Celebration: Mixed Media Mail Art
As we approach our celebration of Christmas, preparations are getting down to the wire. I am finishing up last minute gifts, getting ready to shop for Christmas dinner and cleaning out my house. With several garbage bags of stuff sitting at my door, I am wondering if I should donate or just trash them. Sometimes, it is more trouble to get them over to the thrift store than to dump them in my trash can. So, amidst stumbling over trash bags and overestimating the amount of time it takes to make gifts, I am looking forward to a week of relaxation and celebration with my immediate and extended family.
Creating the Mail Art
I used a postcard for the base and covered it in book paper. Using black gesso I stenciled the
I layered stamped tissue paper, patterned paper, fabric scraps and a stamped tea bag.
I embellished with a Tim Holtz paper doll and word die.
I am joining the ladies for at T-day over at Elizabeth and Bleubeard. For my drink related item I am sharing the tea bag that I used in my post card art. Due to life’s craziness, I don’t have a pretty photo of tea to share today.
I am keeping it short today. Happy Tea day,
