Par Avion

This is my entry for the upcoming Sunday Postcard Art challenge where the theme is "Mail Art"- one of my passions.  This is also the first entry in my new blog; something I have been wanting to do for a while now. I wanted to design a new place to create , dream  and incorporate a bit of magic. A place filled with light and new perspectives.  Welcome to Foxglove Hollow!

  3. This is gorgeously stark in its black and whiteness and lush in sensual imagery! Bravo, Lori!
    I like this new blog, so light compared to the Raven. Do I detect a sea change here? I'd love to know the story...

  4. I have a great free elements and papers site for you to called 'with a Russian Dutch heart' and it has beautiful papers, and lots of really nice floral elements.

  5. Thanks so much for popping by and leaving kind comments. I love mail art too. Love your horse with wings, so beautiful. I have only tried mail art a couple of times. You should join our Paper Traders group. I would love to do a mail art swap/exchange.
    C-O-N-G-R-A-T-U-L-A-T-I-O-N-S on the launch of your blog.
    I have joined your blog followers and will be waiting for your next post.
    Keep smiling and creating,

  6. The black and white look of drawings is so effective, and it looks like mail art from the past, telling a story. I have always loved myths and fairy stories about winged horses, and this postcard is a treasure. All the elements fit together so well.
    Thank you for your comment on my blog and for the name of your new blog. Jez
