when i was nine and the flowers were pink... {assemblage stationery stories}

Out of stock

these are the future heirloom letters that are tucked away and read over and over.... tell the story on your heart. 

each art collage is a hand made assemblage from my collection of ephemera, european papers, flora & fauna field guides, wallpaper, vintage stamps,  handmade lace, maps, trims, stitching, pressed flowers...
no two are exactly alike. 

this assemblage stationery is a lovely gift where thoughts and art meet on the page. 
charming vintage aesthetic for anyone who loves flowers, gardening, nature. 

set contains:
a total of 3 pages.
1 collage page + 2 blank sepia pages
envelope + address label + closure sticker
paper size: european A4 (21x29.7cm or 8.27×11.69in) 
collage size approx  (5x5.5in) + a generous sized pocket with 2 vintage style tags (a perfect spot to add an extra note, more ephemera, a tea sachet, etc)
also included: some extra ephemera to decorate the envelope if you wish to take your mail a step further. 
all you need is a bit of glue. 

each set includes 3 pages of hand dyed stationery with plant based dyes....  
dreamy blends of nordic wildflowers, midsummer rose petals, leaves, berries, birch bark...
a faint scent of nature lingers on the pages.

due to the dye process each page has a fantastic crispy feel, varying tones and lovely distress spots.
all the variations add to the vintage aesthetic and character of the papers.
extra blank pages available for the long winded letter writer (like me!)

if you are planning to use in a typewriter leave me a note otherwise the assemblage collage will be mounted on stationery. 
the collage is not flexible and too thick rendering damage to the art work if put through a typewriter.  
you can mount with adhesive of preference once you've set words to stationery.
