Shakespeare Mail Art

I'm sitting here typing and watching Jeopardy and guess what the topic is for the final clue - Shakespeare's Plays (name the 2 plays whose title repeats a word - answer below). How funny! My friend Fiddlesnips Jo and I exchange Mail Art from time to time and we just completed a swap on the theme of Shakespeare!
I came back from vacation and Jo's was in the stack of mail that had been held for us. I would have been happy with the envelope on its own - its just lovely.
But her postcard was exceptional as well - wonderful treatment of Hamlet. She writes about how she made it on her blog here.
I also had fun with this theme - here is my envelope front (with the play give away)...
...and back.
I wanted to use a quote from Julius Ceasar and some how fit in a retro image - so this is my "contemporary" Goddess stating "It was all Greek to me !"). I think I was influenced by the current Euro crisis. Paper collage enhanced with inks and colour markers (for that Mediterranean feel).

Enjoy, Jewels.

  1. Both your art and Jo's is all so excellent! I could eat it right up, just my cup of tea. Thanks for sharing it all, jewels!
