Window Theme Fabric Postcard
I have finished my "windows" theme for Postmarkd'art and they will be in the mail next week. The photo is printed on fabric. While "creating" the postcard, I looked in my stash of fabric that I had purchased in a small quilt store in Amsterdam, Holland. And found a piece that almost matches the design that is in my Aunts curtains.
I added lace at the top like is shown in the window and yarns to separate the areas.. Each postcard has a different word on the bottom.. Some say Discover, Precious, Joyous, and Bloom and grow.
It is fun to be able to share this photo with you. Now ideas are flooding about the other "window" photos I took while on that trip in Austria. Wish I had time to make all the ideas that flood through my mind..
I am a mixed media fiber/quilt artist who loves to work with gourds,and jewelry. I am easily distracted with the next project, and have many going at one time. I have been teaching Fabric Dyeing and Beginning gourd art for many years. I am blessed with my own home studio. We live in the rolling hills near Yosemite National Park, in central Calif. U.S.A. This is a place of Inspiration, Blue Skies and Great Friends. I volunteer with several organizations,and have memberships in P.E.O., Coarsegold Historical So., Sierra Art Trails, Madera Circle Gallery, Yosemite Western Artist, Timberline Gallery and Sierra Mountain Quilters. I teach at my home studio and at local quilt gatherings.
