Happy Mail – Mixed Media In Minutes

Two days ago I went to my post office box, expecting the drudgery of sorting through a week’s worth of junk mail & bills, when I spotted it. It had giant fuchsia polka dots, pink packing tape and it was mine, mine, all mine. Happy Mail for me from the lovely Ms. Micheal A. Hodge!!

I ripped it open with glee… junk mail and bills quickly forgotten… and inside I found a treasure trove of ephemera and misc. bits that she so thoughtfully sent me.

Having been inspired by my Happy Mail, I decided to enjoy a few minutes creating mixed media this morning. I started with a base of Dyslusions sprays and made some circles using the bottom of the bottles.

Then using some of the contents of the envelope, as well as some of my own bits, pens and Stabilo Pencil, I created this page in just 15 minutes before work.

Thank you, Micheal. Not just for the fantastic package of goodies, which I love, but also for the inspiration that you provided. Inspiration that had been lacking as of late.

Wishing you all a fantastic weekend full of color!
