Love, Love,Love,      Beatles 1967

Back of my Beatles postcard

February's mailart swap was a gas, gas. gas....oh wait, that's part of a Rolling Stones song.  The theme was any Beatles song and I knew exactly what I wanted to do.  Here goes:
Beatles photo from an old magazine.  The boys are actually in a swimming pool.  Cut out their heads.  Glued heads to hearts playing cards.  I really love the way John is belting out the song, Paul is taking a portly stance, and Ringo is holding a flower.  Stamped hearts on pink heart paper..glued on.   Cut out letters from magazine and glued on.  At first I created an envelope with love, love, love written on it... I was going to use it as the background, but instead tore it and glued on randomly.  Gave it all a coat of matte medium to hold it down.  Next, glued the cards to red cardstock and sewed around each card.  (I think my sewing is improving,)  Created the back of the postcard with my Palmer Cox brownie stamp by adding small hearts.  I have a whole set of postcard stamps that come in handy.  Tore some love, love, love paper.  I couldn't resist adding my new stamp: Liquid Glass Handle with Care.  Lastly, sewed the two pieces together.  At the post office I found the new red LOVE postage stamp.  It all came together perfectly.  This was my Valentine's card for my MailArt buds.   Next month:  the sea, water..oh boy...  xoxo
