The next leg of Ellie's journey has taken her to France, she is determined to find out more about her past and has memories from her early childhood of playing in the Lavender fields in Provence - the sweet smell takes her straight back to her youth and she tries to remember who else was there and how old she was. She sends this postcard back to Twinkle to keep her updated -
While there she visits the La Mairie (town hall/mayor's office) to search the ‘registres d'état-civi’ for her family name and finds several entries which she will have to take some time to research further. It’s her first step towards answering her long list of questions.
To see others postcards and follow their journeys take a trip to Darcy’s blog where it all began…Art and Sole.
The embellishment on my postcard was made by melting UTEE on a craft sheet, then pressing a stamp inked with stone grey Stazon into it while it was still liquid. I left the stamp in place to let the UTEE cool and then peeled apart. First time I've tried this and I was really pleased with the result. The Postcard is made from my one of my favourite paper pads – DCWV Olde World painted with a thin layer of Gesso over before stamping.
Here is the postcard in it’s book page. I used another piece of the DCWV paper for the corner pocket and some stamped images. I’m going to share my postcard over at a couple of other challenge sites too this week -
Thanks for visiting, hope you’re enjoying the weekend – Esther xx
