delivered to ...

I joined in a mail art swap this week and it inspired me to make another envelope!  The first one I made is now on it's way to Florida!!  When I passed it to the man in the post office to put a stamp on it he just said "oh!" when he saw it was full of colour and put the stamp in the middle, next to the address, so this time I made a space for one!!

I stamped 'dog' by Roc Nicholas (I just LoVe this stamp) over various bits of writing from the junk mail and bills that come through the door!  I thought it would be quite fun to use letter ephemera for my mail art!

'Paris Postcard' gave some great texture in the background, along with some stencilled ink, rub on letters and a touch of washi tape.

I can't wait for my mail art to pop through the door, it really brightens my day when a decorated envelope appears amongst the mass of common white or brown ones!!  Head over to my blog 'The Art of Moodling' if you'd like to see my other envelope :)
