Do the Eyes Tell Secrets?: Mixed Media Mail Art
I know they say the eyes are the window to the soul but I personally have never seen into any one’s soul by looking into their eyes. I know that I am not the most observant individual and I don’t always pick up on body language but it seems rather unlikely that I will be able to pin down someones deepest darkest secrets by gazing into their eyes. I look into my hubby’s eyes all the time and I gather more from his tone and facial expression than from his eyes. My hubby on the other hand can read me like a book. Yet, I don’t think it has anything to do with my eyes. He can read every micro-expression that flashes across my face. I wish I had that talent.
But when it comes to artwork, the eyes can set the tone for a painting. So, maybe there is some truth to that quote. It just hasn’t found me.
Creating the Mail Art
So…I made another postcard. I stenciled the Ornamental Floral Screen in the background and stamped a Japanese wave stamp over some Dylusions Paint.
I stenciled and embossed the Art Deco Flower Medallion and layered it over a piece of chipboard. I used a Wendi Vecchi stamp, fiber, thread, doodling and some splatters to embellish.
Other Postcard Art:
I just thought I would share this picture of my Yucca plant. My daughter decided to feed it cheerios. I found it hiding in one of the branches today when moving my plants around. Haha! 2 year old’s sure do some crazy things.
Thanks for stopping by,
