I was beginning to think that there wasn't going to be a post this week when Ashley Gaia let me know that my envelope to her arrived.
The Oyster catcher on the envelope matches her bird friend peeps who would get along well here as he apparently loves coffee. I had a good laugh when Ashely sent me a picture of her holding my envelope while wearing a T-shirt that matched almost perfectly. It was a strange and wonderful coincidence that I picked the most perfect envelope.
I included a bird stamp, a feather mixed media and a coloured feather, an origami crane, a coneflower silhouette and a 'tweet' tag. I also took some time to write and decorate a personal letter.
My last package to her contained mostly clippings and I wanted to create a little something original for her this time. I found a bunch of great bird pictures in magazines so I cut them out and glued them to a little booklet with various natural textures done in marker.
I am having a lot of fun finding paper for and making my own envelopes. I can see this becoming a constant step in my future mail art packages.
