Going Postal


I was a postage stamp collector from way back in my youth, and while searching for ephemera for my Paper Dolls I came across my stamp collection. Some of it came from my dad and granddad but there is a lot of an eighties feel to the stamps in the collection. There was a catalogue from 1936 even.



I have managed to combine some stamps into my latest range of dancers with more to follow.


Sometimes it's good to never throw stuff away. That way you can say your art is going Postal!

I have just found your blog & visited your etsy store. I just love the Paper Doll Dancer with the use of postage stamps. Sooo clever!
