Hello everyone, Barbara here with my first post for April. This month, Altered Pages is cross-promoting with Unruly Paper Arts, an inspirational and informative blogozine. This month's theme is mail art, using their creative prompt with the theme Teacups and Tiaras. We are also cross-promoting with Leaky Shed, a company that makes the most fabulous laser cut chipboard pieces, to show off our mail art using their chipboard tiaras and teacups.
You will see a lot of beautiful artwork by the Altered Pages design team this month using this theme. Here is the creative prompt for April.
So, in keeping with this theme, here is my mail art project, which can also be viewed on their blog e-zine by clicking here:
