Happy Mail..Mail Art

 It's Friday, so some happy mail is going out. I am not doing heavily doodled envelopes now, because they take a lot of time. I realized I'd have to quit "happy mail" if it took that long to make an envelope. So, this week I painted the envelopes and did a quick stencil. I like them, and I think they'd make good collage bits.
The back side was messy after the painting. So when I cleaned off the stencils, I rubbed the ink right into the stencil again...lighter image, and looks kind of cool. Waste not,  want not.

In my opinion, these are simple yet beautiful. (and by simple I don't mean "easy"!). I love them. Definitely inspiring - I'm taking part of my first mail art at the moment, and I'm a little nervous of doing a "bad" job.

Thank you Carlie! I have been nervous about it too, because before I got in on this planner, I'd never done "happy mail." I sure like getting envelopes full of good stuff instead of bills!
