Stamps

It's been a few days since I've posted anything so, here's my reply to one of the prompts in my Blistfully Art Journaling group. Enjoy! :)



I ended up ordering one of those giant ephemera packs on E-bay and included in that package was approximately 70 stamps. I've been dying to use them but hadn't come up with a reason or an idea to add them to my journal until now. I thought these looked old enough to be included in love letter/post cards. I imagined what they could have once been attached to..a love letter, an important letter, a random bill, or on junk mail. I settled on love letters since that's far more interesting. These are just three of the most interesting ones included in the pack.

Gorgeous page Toni!!! Love how you used the stamps. You could fill a whole journal with love letters and postcards like this! Leanne.

This is a great page. Wonderful for the stamp theme. I like how you smeared your writing on the quote.

I just LOVE this!! I'm pretty addicted to mail art anyway, so a little pile of postcards with pretty stamps on them really makes my heart beat a little faster. You did a great job with this!
