One more sun for Philippe Charron

A new sun for my friend Philippe, using a bag from “Nicolas”, the wine store company, and a stencil from Mike Deakin. The paper from the Nicolas bags is coated so the ink of the Sharpie had difficulties to soak into the paper. I’m therefore not completely happy with the result.

Received from Philippe Charron

Very nice item received from Philippe. The envelope is made from a paper pocket used by a restaurant called “Le Chaudron” (The cauldron) to present the napkin and the knife & fork. Philippe added “demi” (i.e. half) to the name of the restaurant to match the stamp!

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.
