I keep forgetting to show you my Postmark'd art postcards. We are on our 14th round, and I signed up for 3 different themes. I just finished Steampunk. I used commercial fabric, and my hand-dyed orange.. Rubber stamped the design, added the metal, I think they are called gears with pukka beads and small brass beads. Glued some tiny beads to the edge of the design. Used an ink pad to subdue the commercial fabric, it was just too white..
Received some wonderful postcards in the mail... we are all sort of running with the same idea... I guess that is what portrays "Steampunk" wheels, watch parts, moving creative pieces.. I looked up Steampunk Art on the computer and the art exhibits are very creative and fascinating.Visions of Jules Vern.
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.
