Mail art for Pen pals


Hello Friends ,
Mail art (also known as postal art and correspondence art) is a populist artistic movement centered on sending small scale works through the postal service. The simplest definition of mail art is that it is any art that’s created with the intention of sending it through the mail. Mail art can include postcards, faux postage, decorated envelopes, friendship books, and the ever popular naked mail. 

If you have to mail it to complete the creative experience, it’s mail art!

This is a Mail that went out to a pen pal , I made a Tall card for the first time and really loved the out come . Over the past few years, I have accumulated a lot of pattern paper pads, stamps, stickers ,ribbon, etc.So I have decided that this year, if I feel like I need new inspiration then I'm going to "Shop My Stash". Ever few weeks, I'm going to use my stamps, dies, embossing folders in rotation so that all get used. Also I will be buying only basic crafting stuff that too when required. I am doing 52weeks52crafts to keep myself accountable .


What all went in this mail you can see here -  An envelope filled with goodies with the tag friends 
an mini album 
an ATC and a Tall card 


The front of the envelope filled with goodies has a  mini card attached to it  saying cheers !!


This is a wonderful stamp set named once upon a time by clearly besotted .

The receiver loved each thing carefully chosen for her and that made my day !
