My second post on my recent Mail Art swap with Jo and Lenna.
Lenna is a very talented artist who lives in Florida. She sent me this lovely lady with her asemic writing in the background...
It came in a wonderful envelope (I just love opening my mailbox when art arrives - it really makes my day :) )
Since I had my retro thing going with Jo, I continued it with Lenna....I started using my geli plate to create the background (you can see me practice my writing on my under paper).
I am still getting the hang of it - I always get challenged with inadvertently getting muddy colours..
The image was from an IBM ad..
With a picture that can be interpreted however you like (I like "a career girl with attitude").
I carried over to the envelope as well - here is the front.
And here is the back - plane catching pace!!!!
These are all the envelopes from my arting weekend awhile back....Enjoy. Jewels
