April fabric post card

.flickr-photo { border: solid 2px #000000; }.flickr-yourcomment { }.flickr-frame { text-align: left; padding: 3px; }.flickr-caption { font-size: 0.8em; margin-top: 0px; }

card, originally uploaded by wordnerd411.

Mixed media, machine embroidery using commercial and hand-dyed fabrics, mulberry paper and snipped up pieces of recycled foil packaging.

Don’t worry, I carefully only used foil that had not been in contact with the contents of the packet! The brown-looking strips are really orange but the scan made them look much darker than I see them.

On flickr the image is rotated to the left and makes me think of a comet — at least a bigger piece with a less rectangular ‘tail’ could be a comet. And who is to say that somewhere in space the sky doesn’t look orange?
