Snail Mail | Dossier Challenge Part 2


The 2 pages I decorated for the dossier I mentioned in my previous post {here} were done in a mix of bright colors and layers. I applied Montana Gold spray paint to the pages which I initially bought for a woodworking project I have on the side. I decided to try it on the paper to add color, it worked.

The kokeshi doll was a collage I compiled digitally then printed on my inkjet, cut out by hand, and glued to the page.
I later filled out my pages with my answers to the question asked: What are your guilty pleasures?
To answer it partially here (because I had many), one of them happens to be magazines. And I mean printed magazines out of paper. Shame on me I should be saving a tree and reading them digitally, but I can't help the feel of turning a page made of paper. Thus it is my guilty pleasure. I love everything from Somerset Life by Stampington & Company to Mollie Makes, Martha Stewart Weddings to Harper's Bazaar, Mental Floss to Mother Earth News, and don't get me going on international magazines... I wish I could get my hands on Family Living from Stockholm, hej future snail mail friend in Sweden wanna do a magazine exchange?..he he.

Hi there! Photography and art featured on this blog, unless where noted, came from my camera and were made or styled by my hands. You may not use my photos for profit or on commercial websites, but we might be able to work something out with a dozen chocolate macarons, and a juicy deal. Do not remove my watermarks or copyright markings from my photos (please see previous sentence). I won't bite, well unless you infringe on my copyright. But really, send me an email, I'm pretty nice. The snail mail on my blog includes my mail or the work from other artists and pen friends. I do my best to give everyone credit. But, in the case where I have missed the proper credit please contact me to address it. If you would like to re-blog or pin any of my original works please be the awesome person that you are and give me a shout out a.k.a. proper credit, and link it back here. Speaking of links, I do on occasion link out to other sites, however I am not responsible for the content you find on those sites. Sometimes clicking on a link I’ve provided may be a link to a site that will give me a small commission if you buy something from them. Which means that I might get paid (hopefully not in gum) if you click on that link, whoo-hoo. Reason why I’m telling you is because I want to be honest with you and frankly, because it’s illegal not to. That said, I promise to use any affiliate commissions earned for good cause: like stationery hauls and lattes. Thank you kindly, Merissa
