It's my turn to send off Mail Art to the Mail Art gals in
the USA and Australia.
The theme this time was
'Birds, Bees and Butterflies.'
I started off by covering a plain white envelope
with brown packing paper.
I Distress Stained the edges and then rubber stamped a
bee image all the way round the outside.
I dry brushed with gesso.
I used water soluble crayons to add colour, and
roughly brushed Lumiere paints on the edges
(can you see their metallic sheen?).
I stuck the image of a bird on each envelope
(from a book given to me by DD Hope at Christmas)
and rubber stamped 3 butterflies which I
coloured with the water soluble crayons.
The back of each envelope looked like this.
Inside each envelope I popped a few collage
bits and pieces with the bird, bee and butterfly
theme in mind.
They're in the post!
