I am SO lucky.... have such fun and artistic friends. Lucky that Beth and Leslie have been trading Mail Art me with me for several months now (has to be AT LEAST a year) - we are all enjoying what we receive from one another. Our last Mail Art theme was Silly Rhymes - you can see my post about it here.
Well this is what Beth created - what a great take on the Sea Shell rhyme! Acrylic inks, stamping on dress patterns, cutting pasting and other techniques as well....wonderful B!
And Leslie came up with her own silly rhyme which I just love...scrapped different colours of acrylic paint on to canvas paper then stamping with gesso. Inking and marker border and lettering. It is great. 
Then there is my pal Jo across the big pond. We are not as regular in our trades but when we do....
...holy Toledo I am lucky to get some great stuff. Our most recent theme was Vintage Circus. Both Jo's envelope above...
...and postcard inside are super cool. You can read more about them on her blog. I will post my interpretation once Jo receives it (it's in the mail Jo!!!)

A girl can never have too many artsy friends - and if you do, you are very lucky indeed! Enjoy. Jewels


  1. Love Jo's card! And I like the theme, too.

  2. These are all so so awesome, Jewels! I would love to do a little mail art with you, it has been a while for me. After I get the prayer flag swap sent, I will be ready to go and may just dsend you something!!! xo

  3. You have a great bunch to exchange art with! I am excited to learn to see that you will be giving a program at a guild meeting next spring! We have such talent in our own group!
