Here are some postcards for January. The theme is bird/yellow. I decided to do a theme of "exotic" birds (probably not really exotic but the names sound exotic). I used fabric and batting and free-motion-stitched the background, then added strips of fabric and some yarn.
I printed some photos of birds from the internet after trying to manipulate the images since my printer is out of red ink right now - that's why the birds all look green. And printed out the words and used matte gel medium to paste the paper to the fabric. It works beautifully and when it dries, it doesn't look like there's any adhesive on there at all. It just looks like the paper is somehow magically attached to the fabric.
