I love Leslie's illustrated Mail Art for me : ^ )
For what she did for the swap, I will quote Leslie. "I tried 3 or 4 of the methods in the lesson she included with the swap fee, plus about 3 more from the net. Some were ok, some were cool, but I ended up doing something from scratch using crazy quilt blocks that I had pieced from batik fabrics but never finished (typical for me). One has no stitching, one has one seam done, the third has a bit more, but nothing like the encrusted look I used to go for when CQing."
I have to agree!!
Leslie popped her books in unsealed envelopes which is great for me - easy to open, photograph & return. Leslie also very kindly made an extra, different book for me! It has a page in it from 1816!!! The cover is handmade paper and it is bound with linen thread. See it below.
Thanks so much, Leslie. I am very glad you enjoyed participating because I love including your awesome books in this swap!! To see more of Leslie's art please visit her blog, One Woman's Hands.
