Didn't like the first paint job - so added lace, piece of fabric & paper & covered it all with Modge Podge - happy with it now.
Trying to be brave & use paint - background painted, then paper collage & modge podge finished it off.
The background was a piece of art painted by a 7yr old for me - it came down off the fridge, got cut up, made a postcard & sent it to the artist. Love the way this turned out. All 3 pieces have added to my MailArt 365 project - am now up to #271! Counting down.
