Yet another set of shibori sunrise postcards! I'm calling these August to represent the oppressive heat of this month around here. August actually looks a lot more pleasant in these cards than in the reality of July and August in Virginia. I have two different shibori patterns to go with my orange sky bits. So, you're wondering what determines the orientation. That's all about the size of the sky bit that I have. I had some that were 4" wide and some that were 6" wide. These cards always start with the sky and then I dig around for a shibori fabric to pair with. So the sky piece determines the orientation and the depth of the ocean.
I'm trying to do a little something different for the sky in each of these Shibori sea postcards. For these I found the sparkly sheer fabric that's probably used in things like dance costumes. I fused some Mistyfuse on the back and then cut out some clouds to fuse to the cards.
A little metallic thread was perfect to stitch down the clouds. There are a total of 6 cards in this set. I only have one more set to make (as of today) but they are so much fun with them that you shouldn't be surprised if you see even more of them.
I'm Vicki Welsh and I've been making things as long as I can remember. I used to be a garment maker but transitioned to quilts about 20 years ago. Currently I'm into fabric dyeing, quilting, Zentangle, fabric postcards, fused glass and mosaic. I document my adventures here.
