Hello all! There's a tiny pause in the madness of my 12 Tags of Christmas making and posting (seven days and tags down, five days and tags to go), and today I'm here with a sneak peek to tempt you over to the PaperArtsy blog. I've hardly put in an appearance there this year, so I was very happy to be able to squeeze in this inspiration project for the current Mail Art theme.
I've ended up with a trio of envelopes in the pursuit of my idea of a fantastical fabled land of riches for the letters to come from - for some reason, the phrase "the Golden Towers of Samarkand" kept popping into my head. I tried various degrees of gilded stamping, so do hop over there and see which is your favourite.
Thanks so much for stopping by today, and I'll see you again soon.
The cloud-capp'd towers, the gorgeous palaces,
The solemn temples, the great globe itself...
Prospero's lines from The Tempest by William Shakespeare
