Mail Art Play

Hello peeps! Thanks for coming to visit me here. In the past month I've been having loads of fun fulfilling some happy mail requests and some surprises as well. Here is a little summary. Enjoy! 

Mail Art 01

For Roben-Marie Smith's design team, I made a tutorial for some fun happy mail pockets with a 5x7 gelatin plate, and with yummy rubber stamps by Kristin Peterson called Dream Thicket and the Shine set by Samie Harding 

Happy Mail Art Pockets video tutorial HERE

The contents of these pockets are prints from a gelliprinting session, seen below: 

Also, I've been decorating the white cardboard envelopes my StencilGirl club stencils come in. I've had such juicy fun decorating them that it's a shame they're not canvases!

Mail Art 02

Luscious plaid lines, mini hearts, dots and roses!

The whirly mandalas are so happy looking too. Lots of layers with the super matte chalk acylics by PaperArtsy, paired with the luminous Golden fluid paints. I think it's a perfect match!

Lately, I've enjoyed brayering on coloured backgrounds, instead of using a brush or sponge.
These pinks and purples swatches of colour are the result of my printmaking session for the art video tutorial, mentioned above. I really wouldn't need to add anything else to this luciousness, correct? But, I couldn't stop there, had to add my own marks and more to it!

Misty circles made with diy circle stencils add some more magic...

Just adore the script rubber stamp from the Shine stamp set! It adds the perfect ''looseness'' to my look. I actually managed to make two similar tags like this.

Now this l'il pocket I made waaaay back in 2015. I did make a tutorial for these pockets. See HERE. I hope to make a video tutorial for them one of these days. It's on my to-do list. 

Making more and more of these little painty index card files, with the added bonus of Art Pops stickers by Roben-Marie!

Mail Art 05

Several things are already tucked away in that book paper envelope. This time I added some streaks of smooshed colour. ♥

Loving this corner...

Wax seals make everything extra special!

Can't resist some glamour shots of the sewn edges on the envelopes! I find the Art Pops sticker in bottom middle-ish (in photo above) soooo gorgeous.

Well, here is the end of my post, I guess. I posted on my Instagram that I'd love to sell some of this type of mail art to you! For a decorated envelope, a wax sealed book paper envelope inside, a few tags and pockets, possibly some of my own stickers I've printed on my printer, and more, I'm asking $30.00 CDN + shipping. Shoot me an email at if you're interested! ♥♥♥

Have a great day!
