Becky here today to share something new to me...
I say "sort of" because it's not the traditional Mail Art that you would trade with someone in a swap, like ATC's. But rather a box that I completely decorated as part of a submission to Somerset Studios!
You may remember the sneak peek I gave you a couple weeks ago of my Gypsy Art Book that will hopefully be in the shop as a kit soon...

Well, I decided to submit the book to Somerset Studios Magazine!
And I thought to myself, "What better way to grab their attention than a painted box in the mail with my book inside?!" So, I hopped in the car & visited the local PO for a box & to make sure the USPS doesn't have issues with completely covering the box with paint! "Nope! Not a problem at all," she said!
Here are a couple pix of the completed box...
The process was completely messy, so I didn't take pictures along the way, sorry! But, along with many of my go-to painting supplies, I also used my Gelli Plate, a new floral stencil from the shop & of course, my Gypsy image! You can see more pix on my personal blog with a little more explanation of how I went about it all.
That's it for me today!
