Exchange with Phillip Lerche

Phillip sent me this fantastic paper bag. The bag is wonderful, the postmark is wonderful. Perfect item!

As an answer, I send him this envelope made from a vintage paper bag. The “Mammouth stores” were big supermarkets. The brand has disappeared so I guess the bag is a sort of collector… I had this one since ages and it was a bit torn so I thought I could make good use of it in making an envelope. I added some prehistoric themed stamps and washi tape.

Mini Mission Inspiration: Fearless

For September, the prompt for the Mini Mission Inspiration from Mike Deakin was Fearless.

Here is the envelope I have made.

Exchange with Jocelyne Depierre

Jocelyne sent me this envelope made from a bag and illustrated with the letter V

As an answer, I made this envelope on the theme “Thailand”. I’m not very familiar with Thai art but I see it full of gold, so the background of the envelope is painted using a stencil and gold paint. I know this is not so obvious from the scan.

Sunflowers sent to Elena

A collage made on a brown paper bag envelope. The sunflowers come from a collage sheet I got on Mike Deakin’s website.

Received from David Stanley Aponte

David sent me so many goodies that I could not scan all of them. Here is only a selection.

More Starbucks bags

I told you there would be more. So here they are, more envelopes made from the Starbucks bags I got from Japan.

Paper bags from Christiane and Uwe

Two recent items sent by Christiane who uses bags and souvenirs she has brought with her from her last holidays in Sydney.

And some more paper bags from Uwe. The first one is an airline sick bag. I’m glad to see I’m not the only weirdo using this type of bag as envelope.
