Art journal page POST CARD

  Here's another layout from my art journal...

Supplies list is almost endless.! I don't have a track of them...
Started with a decoupage paper from DCWV for the bg.. Then built up layers using DIs antique linen, scattered straw, wild honey.. [The colors almost washed out when i applied gel medium finally :( ] maybe next time i need to be careful.! Random stamping with postal stamps from itsybitsy, Tim Holtz French artist & little things stamp sets..

The post box is hand drawn using the template i created for this card. Colored with memento lady bug & fired brick DI. Also added some washed out black soot over the shadows to create a old & worn out look.. Envelopes are again drawn & fussy cut.. Hearts from a border punch & colored with red sketch pen.. Worn text stamp set used for the words.. Whole layout covered with Liquitex matte gel medium..Highlights given using uniball signo white gel medium..

Personal note:
I love to write & receive letters.. During school time we used to run a daily newspaper named motto today & also a magazine motto weekly... All handwritten.! We were a very small group with fantasy names & address like
Poonguzhali, kalangarai vilakam (lighthouse in tamil), kodikarai. (Dats me. One of my favorite fictional characters from a great historical tamil novel "ponniyin Selvan")
Florentyna, Hogsmeade, Lapland..
Tinker Bill, The windmill, Transylvania etc..
we also had a post master (Winky ;)) to deliver everything..
When i look back it all seems so funny & i had the best time of my life then :)

That I guess is the longest personal note i've written so far on a blog post :D

Thanks for ur patience & time.! Hope u liked it.. Ur comments mean a lot.. C u soon.
Create. Have fun.
