Silly blogger lost my original post about my Mail Art,
this is a copy.....
At last it was my turn to send out Mail Art to the other girls in the Mail Art group, with the theme of
'Where I live'
and everyone will now have
received their envelope.
I live in the UK,
in the county of Kent
which is commonly known as
'The Garden of England'.
In my mail I wanted to bring out this
green and floral aspect of Kent.
The envelopes are all very similar but
they have subtle differences.
First of all I covered the blank envelopes
with pages from a local paper.
Next, I photographed my front door and made a gel transfer (making sure to 'flip' the image so both it
and the house number would end up the right way round).
I LOVE gel transfers!
Then I stuck on a map of the South East of England,
circling 'my' area of Kent.
I then cut and stuck lots and lots of pictures of flowers,
plants, and gardens (from tatty old Ladybird books).
I stamped the word 'Kent' using mixed fonts, an arrow with the sentiment"All roads lead to my door," and one of my
Tim favourites, 'Enjoy the Journey.'
On the reverse of each envelope I did a Union Jack gel transfer with my return address information.
Inside the envelopes I enclosed some brochures of local places of interest, some postcards, and a personally written sheet explaining a little about this local area.
