The theme chosen by Jane is
and this is the postcard I created
The Archbishop I chose to use is Thomas Cranmer,
who was Archbishop during the reign of Henry VIII and was largely responsible for Henry's divorce from Catherine of Aragon and his subsequent split from the
Roman Catholic Church.
The quote is, strangely, a favourite in a
varied repertoire of DH Grant.
He learnt it at school and often trots it out should the
subject of water arise.
Please note that for extra dramatic effect while quoting he uses the voice of the teacher.
The Archbishop's image is another gel medium transfer (I know I'm rather addicted to them at the moment), but it came out SO well that I could have just stuck
on his picture instead.
It would have been much less messy.
You can't see from the scan, but I gave him several coats of glossy varnish, to give him a 'wet look'.
From another Jane I received this
'Yee Ha! Ride 'em Cowboy'
Those high kickin' gals are gel medium transfers
(see, it isn't just me!)
and Jane explained to me that the cowboy music score
("I'm a poor lonesome cowboy")
belonged to her granny.
A sweet personal touch.
I love the layering of the vintage comic book cowboy
images and the gorgeous colours.
Jane also enclosed this facsimile of a
vintage cardboard toy that she owns.
The cowboy is sitting on a pencil stub cleverly attached
at the back, and with strategic placement of Blue Tack
he rocks gently giving the effect that he is riding his horse.
Clever stuff, huh?
Thank you, Jane!
Now I've really got to put my thinking face on
and come up with an idea for Gina whose chosen theme is
'Concealment and Revelation.'
