We had another one around 2:13 a.m. The USGS site says it was a 3.6 and located in the same area north of us around Mt. Carmel. It has been awhile since our last one; I believe it was on May 25th. It is very humid and hot here this morning.
…so I went to work yesterday making a postcard to trade with Susan Lenz. Have you ever created something…and then, afterwards, you turned it a different way….and you like it better!? That’s what happened here. I created the postcard like this…
…but I like it much better like this…!
Since I am now a retailer of Fast2Fuse, I decided that I should try it out. What great stuff…fusible on both sides…nice and stiff…great for postcards.
And one other thing…I like to use sheers for layering in my work. I love using painted fusible web to add a bit of color with some transparency. The other thing great about this is I put some loose threads on top of the postcard and the threads stick to the fusible web when heated.
Thanks to Patty Van Huis-Cox’s blog, I found my way over to another blog by Susan Lenz. Susan has a bunch of ATC’s and postcards that she is trading for. After looking them over for a couple of days I plunged in and picked one here. My only problem now is….what will I send her? She is going to be displaying these at a South Carolina gallery in January 2009. Gotta get to work!
