Postcard 80...Trade is 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 this postcard with Margaret who blogs here. While making this link, however, I also discovered that Margaret shared the work of of a group of silk painter and fiber enthusiasts from Marple, Stockport, UK on a blog here. Since June 2007, Margaret shares the work of the Macclesfield Branch of the Embroiderer's Guild and all the silk painters and fiber artists here.
