Did I ever tell you,
dear reader, that friends send me lovely
ephemera and treasures
sent me loads of beautiful old stamps..
and they inspired me to make some
small collage tiles...
using a neutral color palette
mini mixed media paintings
they measure 3 1/2" x 3 1/2"
and I mounted them on mixed media board..
they feel so romantic to me,
rich in drama..
I imagine them traveling far..
to distant places with hope and love,
news of congratulations, celebrations...
and of sadness and tragedy..
a tiny geometric shape...
holding so much energy..
as it was fixed to the envelope...
I love the stories that I weave in my mind...
about all the people that touched just one of these
it is as if I can hear them whispering to me
from the past...
I don't know how many I will make, but I have a few more in the works..
may your week be beautiful
and all your letters filled with joy..
