Post Cards from Fundy #3 Arcadians


The 3rd post card is one from the Arcadians who settled in the Bay of Fundy area from the early 17th century.
Here is the 'stamp' in progress showing a typical house with animal shelter attached and dykes the people made. 

The Arcadians brought with them a high level of textile skills so their garments were made from a variety of sophisticated materials: fulled, felted, woven, dyed wools; bleached linens; soft, adorned leathers; fine lace; woven ribbons.
I have made decisions about which fabrics I will work with and arranged them by colour scheme, value scale and intensity.

Assembly of the post card. 

Auditioning different materials for the printed lines found on post cards.
