photographs of the peacock are some I took myself here on Longboat Key, Florida.
My postcard for Joanna started as a challenge piece that I worked on for the Second Floor Challenge. If you would like to read about it from the very beginning, go to this post. The postcard was 1/4 of the whole piece I did for that challenge. The base was watercolor paper and it included water soluble briques and crayons, soft pastels, acrylic paints and embossed rubber stamping.
and applied it to the postcard withe matte medium
Individual alphabets were used to stamp my message with white ink -
I know Joanna likes this look!
Joanna and I had talked about this saying, it's a song actually -listen here
Then I created an envelope from a large piece of scrapbook paper.
I have a template from Green Sneakers that I've used for years . . .
Off the card went in the mail, across the pond to the garden of Eden.
Then, I received Joanna's card and mail art - wow!!
I love how she placed the postage stamp so it looks like the woman
is gazing at the queen. The striped washi tape from Gauche Alchemy is divine!
* Love-LOVe-lOvE-LovE THIS!!!! ; ^ )
