gocco giveaway

Last month I was part of the one : gocco swap organized by Sarah at cloth.paper.string. The theme was 'one' - one image, one word, one screen. And to then interpret that how you like. Taking my doodles as a starting point, and my love of the cornish hedgerows and their abundance of wildflowers and weeds, I created a very simple sketch. In fact, this is more like the shadow of the hedgerow, as all detail is lost and I'm simply showing the outlines and form.


One image, one colour, one cornish hedge. I printed notecards, all on recycled card stock (some plain white, some banana paper, and some brown craft, plus envelopes), and these little packages have been posted off to my swap partners in Glasgow, Australia and the US. In return, I'm receiving some lovely goodies in the mail.

I also have some of mine spare, so thought it was time for a giveaway - a little set of five cards with envelopes, to one lucky person. Leave a comment, and I'll make the draw next friday, 10 July, after 6pm.

I may be back before then. We'll see!

Hi Diana
I saw many hedges just like your picture, when we were in Roseland! I love the simplicity of your picture. Gocco fascinates me and I feel I must explore it further - any suggestions of where to get hold of the equipment?
Have a great week
