I have decide that in my own snail mail piece - I wanted to have a snail BUT after looking at pictures of them - I guess I forgot how ugly they are.  I remember in elementary school we had snails for a science class kept in screen topped aquariums.  Some kids broke into the school and took all the tops off - we came back on a Monday and snails were everywhere.  Stuck to the ceiling, walls, chalkboard and our desks - yuck!  Anyways - I am starting with a watercolor canvas with a sap green wash!  I am going to layer this note card so will be drawing my "snail" on 80 lb watercolor paper and trying some things with layers of paint, gel medium and tissue paper - wish me luck - hope you have started your challenge project!
Oh yes, there is always escargot!!!

My snail will definitely not be a real looking snail!
Here's to artistic freedom!
cheers, dana
