I have somehow managed to make all the postcards look skewiff (sp?) in the photographs.
Firstly from Jacqueline, a postcard using Fibre in-Form foil.
I recently sent Jacqueline some Irise Film to try and this is one of the pieces she created with it. Its A4 size and has a wonderful texture with layers of fabric, Irise film, netting and organza held down with machine stitch and then zapped.
She also enclosed some of these little cards from Flickr - what a great idea they are too.
This is the ATC I put my name against from Susan Lenz who is organising the Cyber Fiber Exhibition. This is a wonderful idea and a great opportunity to have your art on show. Susan has made 163 postcards and 130 ATC's which she has put up for trade. All you have to do is put your name against the one you would like, either an ATC or a postcard and send Susan one in return which will go on display in the Cyber Fyber Exhibition scheduled for January 2009.
Go to the Cyber Fiber Exhibition blog to find out all about the exhibition and how to trade.
This ATC is number 21 on the list and you can read all about it if you go to the blog.
These next photos are of a lovely little altered tin sent to me by Becky. The texture on the outside is wonderful and although you can't see it properly in the photo there are lots of gold highlights :) Becky has some wonderful art on her blog and has done a brilliant collograph tutorial - well worth a look.
The tin opens up to reveal a pink heart inside.
Mags sent me this birthday postcard as part of the Fibre Art Friends birthday swap. Its made from organza and lace and has Mags favourite symbols - curves! And these last three are from Ruth.
A handmade card with a very textural insert.
A postcard made with the same elements as in her January TIF challenge which you can read all about here on her blog. She had the patience to make about 30 of the little Celtic knots. Go see the challenge piece on Ruths blog, its fantastic.
