Mail art

In the interests of tying up a few loose ends before 2012, over the next few days I'll be sharing some projects from this year that didn't yet make it onto the blog :)

Here's some Mail Art I sent as part of Ginger's Mail Art Exchange:

I made the notebook from various 'scrap' pieces of paper and card

Made good use of my new stamps and punch from Michael's!

I began with an ordinary sheet of brown paper, and covered it with paint, scraps from an old atlas, and stamped 'travel' images

I like the way bits of brown still peek through!

I added some white paint to give me a clearer background for writing the address, then sent it on its way to Lisa :)

Such a pretty package, am sure it cheered the postal workers up on it's way to Canada!
Thanks for giving the info on the class for the new year, I've popped over to Kirsty's blog and signed up. Need to have something nice to look forward to in the new year and all for a very good cause!

What a lovely package....I've loved receiving mail art this's really brightened up many a day.

What a great package! And I really like that border punch you used on the card.

I have some mail art surprises planned for January!

Merry Christmas.

Love it :), I think at some point you should count up how many projects you've completed this year, I think the # will be quite impressive!
