Happy Mail Eclectic Collage

I loved this idea that Nina shared in her video this week – creating a collage from all the bits of ephemera that she received in happy mail. I never know what to do with it all – some bits and pieces do get used in future ATCs, etc but I never seemed to use it up at the rate I receive it. This project, therefore was an ideal way to get through loads in one go.

I played around with the layout, and tried to keep the colourway subtle, using shades of blue and green with pink accents. I adding some definition to the various pieces with a charcoal pencil, smudging with a paper stump. The only thing used that I didn’t receive in happy mail was the Kaisercraft ‘Life Story’ words stickers – everything else was gifted to me!

Can you spot something you sent to me?
