The Three Muses Challenge - Mail Art


The theme for this week is MAIL ART. I had a lot of fun making a decorated envelope as a sample for the challenge but any type of mail art is welcome. So bring out your stamps and your postmarks and your mail ephemera and show us what you can do with them.

Bev will be along soon to post her sneak peek for next week.

Credits for my envelope are on my BLOG

  1. Ohhhh, Marie! Your mail art is wonderful and fit for an Empress!!! (I couldn't resist. You've used this image to perfection.) Great challenge, and I'm so happy I have a chance to play.
