Mind The Gap Envelope

image
Hello and welcome. Just a quick project to share for Artistic Outpost. I am trying my hand again at mail art. I am going strong when it comes to using what I have on hand. I have not been on a crafting shopping spree in about a year. I had withdrawls for a while as I am sure most of you can imagine. I bought a box of about 100 of these large manila envelopes a while ago when I was participating in a mini album swap. I still have about 80 left so I am working through the box slowly. I could sure use that space for extra storage.
I used the London Underground, Chalk It Up, and Background Elements stamp plates on this envelope along with gesso, ink sprays and run-ons. Thank you for taking the time to stop and look.

  • I admire your shopping restraint – and you’re certainly creating beautiful work that proves it’s not necessary to keep adding to the stash… this envelope is an absolute delight!

  • Isn’t it a wonderful buzz when showing restraint! I have to say that I am incredibly lucky with the stamps and other goodies I receive and do not have to pay a penny for – maybe my restraint wouldn’t be so good if I wasn’t in such a situation!
    Like yourself I love to root around the house searching for found papers and scraps, it is such fun.
    This is stunning mail art, something I have never really delved into, you make it so appealing. Those stamps could not be more perfect.

  • Oh I wish I could say I have not been on a shopping spree during 2013, but so far in 2014, I have not spent a cent! 🙂 This is beautiful mail art and I love the stamps and layers! Happy New Year!
