Take a Word: MAIL ART

One of my favorite themes--create an imaginary embellished piece of mail! And I've used some of my favorite types of images--vintage circus posters and giraffes. The vintage poster images are from the Ringling Museum online website. The labels are from JSIM. The giraffe in the upper left, on the return address label, is my own creation. I know, I'm quirky, but it seems to be a requirement for us creative types! :)
