Postcards from Maureen


I finally managed some postcards over the weekend:

The first two were (hand) needle felted as I watched TV as the Wallabies lost the Bledisloe Cup to the NZ All Blacks.

I n/f the tomato red wool on a foam block,cut them to 6by4 inch size,mounted them on Timtex and further embellished the pieces with n/f abstract shapes featuring wool and “Glitz” mohair.

The next three I developed using Australiana themed fabrics and Australian stamps.
Maybe they won’t appeal to some people,but my idea was to give a taste of Australia to my overseas friends.

  1. These postcards are gorgeous. I love them all.

  2. Thanks Carol…….I’ve been feeling a bit “blah” creatively lately,and was worried that the recipients thought they weren’t “arty” enough.

  3. I love the Australiana ones they are great.

  4. Isn’t that what postcards are supposed to be about? the flavor of the place they come from? I think they’re wonderful!
