We had the hottest day of the year till now here, 37° outside and 32° inside -
for me a touch too hot, but we have to take it as it comes!
For Art Journal Journey, post and postage, I made a mixed media page with Postman Pat. This was an English children's programme, which was shown from the beginning of the 80s. He is a wonderful postman, who delivers the post day for day no matter what, and always accompanied by his cat Jess. I painted the A3 background with gesso, drew Postman Pat and Jess, and painted them with water colours. I knew I had a postman Pat stamp in my stash, and after searching for hours I found it (Okay, I could have copied one from the net, but I knew I had it somewhere....) The letter was made from a sheet of paper folded into letter form, and stamped.I wrote the sentiment by hand and drew the airmail pattern round the edges before collaging it.
So many postmen deliver our post day for day whatever the weather, so this is also a thank you to all of them.
I am also linking to Paint Party Friday, hosted as always by Eva and Kristin.
I went out earlier today in the hope that it would not be so hot, and had a walk along the Rhine, and then through some shady streets and alleys in our little town.
Have a great day you all, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!
