Postcard 95...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 have just arranged to trade this postcard with an incredible fiber artist, Frieda Oxenham whose blog is here. Frieda has blogged about our trade and CYBER FYBER here.

Hi Susan, could not resist the opportunity to swap another part of Feminine Beauty for what is another postcard with a beautiful woman, called So the Days dragged and featured on my blog:
