So this week our prompt is "Things you think are beautiful".  And since we have creative license to interpret these prompts any way we like, I went, what I thought was a different route....I used things I'd received in swaps for my beautiful things....Notes from partners/friends, atcs, tags, various little bits and bobs that get included with the actual art....I love it all...even the envelopes!  So, I dug into my new Dylusions paints, using turquoise, black and white, and just used a fat brush and large swaths of paint to create the background....I didn't want it too busy because I didn't want my goodies to get lost....

Then I began adding all my goodies....a note card from Patty, a little card from Tamie, with a personal note written inside, a die cut pig and a couple of envelope parts from Lynny, and ATC from Andie, tag from Deborah, a circle from a previous swap, but since it was floating around in the bottom of my goodie box, I'm not sure who sent it....a felt cupcake from another member of our mail art group, but as it was also out of it's envelope, I honestly don't know who sent it.  OH!!!  And a paper doily from Martha!  I love this so much, I think I am going to have to make some more pages of just mail goodies!

So, there you have it!  Things like this, are the things I believe are beautiful....little pieces of my friends hearts
