This is a picture I had thought about while I was at work one night. I will draw things to keep from falling asleep. I work nights and it is really hard to fight off Mr. Sandman at times, to I started putting some of my thoughts onto paper. I have really been working on faces lately. So, I got to thinking about doing one to look like it was peeking out from the bushes. I was only going to do a small amount of leaves around the face and then draw something else in the empty space. But, I got to drawing the leaves and just couldn't stop myself!!! So, this is the inspiration for the next few pieces of mail art that I did.
Since it was brought to my attention after I posted addresses of the people who will be receiving these great pieces, I blocked them out and just put the destination of the card. I do apologize for posting addresses. I lost my mind. I guess I will have to go hunt it down!!!!
These three are inspired from some of my first drawing attempts. I really love this type of drawing. It is totally spontaneous and random and I LOVE that!! It is kind of an "anything goes" type of drawing and no two will be alike!! The bottom one is the first one that I made. The top one is the second one and then I finally made it to the third one. I really love these!!!
These two are ones I decided to use some of my scrap papers to make. I don't remember off the top of my head who made these papers. I want to say 7 Gypsies, but not totally sure. They are really cool papers that already look like a collage. Then I pasted the large number, the stamps, and the typewriter and globe pieces. The number along with the typewriter and globe are made by Pink Paislee. After I got everything glued on, I decided it needed a little bit more. So, I decided to draw on them. After I finished, I stepped back and knew that is what they needed to be complete. So, that is what I have for Inspire Me Monday (now Tuesday). I started this post and worked on it several times between wrangling kids, cooking dinner, giving baths, etc. So, here it is Tuesday afternoon and I am just now finishing up the post!!!!! Thank you for coming by my little corner of the world. Please leave me a note to let me know that you stopped by!!!
