I was sooooo excited when I saw Michelle’s crusade for this month. MAIL ART!!!!! Can you just believe it?? Well check out the archives for some of my postcards and envelopes; mail art is not new, but for some reason I moved on from an atc phase to a mail art phase and I am having a blast. I think there is nothing nicer than seeing that cool decorated envy or postcard in a pile of junk mail. I try never to send out bare envelopes even if I just plonk a stamp down on it; but I do love to practice background techniques and now spray painting in my journal or on envelopes. So here is one I made to mail out to a friend today; even before I saw the new Crusade. As Michelle would say, how cool is that???LOL

    Love your envy! The “Private” is too cool! Is it a stamp? Also, love the “Mail Art” with the white outlines, really makes the art stand out! That is so cool that you create so many envies to mail to friends. I am quite boring as I always forget!
