Baby love…

Once I started thinking the phrase, I couldn’t get the tune out of my head!! “Babies” is Louise’s chosen theme for Sunday Postcard Art and I had time to play this evening so I’m in…

I continued with Michelle’s strips of paper (and fabric) to create this postcard:

Baby love...

Random, grungey rippings, stickings and stitchings! They became grungey when I brayered over the whole piece with pale purple and light black ink! The base is half of a large postcard I got from the local library, most of which I covered with torn strips of paper and fabric, held in place with a touch of glue, then stamped and stitched. Lastly, doodled and written on…

I am taking Kelly Kilmer’s online Memories and Reflections class and have made my first book cover – just the basic shell, ribbon closure and first part of the cover. At no time did I feel nervous or concerned that I might do something wrong. It was all very simple and so easy to follow that I know if I do make any boo-boos, I can simply cover them up and no-one will know (unless I tell them, or you!). That’s very cool collaging – totally reassuring and I LOVE that! ***

  19. Great to see a fabric piece in a postcard – it reminds me very much of a few ATC’s I have traded with Ruth Rae…are you familiar with her work?
