This mail art is for a swap group I was invited to join by Sue Emmerson in Australia. After I hosted a creative swap last year on mail art, Sue wanted to keep things going! Six people are part of this group which means we create 5 envelopes for each theme, every other month. The group was kept small because that was the most we could all manage. I love mail art, so of course I joined! There is another small group of mail artists whom I will join in with next month, so if you like mail art you shan't be wanting, I'll share it here. In fact, I have some other mail art I hope to share here, but wanted to start with this first!
I started by creating envelopes from an envelope template and 12x12 paper.
Then I used matte medium to meld some bird themed tissue paper to the envelope.
At first the envelopes looked like this . . .
Then I added rubber stamping . . .
See you in the mail!!!!!!!
