I was at Aaron Brothers and positively salivating but also a bit bewildered by all the mixed media materials.....no wonder artists are broke. Well I'm no artist, but I do want to create. I made this postcard to send to my friend, Shannon. I found the old-fashioned post card template via Google images. The Queen Elizabeth image is from a book about coronations, which hadn't been checked out since 1985 and which I weeded from my school library. The poem conveys a panic attack I recently suffered, but I stuck that iconic image of British posters admonishing citizens to endure the stresses and strains of World War II--the only spot of color in this black and white collage.

I remember making a God's Eye in art class at elementary school with yarn and dowel rods, and this Etsy blog had me agog. I so want to make one again! I must remember to revisit this one: http://www.etsy.com/blog/en/2011/how-tuesday-weaving-a-complex-ojo-de-dios/?utm_source=bronto&utm_medium=email&utm_term=Weave+a+Ojos+de+Dios%21&utm_content=etsy_finds_020812&utm_campaign=etsy_finds_020812 I ended up buying this and like it a lot even though the husband kind of detested it. I love yarn art and handmade!
