Sunday Part 2 - More Tyvek Postcards

Are you ready for lots of photos? - well here you are then... but please note the colour has gone on some of the pics - the work is mostly gold and bronze not the orange/red - when they are finished I will try to get better pics....

First up - the completed postcard for Donna and the other one which I am keeping.
Next the 'recipe' for more similar cards... Background first...
The background is tissue paper scrunched and bonded to calico, washed with coffee (if you know my work you know I use a lot of coffee!!) then highlighted with some gold foil and then finally stitched. Next the Tyvek squares.... Gold Painted tyvek
Melted....

and arranged on the background....


These were then heavily stitched (no puff paint on these gold ones).


They are now ready for beading tonight.
Then there are the bronze coloured ones......
Background - this background is the backing paper from coffee coloured bondaweb (those who paint bondaweb - I hope you keep the paper for use later??!!)

The bronze tyvek squares..
Puff paint....
Bronze Perfect Pearls and heavy stitching.....
also ready for beads.
Then some other bronze tyvek shapes on a similar background.....ready for beads.... and the next one...... Here you can see the blob of gold paint before spreading - this tyvek was more scrunched and less bubbly..What more?......... OK enough of the Tyvek for now (There are many many more on the go though!! - I may just show you the finished pieces and not the recipes so as not to bore you too much).
Then the question does gift wrap foil melt?
The answer - OH OH YES....... so what can I use these for?

And... finally for tonight..... A sandwich made from chiffon, enclosing snippets of stuff and puff paint and gold foil ...... heavily machine stitched, ready for some hand stitching and beads (one postcard and two ATC's - waste not etc....)

Some great ideas here for working with tyvek! Thanks for sharing them. I will have to have a go. I haven't tried using coffee yet - another one to try!

You really have been busy. They all look wonderful. I hope you used the proper precautions heating the tyvek, well ventilated area and/or respirator.
