminded me of the arts and crafts movement as well as the fabric that looks like stained glass from that era.
The funky ones shown last were for an anything goes theme. The background is taupe ultrasuede. The orange square is cut from some silk screened and painted fabric. They have gold metallic paint splotches to jazz them up a bit.
I’m not great at moving things around in blogger yet so I hope you can follow my commentary with the photos.
