Fabric postcards

I’m taking part in a fabric postcard swap at the moment (see
art2mail: mailable fabric postcards for more details).

This is one of them I made – I painted calico with acrylic paints, layered it with voile and then sewed house shapes on with more calico. I thought the voile on top of the painted fabric made it look like pavements in the rain, reflecting and distorting the colours.

I learnt the technique of layering voile at an embroidery course with Virginia Hole at our local quilt shop, Busy Bees.
