Mail art #3



My third mail art arrived! Here it is before the post office. Based on the Valentine theme , it included red threads, chocolate and a card. On the front I used a chart from La fee Rie with threads from The Gentle Art , (Be mine, Cupid's Arrow, Candle Light, Red Roses and Purple Passion) On the back I used an old freebie from Vermillion. This mail art went to Mari in Finland. Mail art is F-U-N!

Love that mail art! Do they actually post it to get a postmark?

Hi Lisa,
yes you actually get it stamped at the post office and send it like an ordinary letter. First time to do it hurts and you cringe along with the post office worker. Afterwards you love seeing it stained with the ink,because that is what mail art is, the ink proves that it survived the journey.:)
