Oh, I have been neglecting my blog! I have been busy with several projects, and will post pics soon, but meanwhile here are a couple of postcards that I have recently made.
The first is a Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) card that I did just for fun with this cool fabric (Alexander Henry?) that I got on Shop Hop last year. I used a silk flower that was recycled from a broken lai that my daughter had.
The second postcard is a challenge piece that I did for the Habiliments yahoo group. The theme was "My Home is my Nest", and so this depicts my home in New Mexico, using the rich colors of the Southwest. The bird is a bead taken from an old clay necklace, and I wrapped some vine twigs from our yard with one of my favorite fibers to make the nest.
More pics coming soon, I promise!
