Write me a letter for AJJ

A digital  collage A4 size journal page for
July's theme is Post and Postage.
I used  mainly pieces  from the My  Craft Studio Programs,
together with images  I had stored on my computer.
Letter writing is becoming a thing of the past , with the ways we have to communicate
 with each other these days.
 But nothing will ever take the place
 of the letter the postman delivers and the anticipation of what will be found inside.
I am not talking about Bills or Junk Mail., 
 it may be just a few words from a friend , or a card ,
 but ,I am sure that these would brighten any ones day, if they  were to drop through our letter boxes.

Thank you for stopping by to see me, the comments you leave are always appreciated.


  1. I agree with you, e-mails are fine but there is nothing better than receiving a letter from a friend or relative - and recognising the handwriting! I love the elements you have included here ! A brilliant page! Chrisx

  2. Beautiful digi page Yvonne. I like to get letters also, seems more personal that way!

  3. Lovely journal page, great colours. Glad you joined us again at Art Journal Journey, hugs, Valerie

  4. Very beautiful page you created Yvonne with soft colours and wonderful roses.

    Love Chrissie xx

  5. Another fantastic page Yvonne! You are really on a roll with Art Journaling! Happy weekend to you and thank you for another fantastic entry to Art Journal Journey!

  6. A very fabulous page Yvonne !! I like very much the letter, the roses, the Eiffel tower.... alll. and, of course, there ´s nothing better than a letter, card, from a friend!! Happy weekend ! and big hugs, Caty.

  7. Love the journal page Yvonne, I don't think many send mail anymore except for bills, emails have taken over...sadly...Have a wonderful weekend.

  8. Really lovely collage you created Yvonne!!!
    It certainly is fun when there is real mail in the mailbox.
    I just said yesterday that if it weren't for "junk" mail/advertisements and such we wouldn't get any mail at all :-(
    Happy Weekend oxo

  9. I agree your opinion about letters and cards.
    You've made a very charming page. Love it.
    Have a great weekend, Yvonne♥

  10. Beautiful collage Yvonne!! I completely agree with you and as much as I love the convenience of the internet, I think it's really taking away from the experiences of life. Letter writing, going to the movies, hand written it's all E-vite and Net-flix. The last drive-in near to us closed down a couple of years ago, broke my heart. So sad. happy weekend, hugs :)

  11. A beautiful collage page & I love the bicycle stamps on it. You are so right when you say that you can't beat a proper handwritten letter, they are always so nice to receive :-)

    Re the flag... It would indeed have been to the left of the screen as the riders up the valley.


  12. That's a wonderful collage, great details.

  13. Beautiful and I do hope people
    stil send cards. I can be very happy
    seeing post on my doormat.

  14. Beautiful piece of digital art with so much of interest and I love the colours.

  15. I always like projects with a postal theme, and this is no exception. You have used some lovely images and colours. I love it when I get a real hand written letter or card in the mail.

  16. Wonderful collage! Love your art digital, Yvonne. And... you are right, nothing makes me happier than to receive a letter from a friend, is more personal than internet. Hugs, Mar

  17. Beautiful digi page Yvonne, love the theme and agree how pleasurable it is to receive something other than junk mail! Your layout is gorgeous love the Parisian elements.

  19. So true how a real letter means so much more - and what a gorgeous page celebrating the joys of letter writing and receiving. The warm sunshine colours are just delightful.
