For some time I have admired Jewels' artwork,
(pop over to her blog, Just Tickety-Boo,
to see what I mean)
and recently suggested that we did a 1:1 swap.
We settled on a postcard with the theme of 'hats'
and that we would pop it in a Mail Art envelope.
A while back Bad Penny sent me some old knitting patterns
that had been donated to her charity shop.
Amazingly I found them in my ever increasing
mountainous stash pile
and really liked this image of the happy young boy
wearing a balaclava.
I can't imagine what he's looking so happy about
wearing that horrid itchy, scratchy thing
(I speak from experience).
They must have said,
"Look happy and you can take it off quicker."
At least his balaclava has a 'fun' bobble.
I added some nasty itchy, scratchy wool/string to give
an idea of what it would be made of.
I didn't go with a 'hats' theme
for my Mail Art.
I had found this picture of the
and knew I wanted to send him to the USA!
My non-arty friend Lyndsey said it was rude.
I didn't intend to shock
(that would be an added bonus).
I know Jewels' interpretation of our theme
is on its way to the UK.
I'll show you when it arrives.
