Back of Card
Lots of things happening on the back. I used the gel transfer technique to put Hebrew writing in the upper part of the card, a copy of the Dead Sea scroll on lower left and Menorah in the lower right . I found a copy of an old post card heading, that I placed on the top of the card. All this was covered with a light coating of linen acrylic paint and partially wiped off with baby wipe.
Correspondence from Melite to Alexander:
"Thank you for writing back to me so quickly-When I contact Franceso
I Will be sure to ask her who Pierre is?
Well as you can see I have made another
side trip -Israel. I'm taking in all the religious shrines and of
coarse the "Dead Sea"- The buildings are amazing, lots of colorful
mosaics, so I'm getting a lot of paintings done. Heading
to Eilat to go diving at the Coral Beach Reefs.
Page in Book
This page isn't fully complete but you get the flow- I
used the map from the travel brochure and
cut out several images -The modern buildings in Tel Aviv are
awesome pieces of art- then you travel east and see the wonderful religious sites
of the Wailing Wall & Jerusalem city - Such contrast in one old country.
Well Until next week
Enjoy the Journey & Happy Creating!
