January Postcards

Happy New year to everyone. Hope yours has been fun so far. I’ve been playing with lots of materials, making postcards. Here’s a few :

First is my postacrd for my new group on the theme of celebration. I was thinking about the colours of fireworks while making this one.

Next we have:

Foil and Machine
A bit of play with foil, hand dyed silk and machine embroidery. And lastly I was playing with Lamifix – a new laminated plastic coating. Basically its a superior version of the old sheet protector collage. Sheet protectors are cheap but tend to delaminate on one so I find the lamifix gives me a better seal and stays sealed!! Here they are:

Also been playing with puff paint, tyvek and some transfer crayons. Only broke one machine needle while playing around – not too bad an effort. Then if I remember to put the jeans needle in next time it won’t break in the first place!!
