Postcards

I had quite an art productive weekend with several finished projects to show for it. In addition to the purses in my previous post, I also completed a few postcards. A few weeks ago Jenny and I met at Terri's house for an afternoon of silk fusion. It was fun and easy. I made several small sheets with the intention of making postcards.
I really like the wispy edge of the silk fusion.
Purple Pebbles
Flow
This postcard was an experiment in just what can I make my ol' 1990s era Kenmore sewing machine do. It was definitely a task in hand eye coordination. One hand was on the width control while the other guided the card through in gentle waves. My Kenmore has a very limited number of stitches and a limited length and width, but I am please with the wavy zigzag it produced.
Current
For this card I just played around with a free motion stitch with swirls.
