If you remember from the sneak peek a few weeks ago, I purchased a bag of vintage photographs from the flea market and decided to use some of them for the mailart 365 project.
I started out with the idea to create outfits using my paper collection.
Then I had the idea to do more of the environment in paper. This piece is a very “Robayre” piece, obviously, with all the individual pieces of grass. It was time consuming, but I love how it came out.
Here is another detail
Another environment piece
Another wardrobe piece.
While I was working I suddenly thought of the artist Alyn Carlson and her lovely paper hats. I love her hats and immediately I knew some of my vintage folks needed to wear some fancy hats! I love how they came out and it was so much fun to create their hats.

Here’s a bathing beauty and her showy hat
and last but not least, a lovely pair and their extraordinary hats.
