October Calendar Girls Postcard

This months Calendar was chosen by Carol M and it one by Alphonse Mucha.
I struggled a bit with this one because I am not arty enough to be able to translate the lovely lady or the ugly beast into a postcard so I focused on the circle behind the lady and the leaves in the bottom left hand corner.




I chose a hand dyed green fabric as the background and the circle was stitched on a piece of rusted fabric using four different coloured threads then vliesofixed on to the background .
The leaves were made on the embellisher from felt and scrim.
I attached them by machine and added a paper flower with a yellow button in the centre.
My swap partner is Val and I hope she will like it.

It is a difficult one, but then again there are lots of possibilities. You have found a great interpretation.

Heather said...

I know how you feel Doreen - it's a hard one to interpret. I love what you have done. It's so simple but very stylish.

Janet said...

You did great with your interpretation....I love Mucha's artwork.

It's good Doreen, I would certainly struggle with that one.
