A friend at work likes to send postcards weekly to the same person. When she shared this with me, I came up with the fun idea to create a painting that she could send in sections, like a puzzle. Once all the pieces arrived, her friend would have a painting to frame! Below, I’ve shared how I created the mail art puzzle…

Stencils are from the Crafter's Workshop.AtopSerenityHill.comTo 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.
