Some postcards -- Outgoing for MMSA swaps

Scavenger hunt--10 items beginning with the letter S  Went into the mail on Monday.
This was difficult, had to look in many places for these. It's amazing the number of things that DON'T begin with the letter S.
 

Second group--Brown and Blue--I really love these , so dark and dramatic!

Take a Word--Bird

 
I've never seen the TV show, Portlandia, but I know people who live there, and understand that art really imitates life there.  I do remember hearing about several episodes featuring the expression, " put a bird on it!"  So, I did.
All elements from beedesigns "are you crazy" kit.

SPA-- Still Life


Made with elements from Deviant Scrap kits from MVE, Holliewood, Rucola, Finecrafted designs, and from Marisa and RDH Designs.

Some new mail art postcards

Been playing with packing tape and my gelli plate.  It's a great way to clean it off if the paint has dried, and the transparent layers are great for texture and depth. I layered them on top of collaged pieces



 
I also played with my baby sewing machine and stiched the edges down.  I stitched these up while I was at it.

SPA--Down on the Farm


How ya gonna keep 'em down on the farm
After they've seen Paree'
How ya gonna keep 'em away from Broadway
Jazzin around and paintin' the town
How ya gonna keep 'em away from harm, that's a mystery
They'll never want to see a rake or plow
And who the deuce can parleyvous a cow?
How ya gonna keep 'em down on the farm
After they've seen Paree'
 
Chickens and hats from Google Images.  Background and textures from Rucola Designs

A page from Journal 52--a Love Letter

 
I'm not much of a writer, but...words of love are sometimes so easy to express.
Gelli pront, paper hearts cut from printed paper, fabulous red handmade paper (I think it's paper) that's full oh holes and long fibers, and coffee filters, that are sprinkled with baking soda, sprayed with vinegar and dripped on with food coloring
