PaperArtsy 2016 Topic 24 - Mail Art

I'm here with the final PaperArtsy topic which is Mail Art. I missed the previous three challenges - but wrote a short post about them if anyone's interested.

With this topic, I knew I wanted to incorporate envelopes on my journal page rather than decorate an actual one.

I created a template for the envelopes and cut them out of cardstock. I didn't want the page to get too bulky so I only cut the parts/flaps that would show.

Here are some details. I used Infusions and Distress inks for the background. I did some stamping and also some stencilling.

Finally, I added a tag (I believe this is a Stampendous stamp - I had the tag all stamped and inked in my stash) and a quote from Tim Holtz's phrases sticker sheet.

So, that's it for this year. My PaperArtsy Journal 2016 is (almost) finished - I still have one page (or maybe two) to work on. When I'm done, I plan to record a flip-through video and post it on my YouTube channel.


  1. Love the deep colours of your page, lovely stamping too... Can't wait to see the video, this journal will be a great keepsake as well as a techniques compendium.
