Phew, it's scorching weather here in Engbearland isn't it? I've made the most of it by moving the desk doings to the garden, it's far too nice to be holed up inside, even for creative pawposes. Here I am, working on a couple of pieces of mail art for a swap we joined at UKS. Why don't you go and take a look? It's a no pressure, as and when kind of swap and it's great fun.
One of our swappees said she doesn't like cutesy or girly, so I'm making the above for her. The image was taken from a bargain book buy at The Works. The background was made from Gelli plate prints, with glass bead gel scraped through a mask for the stars. It has a wonderful texture to it.
The postcard itself was quite flimsy, so I had to eat an abundance of ice creams to facilitate a more sturdy backing. The things we crafters do for our art!!!
Ah, that's better, the reinforced backing means we trust it to go through the mail relatively unscathed.
Now, I think it's time to catch a few rays before finishing the second postcard.
With love from the bears
