This was done on hand dyed fabric. I did some fabric weaving, beading, and yarns for the leafy part of the tree. The trunk was thread painted. I also did some embroidery on this piece.

This was done from a photo of Albert Einstein. I manipulated it in photoshop until just the outline of the photo appeared then printed it on paper. Then I traced the outlines on fabric and embroidered it. I wrote E=MC2 and "Its All Relative" with pencil then embroidered over my pencil lines. When finished I stretched it around canvas, stapled it to the back, added a backing to cover the staples and attached a wire hanger.
It has been a while since I posted anything on my blog. Let's just say life has been busy. I made these fabric postcards which were a lot of fun and quick to do. Well, quicker than most things I do. Since my husband is a yoga instructor I thought I would make some Christmas fabric postcards with a yoga theme. I first made the templates and used those to cut out the shapes. I used fast2fuse to adhere the fronts and back then sewed around the edges with a zigzag stitch. The cards are 4x6 inches. You can write on the back with any pen and they can be mailed. They can also be given as a small gift. Again I say I am not a photographer so please keep that in mind when you view the cards. I believe you can click on the pictures to enlarge and they may come out brighter.
