Fabric Mixed Media Postcard

I made this mixed media postcard for a swap group i,m in the challenge was to stick objects on a card and stamp with it onto our own dye,d fabric, then make a postcard,so the background sprays you can see are bits of old Xmas decs brokeup,the butterfly i stamped and coloured then went over with Anita,s 3D clear gloss over the top,then beaded,enjoyed doing it !

I should be catching up in my journal or finishing my painting,but here i am making a 4x4 fabric bird book,I just flip from one thing to another !......Its raining,dark and very humid here,so having a break,feels like there is a storm on the way........... Cant wait to get these pages finished so I can start on the cover,my pages are all backed with felt,layered up with fabric images,and some lace and feathers,I have completed all the pages now just working on beading and embellishing each one.......

Twisted Easel Cards

Something else new i,m trying,never heard of this type of card before,very addictive !once i got the hang of folding the card,was well away ! The tulip type card needs more embellishing,proberly a pink bow or ribbons. Loveeeee trying new things out,at least i,ll have some cards ready for birthdays :))

Trying a New Technique

Yes i tried,First layer painting on Gesso,spraying Dylusions ink,then wiping over with a baby wipe,allowing to dry,cutting a flower piece from a Napkin,then layering on with Mod Podge...then i overpainted the flowers,to give some more definition,it worked for me.........heres the link if you want to try here Astrid Maclean,s beautiful work !I made mine into a watercolour Notepad.
