I thought it might be a fun idea to send a painting through the mail but with a twist. The painting would arrive in sections, like a puzzle. Once all the pieces arrived, the recipient would have a painting to frame! Below, I’ve shared how I created my mail art puzzle…
To make it really easy to mail my stenciled painting, I chose to work on the back of the Black & Ivory Postcard sheet from Canvas Corp. Add in two 12×12 stencils (Tile Mania and Stained Glass Daisies) and I was all set with my design.
I created the background with Neocolor 2 crayons and a baby wipe. Super quick and easy!
Using the lines left behind by adding in the Shimmery Goodness, I outlined the design with a black marker. Then I added white marker lines on top to break up all the black.
In order to visually pop parts of the design, I used Inktense pencils and a waterbrush to add brighter color to the flowers and leaves.
The final step was to cut the 12×12 sheet into the individual postcards. Now I just have to decide who to send my puzzle painting to!
