The Virginia Consortium of Quilters fabric post card swap is in full flight! Next month I’ll show you some of the variations on our theme of “Recycle.” Meanwhile, here’re a few of what I sent out, based on a British slogan from WWII – Mend and Make-do To Avoid Buying New.
The photos are miscellaneous cabinet card flea market finds. The base of the cards is a large piece of canvas sealed with gesso, then a couple Collage Podge layers, topped with stitched strips of fabric. The photos were transferred to vintage hankerchiefs using Transfer Artist Paper by Lesley Riley (http://www.transferartist.com/).
