My Mixed Media Art (spoiler)



Just a hint for using a protection sleeve:

I always glue the stamp on the card, go to the postoffice to put the datestamp on it and THEN I insert the card into the protection sleeve. So I have both: protection and a naked sent card.

If you glue the stamp outside on the protection sleeve stamp and datestamp will go lost after removing the sleeve. So it`s the same like sending in an envelope and not sent naked anymore.


Just a short note:

Our postoffice closes monday - friday at 12.30 pm. There is no mail pick up during the weekend or on bankholidays. So my envelopes may carry a later datestamp than my sent date says, because I click sent after I put them into the mailbox, if I don`t need to meet the postmistress.

A little something

I`m in my fifties, a quilter for 20 years.

A while ago I felt in love with paper crafting, mixed media and especially with mailart. I love to do collages, to play with colours and materials.

I spent a lot of time being creative and I always put time and effort in my swaps.
Making my art is very important for me.
I always read the profile from my swap-partner, hopefully to find something I can use for the swap, especially when the swap says sender`s choice.
Therefore I appreciate that my swappartner will do the same for me.
Honestly I have to say …. I always will give hearts for the swap, not for the extras, which are not necessary.

Comment: Thank you so much for the great swap! I appreciate the details about the colors you used, I like to quiz myself to see if I can identify them :-) (I missed cracked pistachio, hehe). I'm glad it gave you an opportunity to use an awesome stamp set! I've considered buying the professor set but so far it has not found it's way into my stash, maybe this year!
Response: You are very welcome! The colour where the moustache is is the cracked pistachio. I wondered how it turned out. *lol*
