"My Thoughts Are With You."Fabric Postcard. Techniques : Raw-edge fusible applique with Threadpainting.
I've been wanting to do a postcard of this scene for quite some time.
My mom put this handy little tool in my Christmas stocking. It's great for placing small and fickle pieces too delicate for fingers.
I also finished 2 new quarter-size journals this weekend. The covers for these comes from a "sop cloth" in my wet studio. A sop cloth is what you use to wipe up spills, or wipe out the last bit of color from the dye pots. Some people call them serendipity fabrics. You never quite know what you're going to get. It must have been red, purple and black that day : a nice combination.
This one is for me. I'm planning to use it as a "creative calisthenics" journal, with serendipity collages and ink-splats. More on that later --when I actually get my workspace cleared enough to do some of these. I also needed a quarter-size journal of my very own, to use as a model for making more. I sold the last one I had at the craft sale in December. I picked up some embellishment at the local liquidator store : a heart with wings. I'm curious as to how long it will stay on the cover. So consider it a test.
