Do You Swap Mail Art? : Mixed Media Mail Art
I wanted to share this before but due to life I am only now getting around to sharing my swap with Dianne. Her beautiful postcard arrived in this envelope decorated with this amazing illustration.
I love that Dianne created all the illustrations on this postcard and that she included something that I love, Egypt.
Just look at all those illustrations that she drew by hand.
This week was my son’s birthday party. He loves bunnies so of course he asked for a cake with a bunny. Well, a bunny butt.
I am always decorating the cake when guests arrive. No matter how much time I try to leave myself, I never get it complete in time. I used a new meringue recipe for the icing and it did not color well at all so I decided not to cover the sides of the cake and left it naked instead.
Can I just say that those bunny feet took a very long time to make.
Creating the Mail Art
The background is tea bags that have been stained and stenciled with StencilGirl. I layered another tea bag, paper scraps, sari fabric, and stenciled chipboard.
My favorite part of the postcard was the embossed tea tags.
It’s tea day and I am joining the T ladies over at Elizabeth and Bleubeard. My tea today is a tea that I haven’t tasted but is on my Amazon list so I am hoping to taste it soon. It is a Yan Hou Tang 10 Years Aged Organic Taiwan Ginseng Oolong Osmanthus Black Tea Loose Leaf Deep fermented. If and when I get it, I will let you know how it tastes.
Happy Tea Day,
