First Ghost Letter off!



Well, the first letter is off. Elle of Art Of A Letter and I are exchanging fictitious letters between a brother and sister, yet trying to incorporate actual events in the dialogue. I am deliberately not posting pictures of what I sent. I will leave that up to Elle, plus I don't want to ruin the surprise.

The picture above is a sample of what I used to create the letter. That's right, pen and ink, faithfully dipped and written. I did pick up a 9X12 sketch pad with 90# creme colored paper to have something to fold up old-style. I did discover that the paper has two sides! One side takes liquid ink very well. The backside, however, looks like a spider is sitting behind each letter. Oh well, live and learn.
