are just the best mail one can receive.
Well, that's as far as I'm concerned it is. My postcard mail art has led me to wanting to play with arty names and addresses. After posting a couple of first envelopes on flickr...
... Carol found and led me to the blog of Jean Wilson, pushing the envelopes Jean's envelope art is phenomenal and the ultimate inspiration. Jean has the talent to design an envelope based on the design of the postage stamp. I couldn't even begin to do that! I just add the postage stamp as added envelope decoration.
It was Jean's blog where I was shocked to learn that you could place a postage stamp almost anywhere on the envelope! Can you believe it? I always thought they HAD to be in the upper right corner. Carol's envelope was my very first moving of the postage! FUN FUN FUN! And scary too. There was a brief visual of the post office slapping a big ole red inked stamp "undeliverable as stamped!"
And I dared to do it again!
It's kind of a bummer blocking out names and addresses to protect the innocent. That takes away from the effect as a whole, but, it can't be helped.
Carol oh, sweet Carol, sent ME an arty envelope!
And that's how I know this is the best mail to receive!
Thanks so much, Carol! That was an AWESOME Mail Day!
Wishing everyone a Good Mail Day!
