I have been following Monika's blog for a while and have always been fond of the beautiful thread work she does, as well as quilting, photography and lots of other great talents. On her sidebar she has a button for a postcard swap and that intrigued me so last month I asked to join .
You must make a postcard, sort of a super tiny mini quilt or needlework art piece and then send it just like you would a regular postcard.
Since I love meeting new people and especially people from other countries, I knew this was right up my alley. The cool thing, each month, is that there is a topic and it is limited to 4 participants. So I had to make 3 postcards and I should get three postcards in the mail in the next week.
Here are the three postcards I made.
The theme this month was either In the Garden or Signs of Spring.
Which do you think I chose?
I wanted to try different techniques, so I made three very different postcards.
The first one I used my photo from a few years ago as inspiration.
Here's the photo
and here's my postcard.
The second one I fussy cut and then embellished with thread.
