For my second post this month, I wanted to include all of the above ideas in one piece of mail art. So, I made another post card that is quite dimensional, but it can be put in an envelope to be mailed to its rightful recipient.
Altered Pages: AP 2125 - Little Spring Birdies collage sheet; Tags Domestic Postcards
Art Anthology acrylics: Baby Blue Eyes; Mint Julep; June Bug
Leaky Shed chipboard: Tiaras and Teacups; Teacup
USArtQuest duo adhesive
Rubber stamp: Inkadinkado 60-00463 - flourish corner; Memory Box Miracles of Springtime
Sizzix die: Bird Branch (Tim Holtz)
Charcoal white pencil
Pearl paint pen (Viva Decor)
I first painted the unprinted side of my post card tag with June Bug, then edged it with Mix'd Media Leather ink and set aside.
Glue gilded crown to center of teacup and set aside.
Adhere brown card stock to light weight chipboard and cut out bird branch. Use whatever parts of the branch you like and those that fit best onto your post card.
AP 2125 - Little Spring Birdies collage sheet. Adhere red bird to branch with foam strip. Cut lower flowers and branch from around bird nest collage image. This will be placed over the tea cup for dimension. She photo below.
Place a tiny strip of foam tape at the bottom of the saucer and adhere to post card.
Slip teacup beneath saucer and adhere bird nest collage image before adhering tea cup.
The very last thing I did was to add a bit of Charcoal white pencil to the tree branches to give them a bit of detail and dimension. I also added flower centers using my pearl paint pen.
You will see a lot of beautiful artwork by the Altered Pages design team this month using this theme. I hope I have inspired you with my projects, and please be sure to visit each of our sponsors as well as the Altered Pages store, where you will find all of your supplies for these projects.
As always, I am so glad you stopped by today, and have a wonderfully creative week ahead.
