The Three Muses Challenge - Mail Art

It's Wednesday morning here in Western Australia so it is time for our challenge.
This week's theme is MAIL ART which can be anything you make of it. Old letters, postcards and cards, and stamps from far off places are so full of nostalgia for us and it is a delicious exercise to use them in artwork. My problem was knowing when to stop so my collage is a wee bit busy!
We can't wait to see how you use your "stash" of mail ephemera.
The lovely Miss Beverly will be along soon to post her sneak peek for next week.
Credits for my collage are HERE

  23. Sorry, I posted the wrong link--it WAS to Sunday Postcard Art, but it was the WRONG postcard.
    I am SO techno-challenged...
    I'm getting a new computer for Christmas, and will finally be able to start a blog
    of my own.
    I must be the last person in the world not to have one.
