Postcard 118...Trade Being Arranged!
(Click on image to enlarge.)
This postcard was created after slicing up an older work called Feminine Beauty. It had been a collage of late 19th century engravings (mostly fans and jewelry) on citron colored linen with painted Wonder Under (Bond-a-Web), bits of lace and millinery net, and metallic foiling. It was heavily hand stitched, beaded, and included couched on pieces of costume jewelry and buttons.
The reverse is a piece of off-white vinyl. I used polymer emulsion to glue the front to the back in order to secure threads snipped when the original work was sliced. It is signed and dated in ink.
I'm thrilled to be trading with Lise who blogs here. Lise blogged about our trade here.
