I just learned there is something called a Pocket Letter. Evidently, it has been around a long time, and I am just super far behind on the trend. My crafting friend, Marci, told a group of us about them and she had sent out 100s of them to people all over the world. She sent me one and I was hooked! Here is my first completed one that I made:
This PL (pocket letter) was made with a paper pack I bought at a yard sale last weekend and I added in some TH Dolls and sayings plus plenty of Stickles and paint stamped butterflies from DRS Designs. I ordered a fun acrylic key ring with happy hearts and wishes on it to also add to this, but my niece hasn't finished it yet.
I am linking this to **ART*JOURNAL*JOURNEY* where Valerie has inspired us with an Anything Goes theme for March. It has been awhile since I participated, and I miss all the fabulous women who are part of the group. I haven't really posted much about it, but I did have a little health scare last month. Looks like I will probably be able to avoid surgery, but I have had to adjust to lots of new medicines, give up alcohol and roller coasters (neither have phased me - lol), and pay a bit more attention to my diet. I am doing much better now.
That's a new word for me also Nancy. Several years ago I made a smaller version in a journal, but I totally forgot about it. I'm so glad you shared this one because it is a really cool idea, and I like how yours came out. Adding those taller ladies (or taller than the pocket) in the bottom corner looks great. Thanks for sharing this with us at AJJ for Valerie's challenge. I'm ready to go try this myself. Hope all is well and you get to do something fun. hugs-ErikaReplyDelete
Your pocket letter page with all of the greens turned out awesome! I remember back in the day trading ATCs and enjoy doing them once in a while! Really fun way to try out different techniques and sample colors! Thanks for sharing the inspiration!ReplyDelete
Gosh Nancy. I thought I was the one who was always behind. However, I have made several of these pocket letters. You also add a letter to the recipient in the middle section on the back. We also decorated our backs. I absolutely adore yours. Although technically NOT a journal page, it is the size of a journal. This will hopefully be fine for Valerie's theme at Art Journal Journey. Thanks for sharing it.ReplyDelete
