wait a minute Mr Postman…

I seem to be getting less and less time to be creative of late, but as I had received my fab piece of mail art from Sarah, I needed to get on with the piece I was going to do for Shirley. I am happy to say it’s finally gone in the post today.

I really hope she likes it as I thoroughly enjoyed making it.  Lots of techniques  - collage, handmade patterned papers, stitching, oodles of wax.  Not sure the pictures do it justice, but I found it really tactile.  Perhaps Shirley will let you know what she thinks when she receives it, which fingers crossed should be tomorrow. I’m just hoping it survives with all that wax and this heat!  eek.

I have just received it through my letter box today.
It is absolutely gorgeous and I am definitely thrilled.
It is a perfect piece of art for my lounge and will be sitting on my mantelpiece permanently.
Thank you soooooooooo much Vicki.
