Sharon Walworth from USA
(who doesn't have a blog. Yet!)
and I recently swapped postcards and
accompanying Mail Art with the theme of
Now, I don't need much of an excuse
to get my Gelli Plate out, so this was
great fun for me.
This is the postcard I made using a
colour combo of pink and orange
that I really like.....
black gel pen (too harsh),
white gel pen (to calm
down the black gel pen),
and computer generated
'dymo' font for the sentiment.
This is the accompanying Mail Art......
....onto which I rubber stamped and doodled.
I used the same 'dymo' font
for Sharon's address.
Sharon's brand new Gelli Plate was brought
out of its pristine packaging especially for
this swap and, I think she would agree, she
was rather nervous before getting started.
However, she really shouldn't have been!
Look at this beauty....
|(Postcard on top of the accompanying Mail Art)|
She chose a great colour combo,
which is very unusual.
I think you may be able to tell that
Sharon's first passion is fabric;
I love all the stitching, textures, layers
and the super composition.
The back is as interesting as the front,
and Sharon's label made me smile because
mine was sent out late too! Thankfully, we're
both very laid back about deadlines or
the swaps between us wouldn't work.
Sharon always comes up with
superb themes for our swaps.
The next one we've planned is great fun;
I'm at the thinking stage with it but I'll be
starting very soon..........
