aLTERED Postcards 2

Beginnings This PC was hard to scan, fiddled with it but had to give up - the colours are much nicer in reality.

aLTERED Postcards

I am a member of a new Ebay group called Altered Postcard Art (APCA) and the first altered postcards are listed. Have a look, you might like to join! Here are my most recent Cameraboyon ebay (I can't get the photo download to do the second one so I'll close and re-open typepad).

A card for a friend

I made a birthday card for Kari (Inkytinker's Splats) but managed to send it a day early -- well it's better than a day late isn't it?Karisbday She calls me 'Queen of Lace' but there isn't even a hint of lace on this card - must be slipping!

It's been hectic

I've had a lovely week with family staying with me and 1-year old baby Edoardo. We celebrated my birthday 'en famille' and I got great presents. DD1 bought me a beautiful vintage quilt, DD2 and DD3 got me art DVDs which are on their way from USA, and my mother gave me a nice cheque which will be buying me more art supplies. I had just received Traci Bautista's book 'Collage Unleashed' and saw that she has a Yahoo group with the same name, and when I looked at her website found her DVD taken at one of her workshops - looks really good. If you go to her site, you'll see a video

I have one card ready and have listed it on ebay - Monday's Child is Fair of Face =Mondayschild_1

Catching up and new cards

Sally and I were invited to Marysia's for dinner and chat yesterday and a great meal and wine of course. She showed us her art room, like Aladdin's cave, organized and messy all at the same time!! It does me a power of good to see someone else's stash, it's like I'm given permission to buy more things for art and not feel guilty.

Now, onto some new art cards I made and listed on ebay Lillibet Noboundaries

There's a new challenge: altered postcards on

should be fun.

It's amazing how sometimes, without much tinkering, artwork comes together - and then sometimes it can take ages, which is what happened today. Anyway, I've finished the collage 'Little Angel' Littleangel and it's here on Ebay

I'm on a roll!

Another ACEO ready - no stitching this time, just lots of layers. This card has some fabric paper I made following an article in Cloth, Paper, Scissors -- it was good fun to make and gives instant gratification! It's here on ebay - Schokolade

Fabric Collage

Here's my latest fabric collage - HER SPECIAL DAY - a little hand stitching and some machine work, the colours are all in a sepia tone and it works really well. My daughter brought me lovely old beads from Morocco and I've used some here. The dangly is old gold colour and suits the piece, I think. It's here on etsy. Bride2

New Art Card

I've made a little art card using fabric and paper. It measures 4.5 x 6.5" so much larger than an ATC. It's here on ebay - and more to come later - hope you'll have a peek!Hugs
