Mail Art page

Over the last year, my faithful  readers might have noticed a marked dip in the number of my posts which matched the lack of crafting... As things return to normal, slowly, I spotted the Mail Art call from Victoria. I have never done Mail Art before but as I have plenty of postmarks and postal imagery stamps, I felt it was a good opportunity to get me back in the swing of things. 
All the details are on the Paper Artsy blog and you can spot all the art under the #PaperArtsyMailArt tag on Instagram and Facebook

Our contributions will join Victoria's Vintage journal and we will get back a piece of her Mail Art. 


The background is Infusions (Rocky road) and Brushos (Aquamarine, Moss green) and some Antique Linen Distress ink to add an aged look to the piece.  

Most of the stamps are from Paper Artsy: ID02 (Owl), HP1111(Phrases), ELB33 (Corner) and HP1110 (Chambord Castle).

The miniature postcard has been created with several partially stamped images from MN30 (the writing) and other stamps from my collection.

I really enjoyed this project, using some of my favourite (oldies) stamps and the idea of rejoining the crafting community. 


Thanks for coming by,

 Craftyfield   I am entering the Allsorts (it's their Birthday!) and SSS Monday                                                                  challenges
