Another parcel arrived today. Thank you Jacqueline for a wonderful mix of found papers and the little gems from nature. The warm colours are just perfect for our Australian autumn here and the vintage lady all dressed up in her Sunday best…she is just gorgeous and so, special.
Thank you heaps Rachel ! Today I received your 2 nice surprises in the mail. I love everything and was amazed that both envelopes arrived together.
Lots of interesting bits and baubles to play with and the added personal note made me smile:)
Collage with layers of colour, whimsy and movement.
This delightful creation is already inside my latest Art Almanac mag.
The paper ephemera project has made me realize how much I miss snail mail and connecting with other creatives . It’s so much fun and brightens my day, so thank you very much Rachel and everyone else in the group x.
Thank you Adrienne! I got your envelope today. I love all the vintage papers you sent and the red envelope with the large year of the horse stamp is just gorgeous. An open cheque too:) Thank you again!
