Isn’t it weird: We do so many forms of colaage in in fabric art, using applique and embellishing (amongst other things), but label it COLLAGE and I go into a blue funk.
These cards are my first attempts ever at a “dedicated collage postcard” and compared with the ones I have received, I have failed dismally.
Needless to say, I have now ordered a book to give me some guidance.it should arrive in the next day or so, and then, maybe then I can rectify my mistakes.
I should have added that the base/background was from previously constructed
“paper fabric” and the first three cards were parts “lifted” from old DESIGN Graphics magazines featuring Ileana Fro’meta, a Carrribean painter.
The orange wigged girl is celebrating the EKKA ( the annual Brisbane Ag Show) or what I guess my American friends would call their State Fair.
Cards # 5 and 6 also were made with the help of another old DESIGN Graphics mag
Card #7 : No real theme.
