Here is another mail art envelope for a swap on swap-bot. Making these is just so much fun! I disguised the address on the scan as I thought the recipient might not like to see her address publicly displayed on my blog... Main image Lisa's Altered Art altered by me. Most other bits from Efies.blogspot.com
I received two deco booklets to do pages for so here is the second page I did. This ones theme was vintage travel. The booklet has been travelling the world since March 2008. I hope it reaches its destination soon. Main image is from Eliza's tintypes altered by me. Most other bits are from Efies blog. French text from a gift of Land of Nod studios.
Today I received two Deco books from one of my Flickr friends. I only recently found out about decos (there are just so many things to discover in the art world out there). The theme of the first one was "Glamour Girls". I decided to use my digital card I made for the SPA challenge on Sunday as my central image as it seemed to suit the theme just perfectly. Anyway, here is my page.
I would love to start a deco myself now. If anyone is interested, please leave a comment.
The theme at Sunday Postcards is "No Business Like Show Business". I created a digital collage.

I have completely fallen in love with creating mail art envelopes. All these things were created for various swaps on swap bot. Many of the elements came from the amazing Effi who provides enless images for absolutely free. You can find her here
The new theme at the three Ms is "legs". I was pretty sure I was going to do stripy legs of some sort, but in the end I created this skinny. I love those beautiful innocent legs... I could not scan it because of the roses at the top and unfortunately the photgraph did not turn out very well and is rather darker than the actual piece. The image is from a William Bouguereau CD I got from Lanargirl.com
Zetti style skinny created for a swap on Swap-Bot. Most of the collage elements are from a brilliant free sheet created by Terri Kahr from Pringle Hill Studios. Thank you Terri for this wonderful sheet! You can find it here
This is the second page I have done in my special journal for Pam Carriker's Journalling 365 workshop. The symbolic self portrait was done in conte creayon, you create the highlights with a kneadable eraser. I have never used a conte crayon before in my life and it is quite different from any other medium I have worked with before. The whole process took me well out of my comfort zone but is well worth exploring further. Pam is a brilliant teacher!
Just got a whole lot of new stamps from a brilliant place called the Stamp Smith. This is the image that I first saw on Docraft and really liked. I asked the friend who has used it in an ATC, where she got it. Well she borrowed it from a friend who got it from ebay as a one off. But.... it had a title. I googled the title, and hey presto found the site. They have great stamps and offer a really friendly fast service. I highly recommend them!
