I was inspired by a book called "Good Mail Day" to create an art journal where the pages are photocopies of letters and envelopes. I am lucky enough to have saved all the letters which my husband and I sent to each other during the three years that I was in law school in Massachusetts, and he was doing graduate work in California and New York. For the page above, I copied one of his letters as the background. I stamped some flowers and postoids on it and then journaled on some artist tape. I also made a background page by copying a bunch of envelopes:
I added a picture of us (circa the early 80's), some stamping and some journaling. It's a fun project so far, and I'll be posting some more pages tomorrow, but with love letters from a different couple . . . any guesses as to who that would be?
