Really? How cool is that?
As most people know that have read this blog for a while, I have a special fondness for textile arts such as sewing, knitting, crocheting and embroidery for example. These are all skills that I greatly admire but personally have absolutely no talent at.
When I came across today's shop, I was instantly intrigued and after a little exploring, I knew I had to share Linda's beautiful artwork with all my readers.
SewUpscale on Etsy is a little shop ran by Linda Johnson that is filled with quilted postcards. Little postcard sized pieces of quilted artistry in the form of lovely landscapes and other nature prints put to life through fabric and stitch.
Linda specializes in unique landscapes and nature visages and her shop has a variety of different and unique pieces to browse through from mountain vistas to night skies, ocean views and more.
This type of artwork is labor intensive with each piece and color individually cut out and pieced together through quilting methods then quilted. Linda uses a variety of types of fabric in order to give the pieces texture and depth and the thread, as well, adds its own individual touches throughout each piece.
These postcards can be sent in the mail and when received the postcard can then be framed as artwork and kept forever. These wonderfully artistic pieces can be used to bring a smile or tell someone you care as well as used as a tag for a gift or many other ideas and creative possibilities. And, Linda also accepts custom orders! That means you could have one made up special just for a loved one or for artwork for your own wall.
