Sundays with Sandee - Mail Art

Sunday, March 23, 2014

Hi everyone, I hope you are having a fabulous week-end and can sit down to some artful play. Let's celebrate letter-writing with some mail art! It doesn't have to be über fancy, but doesn't it make you smile when you get a decorated envelope in the mail?
I know it does me!

Here's my envelope I decorated sans address because it is after all on the internet and that would be a big invasion of privacy ( so it's a little unfinished and you will just have to use your imagination to finish it off ), but I think you get the idea.

In the world of instant results, mail is often sent via the electronic route. But if you cherish the olden days of mailing a letter through the postal service then why not take a moment and embellish the outside too. I'm sure the postal employees will also enjoy it!

My video, I hope you enjoy it :)

If this inspires you then please your creation over on the Frosted Designs Face Book page!

my friend Kate the Great used to cut magazine picture pages and fold her own envelopes (wrote the address on a white label)... & about 40 years ago (but who's keeping track, LOL) wrote me a letter on a piece of red construction paper: "it's a red letter day..."
