My June Calendar Girl Postcard

Hopefully pride won't come before a fall but I made my June postcard for the Calendar Girl swap yesterday - on the first of June!! That is a record for me. below is the calendar page we were to use as an inspiration - it was chosen by Sharon. It positively screamed at me - use your sheers - do lots of layering. So I did. And had a lot of fun doing it. Now I want to play some more with sheers! The first picture above is a photo and the second one is a scan. The photo shows up the glittery organza fabrics a bit more but the scan is truer colour-wise!.And then today the postman delivered my comp copy of Art Quilting Studio (I should not have doubted Stampington!) so tonight I will be losing myself in its pages!

This morning we had a glorious sunrise and as I haven't shared any early morning photos for ages, I thought I would show you this series from over my east facing backyard fence. Love the way the moon shows up in one of them!

Stunning sunrise photo's - I think I would 'do' mornings if I had those colours to drool over.

Congratulations on the publication - and I do like your fabric postcard.

Fantastic fabric postcard Debbi...I have recently been introduced the work of Ton Schulten (probably spelt that wrong) and LOVE his art. What a surprise to visit you blog and see the inspiration for your postcard.

What amazing sunrises you have Deb...looks like a tropical paradise.

Mmmm .... another magazine I think I "need".

Hi Debbi,
I think your postcard is great...love that you used sheers to get the right affect, it looks so much like the real challenge picture, but still has your style about it...I am amazed!......and thanks for sharing your backyard sunrise, what a treat to be able to see that from your house...the colour you capture is so rich and beautiful in your photos... lovely...xx
