snail mail

wrote a letter on the back of a painted manilla folder and collaged, painted, stamped, sketched on the back. a sort of inspiration board for my friend with colors and themes we both love.
the letter was actually an invitiation to a forest tea party, hence the tea, bird and tree theme.

red shoes and white posies…

bought some new colored pencils in the most lovely pale tones and art paper with rose petals pressed within the fibers. i have something in mind….

i went thrift shopping the other day and hit the jackpot! vintage everything…a bright yellow leather purse, a navy blue 60’s knit shirt dress with princess shoulders that fits perfectly, mushroom and bumble bee embroidered art, 1950’s diner mugs in shades of robin egg blue and sunny yellow, a captured butterfly with tattered wings in a glass case, a horse mug, a holly hobbie paperweight…will post pics soon of all of it! there is an underlying theme- sunny, bright yellow.

i simply love yellow!
