Lenna from Creative Lenna is hosting a Mail Art swap. I met Lenna on 'Your Vintage Gluebook' and again on 'Collage Coterie'. She has a quirky fun style, and always has such different ideas.
I made my 4 envelopes out of cartridge paper using a Judikins envelope template. I then covered all of them with strips of torn paper - maps, letters, book pages, paper bags, etc. They were then given a layer of gesso, wiped off when wet to reveal some of the background. Each envelope was then decorated.
|A Person From England|
Title taken from discarded book cover, original bus and coach tickets, picture of gentleman from book, brown paper bag edging.
|Seed-eaters and Insect-eaters|
Original bird photograph (blog win from Pixie), egg from book, title from book. Paper bag edging.
|Pussy Cat Pussy Cat|
Cat picture from old Ladybird book, original bus tickets, paper bag background.
So these will be going in the post tomorrow, and in due course I'll get 4 back - 3 from other participants and 1 from Lenna herself. She's making one for every participant (and over 50 have signed up...!).
