Asemic Writing with Lenna

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


  1. Wonderful to visit both mine and yours again, thanks jewels ;) I really struggled with the idea of the asemic writing, but once I did it of course I wondered why?? It was fun! I cherish your card & envelope!

  2. I really enjoy seeing your designs, I love what you produce :o))
    Have a good week ahead {{Hugs}} x

  3. I had to look up the definition of asemic writing and I believe my normal handwriting would quality. LOL Your artsy mail is fabulous and would be perfect for National Letter Writing Month of April...which I participate in each year with a large FaceBook group. Those Gelli plates are quite the challenge for me as messy is not my favorite craft medium. Creative Artsy Bliss...

  4. It's so wonderful to see yours and Lenna's part of the 'We {heart} Mail Art' swap :) You seem to have a never ending supply of supercool retro images, lol!

    I have to think very carefully about the order I use my colours when Gelli-ing - and yes, mud is always a wrong decision away!


  5. You 3 look like you're having a good time with all the swaps. Fun to see.
