The one about out of the blue




Deb Silva started a fun game or swap or challenge or whatever you want to think of it. Out Of The Blue Mail Party. I was brought into it by Alicia in Spain, who invited me to play. I in turn got to invite two other people to play...and so it goes. I make art for Alicia, and also for the two that I invite. Here are two of the three pieces that I made; I still have one more to go.
The top one came together really easy---I just seemed to have all the parts out right where I could easily grab them. The orange painted book paper with the hole cut into it was a scrap. (i love scraps the best---I never seem to throw anything away anymore, unfortunately, afraid that I might need it later.) It was so cool to find that orange and blue postage stamp.
The second one is titled "Constellation" and was kind of a mess. Well, it's a mess to me. :P Not sure that I like it---there isn't enough order to the messiness. I must have order somewhere in the chaos.

I love 'em both...there's nothing like a good messy piece of art. Of course, compared to my messes your piece is very orderly. LOL! Fab stuff!
