I have had quite a time getting it into my studio, in fact, had it been left on a desert island for me to pick up and rescue I would probably have felt less stressed.
Long story short? it got misdirected and because I mail in and out a lot, a very kind Postie did some investigating for me before we went along official lines...
I've now done my work, and am thinking, rather than tempting fate, I am going to send it my Hermes signed delivery, because Sherry and I haven't had a problem using my Hermes, and because I use it often the Drivers get to know my packages & routes (they like my art!!!!) and a lost item is less likely.
So I learnt two lessons -
external mail art on the packaging is nice for the Postie,
never draw circles over numbers...
I have added to every Karen Joural page and completed my own:
First entry (feels like I'm dong the radio One Pop Charts!)
bird gerhl - I added some background collage and used light and shade to make the face POP
next was Pat's Sweet Child of Mine, so I added in an embossed 'mother and child' stamp
embossing looks odd in the image
Karen has asked each participant to write what they did on the back:
In at number three: Ave Maria, I embossed over Virginia's addition of the two crosses in Vintaj Copper Emboss Metal
Four: Virginia's Purple Rain
I added the rain drop and accented the lettering to give it more POP
And Last up (and half way around the rotations) at Number 5:
my very own Pink Floyd Final Cut : graphite on mount board, sealed with gesso and matte and gloss varnished, 'lifted and lightened' and then accented with blue watercolour.
