Junk Mail redo

Once in a while you get a nice, heavyweight piece of junk mail you want to redo and send along to a friend.  Well, a friend sent me one and I decided to re-do it and send it back. (That friend might figure out who she is, so I better get this in the mail tomorrow) It is a tri-fold piece so their are 6 panels, perfect for play. I’ve also been taking a class from Mystele called visual linking over at Community Thrive and I have been practicing.  This proved to be fun.  Mostly done over magazine collage with finger painting, washi tape, stamping and black pen. Hope you enjoy.  Another friend is coming tomorrow for a nice long weekend visit so I’ll disappear for a bit, I need a break from everything about now.  See you all next week.

    I know I’ve been running behind, but this is ridiculous. Your junk mail turned into an incredible piece of art. All the pages were a joy to see, and using magazine images always makes me smile because they get recycled in a great way. I love the paint brushes you drew. They show what a great artist you are.

    Wow…I love these pages. What a fun technique. I’m heading over to check out Mystele’s class. She’s so talented…and so are you!

    Gosh, everything here is so colourful and – I don’t know how to say it – collagey, drawingy and painty? Love the figures you have drawn, the lady with the big frock, so sweet with her hat and handkerchief(?) in her hand, and the pair with one leg each, and they seem happy that way.

    wow – this is such a gorgeous piece. the ink drawings on top are so wonderful. I fell out of the blogosphere for a long while and I’m spending today getting re-inspired by all my blogging friends.
