Hello it's me Tera again here with a super fun 2 part Circus Mail Art series.

I started by stamping out my envelopes and a set of "masks" to mask off the areas i don't want covered by sprays. (Below you can see I used scarp paper to create my masks)
Look how awesome these envelopes look even with out color!
Below you can see the parts I masked off
Next I sprayed the envelopes with a homemade ink spray then removed the masks and allowed to dry
To finish of my pieces I added my postage stamps and tried to match the colors in them by using my distress markers and a water brush for a fun vintage feel.
I hope you all enjoy these and have fun creating some of your own!
