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…
The Crafter’s Workshop and Canvas Corp Brands provided me with some product to create this project. This post also contains affiliate links. The opinions I share are solely my own.
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!
I used the Tile Mania stencil and black acrylic paint to add some visual texture to the background.
I then added Shimmery Goodness through the Stained Glass Daisies stencil…1) to push back the black pattern in the background, and 2) to show me where to add the black marker in the next step.
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!
