This isn't the greatest picture. I used my cell phone to take the picture. I couldn't find the batteries for the digital camera. I wanted to host another thread sketching fabric postcard swap but I wanted to have a specific theme. I googled fabric postcards and looked at the images of other peoples fabric postcards for inspiration. I don't remember what the fabric postcard looked like that inspired the 4 elements idea. It took some thinking on my part to try to create something that looked like a picture and just wasn't a bunch of symbols. I sketched the idea out on paper before tackling the actual thread sketching.
