Mail Art

This is another one of my play pages with lots of random colour , painted, splashed, sprayed etc.
 I think you get the idea and it was an inky messy play day.
Next up  came a couple of post cards, again an assorted selection of stamps, 
but I could make out the maker of the arty woman with the letter box[ Stampington],
 the Scribbly Bird is from a Dina Wakley set.
To add texture  out with the stencils,  here again it is hard to say the maker as most don't put it on the stencil and the packages have long since been thrown away.
When  these dried out I added some gold and silver gilding wax.

The prompt  at Journal 52
 week 28 was,' Mail Art', 
I am a few weeks behind and well out of the prompt order, 
but no one minds and we all enjoy sharing the pages.

I will also pop over and join the fun at
  Art Journal Journey
where the theme for July is Post and Postage.

Thank you for calling to see what I have been making.
Your comments are always appreciated.
