Lady of Letters, Part V

A Stamp's Silent Song
what stories do 
you bring?
The back of one of my postcards
A postage stamp
can be the most
stunning image on 
a letter sometimes.

When I began my postcard
series I wanted to use my
own art work for 
the postage stamps.
I ordered mine online from

A selection of international postage stamps I used for my handmade papers
I have been collecting 
postage stamps
for years and I have been
looking for ways to incorporate
them into my art.

Handmade papers with postage stamps and thread
has a really nice selection
of cancelled stamps 
from all over the world.
They are reasonably priced!
