Postage Themed Mixed Media Art with Birch Trees, Buffalo and Real Postage Stamps QMM003
This wooden postal themed mixed media wall art is 9" diameter, 3/4" thick and comes ready to hang on your wall. Some of the details you'll see are birch trees, a buffalo stamp, a Rural America train stamp and plenty of postal rubber stamp images in the background layers.
To read more about this and other postal themed art, please visit our blog "A postal themed idea to upcycle postage stamps and make Mixed Media Art". You'll learn that the upcycled birch tree greeting card, that is the center of this hand-drawn stamp, was mouth-painted by artist Jimmy Rodolfos and published by the Association of Handicapped Artists in Buffalo, NY on a set of stationery greeting cards I've had in my personal collection for years. Instead of sitting in a drawer, it is now honored by being part of a new piece of art. Additional art has been added to his painting to modify it into this unique piece.
Metal screw heads are placed on the corners of the greeting card to give it a rustic charm. The stamp edge drawn around it shimmers in gold dust. Blue iridescent squares and bronze dots are stenciled on with modeling cremes. They'll shine in the light as you walk around the room.
