While having a sort out in my studio recently, I came across some old slide mailers - I nearly threw them out as they haven't been used for years. Then I thought why not have a go - so here is my first 'play'. In case anyone is wondering, slide mailers are small folded cards with glass slides for mailing samples off to laboratories.
The front - I used torn paper, rubber stamps and copper embossing powder.
The inside - you can see it opens as a book and the two glass panels were glued in using a very thin line of glue right on the edge of each panel, so it wouldn't show through from the front.
Still in a blue and orange mood I made this photo mosaic using photos from Charles Dickens birth place that I visited back in April.
Some of my great-grandmothers china.
