Fiber Postcards

Today was a busy but fun day at my Fibervision meeting. We unveiled our Revisioned Challenge pieces. All were wonderful, some amazing. Mine isn't quite finished yet . . . so I'll post a photo when it is done. We prepared our boutique items and fiber pieces for the Elverhoj Museum. Here are 4 of the 28 postcards I will have for sale.This one was made by discharging the fabric with bleach. Then red foil was added to the design.The background was sun-printed and stamped. Silk flowers and leaves were stitched on and a little foil was added to the flower center.This piece was transferred from a photo of a rock wall. The cracks are heavily stitched for a three dimensional effect.The background was sun-printed, then stitching and foil was added.

If you are planning a trip to central California (Solvang, Danish capital of America), stop in to see this exhibit. It is called "Color & Cloth Redefining a Traditional Art Form". It is going to be amazing, if I do say so myself. I have two pieces on exhibit. I think there are around 50 pieces. Our reception is on Friday, November 16 from 5 - 7 pm and we have a panel discussion with the artists on January 6th. Hope some of you can make it!

They all look great Judy, but especially like the rock wall - it looks kinda 3D.

I agree with Dianne that they all are wonderful...buy I think my favorite is the geranium one. Lovely!

I had the pleasure of seeing Judy's work for the show up close-- it is textural, colorful, and interesting!

Love these postcards, too! The rocks are really cool!

Beautiful beautiful cards Judy, and all so different. What glue did you use for the foiling? Val
