April FAL weekend – KarenV

I finished up this cute design by Ewe and Eye and Friends into a pinkeep for the FAL this weekend 🙂 It’s called Brown Bunny; I totally copied Su and Paola with the colour scheme of the design, using Crescent Colours Toasted Marshmallow and a brown DMC on a piece of 36ct Cocoa linen from Silkweaver. The back fabric is white with a pale pink pattern, which matches the thread really well.

Oh and in case anyone’s wondering, I left the B (the designer’s initial) next to the brown bunny deliberately, rather than subbing my own initial, because I originally thought it stood for Bunny 🙂

Mail Art Links

Thanks Barbara for kicking off this wonderful tutorial – I’m looking forward to seeing the results 🙂  In case anyone wants any further ideas for designs/layouts, or just wants to drool over some eye candy, here are a couple of links for you to galleries:

AccroStitch – scroll down the left-hand side to “La galerie des enveloppes brodées et ses rondes” … there are pages and pages of finished mail art envelopes to drool over 🙂

Veronique Million – picturetrail album

Liliankok – webshots album

Aniza’s album – an alternative method of making the mail art envelopes

I thought I had a few others bookmarked, but can’t find them … but that should keep you busy for a while.  If anyone else has some links to share, please leave a comment with the link, and I’ll add them to the list 😀

Here are some more from a mail art exchange I was part of last year – there were only three of us in the exchange, but the mail art was beautiful 🙂
