it's me Tera here with a fun piece of mail art, that is just because I can.
When it comes to mail art I usually have a rhyme or reason, but today I just created to create. I basically picked stamps to use just because I liked them, and regardless of theme.
To start I began with a standard A2 envelope and stamped the fun little acorn. I masked it off then stamped the doodle circles and grunge plus signs. ( I used them as an x)
The row of chevrons was used to create a focal spot for the address to be easily observed.
Now that all of the foreground stamping is done, I used various blue and green distress inks to lay color down on the background until I got a fade I was happy with.
From there i decided to add my background by stamping the numbers and dictionary page randomly in various distress inks.
Now to finish everything off i removed the mask and colored the acorn using a water brush and zig clean color markers. I also used black glitter pan pastels to edge around the acorn giving it a little bling.
Thank you for checking out this tutorial, I hope it inspires you to get creative today!
