After the winter themed envelopes swap, I am participating to a new swap with the subject "Love". I must admit that this is not my preferred subject for mail art!
I had quite some tough times to find ideas, and I decided to have a different approach than usual. I used some digital scrap booking kits to produce my envelopes. These kits contain papers and embellishments. All I needed to produce my five envies.
I have been reading a lot these days about art journals. I have also watched a lot of tutorials on You Tube. So I decided to start my own journal. But of course, as I am more at ease in front of a computer, this will be a digital art journal. Each page will be a digital image created on computer. Then I will print each page in the form of a postcard. I will keep one for me, and I will send one to friends and contacts. I will share with you page after page. The full art journal will be displayed on the page here (link also available on the right).
The first page is the cover. I wanted to use "Dream" as the title of my journal. Here is what I came out with. I am not completly satisfied by the result. I wanted to have the word "dream" loking more like a cloud. Well, I'm in the learning phase !
In sepetmber I sent to Eric Bensidon a participation to his call (see here the details). In return, Eric sent me the documemtation of his call, and a new invitation to another project. I need to work on this one now!
The January challenge of Mail A Smile was about Love. I created this envelope using a rubber stamp from La La Land that I stamped, scanned and colored digitally. I quite like the result, even if the coloring is probably a bit simple.
Misu, one of the hosts of Mail A Smile project, sent me this nice envelope and card. I love envelopes made from cartoons, I love the Peanuts, you can imagin how I was happy to get this cover with the Peanut in Hungarian !
The text on the card means "I am an happy cow" (you see how fluent I am in Hungarian ;-) ?)
During my holidays (did I mention that in January I spent three fabulous weeks in Sydney, Australia ?) Christophe Blaise sent me two nice items.
First an envelope made from a magazine page folded in a very clever way (so clever that I could not fold it back in the same way). The envelope contained an ATC for my project "One word, one ATC" (see link on the right).
Then he sent me this very very nice envelope with this cute drawing. The joke is impossible to translate in English, sorry. I just LOVE the cute from on the head of the dog.
