Remember a few weeks ago when I received my "Good Mail Day" from Rinda? Well I have been floored by this book and I love what's in it. See all my little post it notes?... so far those are the pages I want to scan! (I'm only half way through the book :)
One of the chapters is called "Judging the Post by Its Cover: Decorated and Illustrated Envelopes". It asks you what sorts of things does the person receiving the mail art like; is there a special event coming up? Having just finished She Art, I was still feeling a bit inspired from that class, and thought I would try out those techniques on the envelope. A good friend of mine celebrates her birthday next week and she loves to travel with her hubby and adores pink. So I used some of Tim's distress inks and stamps to reflect her interests.
I'm not finished with this book :) Sorry, but I still have lots to take in before I'm ready to send it off on it's "Pass the Book" journey. I will keep you "Posted" (no pun intended:)
Do you send decorated mail? I would love to hear about it.
