Hello again Katerina! Thank you so much for all the birthday cheer! This is my third year of celebrating my birthday with IUOMA friends and you've been here with me since the beginning! Fabulous! XOXOXO.
Hi Katerina! Thanks for all the birthday proclomations all over the place. Hee hee! I can always count on my IUOMA friends! I got the "Blue for you" card today. Much thanks. It's lovely and full of depth. XOXO
You sent a sterling, exquisite sample of the best of crumbly rust that I can and will most definitely use in mail art, Katerina. It's gorgeous! Where did you find it? (Haha, I hope not on your car ...) Thank you SO much ~
So glad you like it, Katerina, and the papers that are shiny would be pieces of book pages that I happened to paint on a bit thickly with fluid acrylics, which tend to dry on the glossy side. When watered down, they stay matte (unless many layers of the paint). Very occasionally I might hold a fragile page together by applying gloss medium (actually, that's probably what happened with one of the fragments in your collage).
