Fun Postal Art & Stamps
Lately, I’ve been very much into decorating the envelopes I send with clippings, rather than actual drawings on them.
So here are just a couple I made. It’s nothing extraordinary, but I thought it was fun! And it’s still summer, so I need to have some fun!
I add the images on the envelopes with Modge Podge, it’s really easy to do and it sticks really well!
I had a tons of magazine that I had to put in my recycle bin. I have a small appartment and I just can’t keep everything. (Which is kind of a good thing because I really don’t like long-term cluttering.)
But I decided to look into each of the magazines and see what interesting images I could save and reuse for my art and general craftyness.
Now, I have a full envelope of little clippings!
I am also collecting different stamps from my local Canadian Post office, so I can send them to my loyal penpals.
I buy them in booklets so I always have some available to send my letter right away. This way, I don’t have to go to the post office to send each letter.
Sure, I could just open an account and print out a code from my computer. But I love how some stamps are so beautiful and artistics.
And I’m sure my penpals appreciate having beautiful stamps on their letters rather than just some random price numbers.
Like this amazing one made made for the Titanic’s 100th anniversary!
If you know the story of the Titanic a little, you should know that it unfortunately flooded in the Canadian waters (Near Nova Scotia, I believe).
I swear this is the biggest canadian stamp I ever saw!
Have you wrote a letter, lately? Made some postal art? Tell me if you did!
