When Colorful Art Girl posted the theme for March’s Postcard Challenge, “Words To Live By,” this idea jumped into the front of my mind and wouldn’t leave until I had completed the piece. I rarely work on a white background, so I thought I’d give it a go – and now I remember why I rarely work on a white background: It’s rather unforgiving of stitching mistakes. However, this is my year of Thinking Outside The Box, so I decided to persevere and ignore the little holes left by ripped-out stitches.
Everything is fused, especially the words, which were printed on fabric and cut out using tweezers to hold them (I was determined).
I was tickled with the result; I’d love to expand the idea to a larger piece and add embellishments to it – beads or hand embroidery, maybe. I’m finding these postcards to be wonderful springboards to new and different projects.
Visit here if you’d like to join the challenge! And, as always, thank you for being out there -- it's wonderful to feel connected to such a fabulous group of kindred souls.
