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 on ebay (I can't get the photo download to do the second one so I'll close and re-open typepad).

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 http://www.treicdesigns.com.
I have one card ready and have listed it on ebay - Monday's Child is Fair of Face =

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
There's a new challenge: altered postcards on
should be fun.

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.
