Mail Art is the current challenge on the Paperartsy blog this week.
Here is my take on this..
I was inspired to create this after seeing the post from Wendy Mallas with her fab creation.
I started with the front piece of a Please Do Not Bend envelope, I always keep the card back for projects but always throw away this front piece.
Wendy said towards the end of her post to try paler shades for the background, so I used some blobs of Cheesecake and 2 blobs of Claret Fresco Chalk Paints. Recently I have seen artists using a window blade to move paints, so I tried this also!!
I chose the images I wanted to use, from Wings Plate 4 and Letters Plate 5, and like Wendy I stamped them onto some tissue paper.
As Wendy suggested, I thought of different ways to use these images. In my mind they could be pictures that could be hung on a wall. For a bit of fun, I sketched onto the envelope some telegraph poles and used my pictures to hang from the wires!!. A white sharpie pen completed the frames.
Thanks to Wendy for the inspiration, great fun to think of different ways to incorporate your stamps into artworks!!
