that is acrylic paint on the canvas using a pour technique, and then I covered it with resin, for the shine.

Jutta, received my package today. The bag was such a ray of sunshine. I'm trying to crochet but I can't get the second row to go. Maybe someday I'll be close to your skill. Can't get the photo to attach. But it is beautiful.

Dearest Patsy/Dirt Duchess!! My deepest apologies for not posting this 3 days ago. Please forgive me. I had to say good bye to 3 different immediate family members and my days were tough. I received my awesome mail art from you and GENUINELY cherish it! I loved the little mixed media triptych and the personal card of who you were was so delightful I smiled hugely! I live ALL the ephemera that went with the package! You are a HUGE inspiration to me and I thank you greatly for bringing a lot of sunshine to an otherwise gloomy week! Hugs- Dianna/suny58

Hi April, so glad you like your mail art that I made for you. The little pouch is called a storage pod, they are fun to make and you can just use them for about anything. Mail art is just fun, enjoy.

Farmgirl Hugs & May all your Wishes come true.

So glad it arrived. The key to crochet is getting the turns just right so you don't loose stitches. There are some fabulous youtube videos on crochet. Have a fun summer and stay creative! :)

Aimee. I love my wonderful mail art. the mug is so cute and the pillow will be well used I also love the tissue paper that you wrapped them in. I think I will be finding a use for it.

I owe a huge apology to my secret sender, April, for delaying so long in even letting you know your package arrived safely!



Thank you so much! I just adore art books, and yours is not only creative but obviously packed with a lot of time and thought. My 2-yr-old granddaughter enjoyed going through the pockets, and insisted on a cup of tea as well. I've already decided that in a couple of years the fairy locket will be hers, and I look forward to helping her tuck wishes inside it! I'm looking forward to sampling your potato salad recipe too, thank you!

My apologies to all for my delay. As I read through the earlier posts, I became aware just how hard and busy life can be for all of us. So nice to have a creative outlet, and connection with good people.

Happy summer to all!

Also, my poor partner on the other end, I finally got my act together and put YOUR mail art in the mail today. SO SO SORRY I'm so late!! I think I'd better take a month off to regroup my priorities!

I am glad the mug arrived in tact. The mail lady demonstrated to me how even "fragile" packages get dropped a certain distance. I had such fun doing the sun printing. I can't wait to do more!
Hugs!

Aimee! I thought that was a sunprint, but didnt want to ask and be wrong! I'm so impressed that you used that method (so on top of MJF!) but also at how well it turned out! You must really be happy about that!

Perfect use of the June theme :-)

Sara,
Thanks for noticing the sun print! It was the 2nd try! I have a cute little blue piece of cotton for the first, as I stupidly hung it on the line to dry and (NOTE TO SELF) that is why it is a sun print, the sun outside over exposed and took the design away! Live and learn. I too, took July off to re-group (I've got lots of Birthdays this month). But, I'll be back in August!
Best to all,
A

Oh good, Sherry! You are so sweet to let me know they made it, so,so late! Naw, I picked up the cute little metal flowers at JoAnn's and just decoupaged them. I hope they bring you cheer!
