Lenna is running a
Mail Art Postcard Swap
Creative Swaps Blog site.
I really enjoy Lenna's swaps.
They are very well organised and she prepares
superb information booklets ensuring you
know exactly what to do and what is expected.
The standard of these swaps, as a result,
is always very high.
For this swap the theme is 'A Summer Day'.
I created 4 identical postcards
(3 for swapping, 1 as a gift for Lenna)
with a blended paper background, which I gessoed,
coloured with spritz spray and
Distress Stain and then rubber stamped
with the vintage butterfly image.
The little girl is a gel medium transfer.
a little child
for one bright
is by Lewis Carroll.
Weren't summers always long, hot and sunny
when we were children?
(unlike the summers we have now, grrrrr!).
