Inspiration comes from the darndest places. My friend Jenny Lyon pays attention to paper products and that’s where I found the design used here. Who knew that a box of tissues could fire the imagination?
Even simplified, this design has plenty of detail. I tried new lighting to take this photograph and had some success, but not complete. After many attempts, I put this piece on the floor and had better results. The small white floral design on the fabric shows best at the right edge where the fabric extends beyond the fast2fuse. Metallic-wrapped white thread was used to stitch the floral design. The seed beads in the center of the flowers are #8 pearl finish; outer seed beads are #11 in pearl, clear, white and amber. It measures 5″ x 7″ now and will be trimmed to 4″ x 6″ when I’m ready to attach the address on the opposite side. As with the other postcards in this series, the edge finish will be determined when they are trimmed to size.
