Last Postcard of 2007: Gossamer Curtain

December's postcard exchange colors were "on gossamer wings." I decided to do a gossamer curtain instead. I made the curtain fabric using water-soluble fabric and lots of different fibers all sewn with metallic thread. Here's the whole piece of fabric when it was done. You can see the fibers more on one side than the other.

Here are a couple of close-ups. This stuff does NOT photograph well!

I'm not sure how well I captured the theme, but I'm kinda partial to these cards, which look waaay better in person, as you can see through the fabric.
