Oh What a Day

Yesterday was a most productive day. I finished two projects: a new card for David and my Gocco Postcard Swap. In addition to my projects, I managed to clean up my workspace (a little bit), and listen/watch the Mets lose (AGAIN).

I am mainly happy that I finished my postcards for the Gocco Postcard Swap. All that I have to do is wrap them up and send them in and I can wait for my surprise package with all of the return cards—it will almost be like an early Christmas present.

I do have to say that I am fairly pleased with the project although I don’t think that everyone will get the humor. The backgrounds were printed with the text of the words “dusty” and “rose” in burgundy ink. Once these were dry, I overprinted with a rose graphic in white. I thought about using pink ink but I was afraid that it wouldn’t be translucent enough to read the underlying text—plus, the white ink makes it look “dusty.”

Oops, the gocco swap! I didn't forget about it, but I figured I'd look at it later, and now it seems that I've most definitely missed the boat. I'll try to not miss the next one.

The Dessert Rose pattern -- ha! Brings back memories, it was really popular. I think the lady I cleaned house for (in high school) had those dishes. Saw them everywhere though.
