Love Letter (Mail Art)

June mail art envelope swap -- artist choice theme (mine is love letter).

 

Special thanks to Norma Francis for border collage pieces. Also used collage pieces from paperwhimsy (moon), artchix (7 women and labels), nick bantock rubber stamp in background, main image same man as rubber stamp man is from Paul Strand archive. (Hard to believe I found the same man Nick Bantock used for his rubber stamp, over in the flickr artimageslibrary. )

 

Crayon, pencil, metal, embossing, paint, rubberstamps, paper and glue.

 

Thank you for the visit.

    I have never attempted an altered envelope and first saw some examples on Astrid's blog. I was so impressed that now I can't get enough of them. It seems to me they bring out the very best in artists' work. Yours is superb. Absolutely beautiful, cleverly designed and so, so original. Take a bow!!
