Postcard 87...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 Japanese postcard brought home by my elder son Mathias after his first trip. It is signed and dated in ink.
I'm thrilled to be trading with Kate whose blog I regularly read. It is here.
