Finally Ready!

I couldn't decide which to share with you first -- the postcards or the calendar. They are both printed and ready to mail (you can find postcards here and calendars here). This project started back in the spring as I began to work on some two dimensional fabric pieces. Creating images in fabric can be a challenge and it is fun to play with shapes and colors and stitching that is more for the way it looks than for its usefulness. 

Turning the large fabric images into square perfect prints on paper was the hardest part. My graphic design skills are sadly basic and it took me way to long to find places that could print the quality that I wanted at a reasonable price. I'll cut my dull story of the challenges short because I am really excited to be able to share my work in new and different forms. 

It is always scary to invest so much in a project without any certainty of whether anyone else likes it even a little bit. I hope you'll take a look and let me know what you think. Thanks!

  5. Anna,
    There is such detail in every appliqued leaf and vegetable. What a beautiful piece of art each one is on its own, let alone transformed into a fun postcard set or calendar. Wow, you are full of ideas! Can't wait to see your next creation!
