Landscape Postcards

Two books have perked up my interest in fiber landscapes along with working on my larger landscape
Luminous Landscapes had techniques for using paints to achieve a desire look and Nature's Studio uses fabric prints and manipulation to express nature.
As I work on my larger landscape I have also been creating smaller landscapes. On these postcards, I tried to made careful consideration on fabric color and print as well as placement and size to create a simple yet effective design. I think the first one is a hit and the second is a bit of a miss. On the first one, I like how the blue batik, gives the sky a stormy look.

For some reason I have always thought that quilted landscapes work best in a small scale.
Keep working small and fast and you will be amazed at what pops out!!!

I like your approach to the PC ladnscapes. My next PC challenge will involve a landscape and these give me some good ideas!

In the top photo, the very top fabric way over on the right side, that coloring and shape makes me think of a tree just add the trunk over on the right edge?

great postcards - I am definitely going to try something like that. I must remember to bookmark this so I can refer back to you when I show my attempts!
