Lots to do - Mail art


Its been a lovely day today good drying weather! Forecast is for more tomorrow yipee a sunny Bank Holiday Monday! A good day for playing am now covered in ink having throughly enjoyed myself and covered this envelope.

Hilda is back from Belgium and brought back rather a lot of ciger boxes with her! Her theme this week at Lots to do is to decorate something to go in the post be it an envelope or a postcard. Love to decorate my envelopes but am usually in to much of a rush to do them, really enjoyed playing with this one.

Barn door, Victorian Velvet and Blending block shades of orange on mat with water envelope swished around in it. A post it note used to cover where the address would go rest of envelope stamped mostly with Stamp Bug but also some Paper Artsy mixed in leaving a little space for the stamp. postit removed, Scattered straw blended over that unstamped section of the envelope. More Victorian Velvet rubbed round the edges, Stormy Skies patted over all the gaps around the edges. So if this lands on your mat you'll know who it is from without opening it.
