The postcards are starting to come in for My Land, My Paper. Three this week from the US, Spain and Canada. I have put pictures here.
At Yabbers we've decided to send each other postcards using the techniques we've done at the meetings. At our last meeting we made paste papers using a method Dineke taught at a recent workshop. You colour your paste as usual but you paste on lots of layers of paper and fabric, mine turned very red as you can see.
I've made two postcards, one I kept plain and the other I did gold embroidery on. At the last T'arts meeting Lesley Uren showed us how to couch gold onto fabric. The butterfly wing and coiled piece were some cheap gold wire and the other bits were what I brought home from Lesley's. Now to see if they go through the post!
I have been making some new journals lately including some from the leather scraps from Reverse Art and some small Chinese swords from a $2 shop.
Here are some exposed stitch bound books using an adaptation of a method I learned from George Matoulos many years ago.
