Judi is a "shoe horse".....so when the theme of "mail art" was selected for our art group, I penciled in my notebook "Shoe for Judi"! Her response to me made it worth all my creative effort!!! Thanks girlfriend for all the kudos!
It you want to send a mail art shoe, just be sure to follow the postal regulations.
The birdhouse wooden buttons were given to me by another art friend. It was perfect for adhering all the flower layers together.
A rubber stamp quote was stamped onto paste paper than I had made in a calligraphy workshop. It was serendipity that it matched the background paper so well. I attached a tiny tag I made with hand lettered "fly" with a string. I received years ago before birds were so popular from another artist in a swap where she added a tag in the bird's beak. I loved that detail so much that I have added it to my many birds too.
Three small pearls from an old necklace was wired to a nest embellishment before it was secured using E-6000 glue. A velvet green leaf was placed under the nest. OMG, I am beyond thrilled that Judi loved receiving her shoe!
