My Artistic Gene is Ambushing Me




I am so into making pocket letters I can hardly think of anything else!  
It's not that they are so awesome, actually many are received with a perfunctory thank you, but I am just enjoying the process of creating!  

I might like to keep the one's I've made but I love receiving them too much! 

I have a fat notebook now with about fifteen P.L.'s stuffed with goodies for me to use in creating more of them!  It is just so much fun to go out to the mailbox
these days!  

This is one of my recent Pocket Letters that I sent out this week.  

The front of the Pocket Letter has a theme.  This one has a Frenchy Poodle theme. 


The back is stuffed with interesting items  that may or may not be part of the the theme.
When the goodies are removed, a nice background compliments the front.  
I keep the goodies intact and use them as needed and the background slowly appears on the ones that I have received.  


This week I did two Etegami postcards to match the theme
Remember.....Clumsy is celebrated!  
I have never tried to paint animals but I loved the saying!


Especially clumsy is this one!  
Would you go up into this Eiffel Tower? 

It's the way you are supposed to hold the brush that makes straight lines difficult!




Normally I just send them in the mail to brighten someone's day.


I have a friend in New Mexico with a horse ranch...Again, I had a big stretch to do 
this Etegami, I have never tried to do a horse before!  I'm not sending this one just yet, I'm going to try and do a better one to go along with it.


The "rules" of Etegami is they go out, mistakes, ugly or just bad.  What you might not like someone
else will enjoy receiving it and can pass it alone or mercifully toss it.

I like to do flowers.  Here are a couple that will go out with my two Asian Pocket Letters




And that my friends is my life right now!

I have never seen a pocket letter in person! How interesting. Where DO you come up with all the "littles"??????

I have been a card sender and lover all my lie. Never knew about a pocket letter. You are very creative and talented.

These are so beautiful! You really have a talent, even if you think your lines aren't quite right. Zentangle (sort of a structured doodling) is like that - there are no mistakes!

Thank you so much for visiting my blog!

Oh my, Jeannie Marie, I love your darling pocket letters. The poodles are so precious (I am a poodle lover) and your art work is wonderful. I admire your art work so much. I too especially love the poodle and quote, "The naked truth is better than the best dressed lie" I can tell you are loving your pocket letters and that is what makes them all so special.

Thank you for joining Blue Monday at Backyard Neighbor.

xo,
Jeanne

Hi Jeanne Marie

Your pocket cards look like wonderful cards to receive in the mail--so much thought and creativity go into them. I used to do a lot of papercrafting and card making but since moving I haven't taken out all my supplies as yet....someday!

I know I would enjoy doing the pocket letters but I just don't have enough 'stuff' to really get started. I guess I need to shop! lol Love your art...especially the pretty flowers! You are so creative! Hugs!

So cool! I especially love the poodle one (my poodle is black). All I get in the mail is bills!
