|Blue Bird of Happiness, my new ink!|
So many things have happened since my last post. I don't know where to begin! So I'll begin with my new body ink. I had wanted to change up the little purple heart for a year and finally was able to do it. It's blended into the blue bird so nicely. I'm very happy about this. Thanks to my dear friend, Amy, super #1 tattoo artist in RVA.
We left for a trip to Philadelphia and NYC the weekend before last (right after my ink work.) While away, I made only 4 pieces of mail art. Long story made short, I got sick with bronchitis and didn't have much energy, though the trip kept going. These hens went to my little neighbors whose chickens couldn't stay with them.
Simple works for me - I had a exhibit card that I cut in half. I added the stamp and the two letters. It works. I think it has a nice quality of depth. What do you think?
I'm hoping to get back to making mail art now that I'm feeling better. I'm at #942. I'd wanted to get to 1000 by my birthday; I've only 58 more to make. yay!
