This month challenge at Mixed Media World is mail art.
I love the blue and red slashes around airmail envelopes, I don't know why but i love how it looks. Maybe it that whole remembering a time gone by, I use to love getting letters in the mail back before emails, texting and long distance phone calls were a big deal you didn't not make long distance phones calls unless it was super important. I use to walk down to the end of the driveway put my letter in the mailbox with 35 cents on top for a stamp. Who didn't have a pen pal, sometimes i would even write my friends letters during the summer months. We lived on farm and i really didn't see my friends over summer, this was back in the day when parents didn't take kids to town you played with your siblings or the neighbour's kids. Anyways that was long winded here is my take
air mail first with white gesso, then painted with steampunk magical and gold paint. The steampunk magical is fantastic it looks very distress with several colors- red, brown, gold highlights.
