Well, here we go on a glorious adventure. Truth be told this will be the first thing I have ever written, well other than essays and compositions for school. And of course lesson plans for my teaching. But let's just say the first "story" I have ever created and like I said in my previous post, the romantic undertones shocked me completely.
As we begin Marcello has spied a young gypsy girl performing on violin in the city market. Never had he heard such beautiful music emanate from a violin! Marcello just knew she was letting her heart and soul live in her music. He had to find away to correspond with her . . . he saw her open violin case in front of her and left a postcard for her . . .
TO create the front I first stamped my image with a music collage stamp by STAMPABILITIES with brown Stazon ink. Then I used the melted crayon technique i learned from Martha (Seekingforart) then collaged 4 images on that. The Map of Austria a photo of Mozart, The Salzburg Opera House, and of course the Alps. The edge of the postcard front and the word "Salzburg" we embossed using ultra thick embossing powder (by Ranger) in bronze.
The Post card back was created by me on PrintShop 2 for Mac. I used a vintage paper background adding a jpeg of a stamp. The writing is my actual handwriting.
Hope you enjoy the beginning of this great adventure . . .
