On Our Travels with Darcy's Postcard Challenge - Jamaica
After seeing so many beautiful sunsets pictures as I researched Jamaica I had a go at making my own. I used Distress Stains for the background and stamps from Stampscape for the images. I was really pleased to find a stamp of the famous toboggan team for the back. My page shows the flag, one of those sunsets and two famous Jamaicans.
The pocket is what I think is a wonderful painting by the Jamaican painter Barrington Watson called "Dance of the Maroons". The Maroons are descended from runaway slaves. They established communities in the interior of Jamaica. A vibrant community continues to this day and this painting depicts a dance as part of a celebration.
