I recently swapped a Postcard and Mail Art
with her chosen theme of 'Shakespeare'.
Her take on the theme arrived safely
and I posted about it
Mine has arrived with Jewels in the USA
so I can show it to you now :o)
I used a page of playscript from Hamlet,
onto which I transferred an image of a skull.
I was so pleased how the transfer turned out that it
was quite difficult to put anything on top of it!
The image of the man is an actor (and I forgot to
write down his name, grrrrr) playing the part of
Hamlet. The quote is one of Shakespeare's
most famous quotes,
"Alas, poor Yorick! I knew him, Horatio......"
and I stuck it to some of the leatherette book cover.
I aged the edges with charcoal and white gesso.
The Mail Art.......
All the elements for the Mail Art came from
an old book, bought for next to nothing from a
charity shop because it was falling apart.
I'm so glad the postal system coped with the
address being written in a Shakespearian font!
Another fun swap, thank you Jewels :o)
