Postcard 68...Trade Being Arranged!

(Click on image to enlarge.)

This postcard was made after cutting up an older piece of work. That work was made as the centerpiece for my first solo exhibition. It was based on architectural elements found in Gothic and Romanesque churches. The piece was created using chiffons on a heat transfer painted base. It was free motion embroidered. The original is pictured here.

It is signed and dated in free motion embroidery on the reverse. The material used on the back is a piece of vintage tone-on-tone blue batik.

I am thrilled to be trading with Nikki whose blog I regularly read and who has inspired some of my best experiments and who taught me how to made fabric paper and who is also part of the Invitational section of CYBER FYBER! Nikki blogged about our trade here.
