“Follow what you are genuinely passionate about and let that guide you to your destination.” Diane Sawyer
Many thanks to our hosts of Sky Watch Friday, who organize for us to visit hundreds of views from all over the world each week.
Blogging for Alphabe-Thursday, Jenny is hosting weekly parties working through the alphabet and lucky me, this week is P, Pretty, Paris, Postcards sytled into unique Postal Art by Pearl Maple.
Some parts are from lovely postcards that my friend JoJo Caramel sent from France, stamped images from Tattered Angels other images from Altered Pages and maps are from an old atlas. Geography was my favourite subject in school, can’t you just tell.
Destinations is a lovely theme and thank you to Evelyn for hosting the Carnival of Post Cards where groups of bloggers celebrate the beauty and history of post cards and mail art. You know I like to play with altered books and I really should have taken a photo of the little post cards from Paris that JoJo Caramel sent to us to restyle in a new creative adventure. Update: another French themed party we are linking too is Frenchy’s, sure is a popular theme! check out here give away competition while you are there.
This month’s theme in the Carnival of Postcards is geography so I have included maps, lots of maps and even a little postage stamp with a globe on it. Here are the first few pages, keep checking back for updates as more pages are added. And as always, I confirm for my postcard & stamp collecting friends, all materials have been checked for signficance before being altered.
