Description

Framed, Upcycled Postage Stamp Collage Art
A splash of rich, bohemian colour for your home decor, and a unique talking point!

* An original, 'imaginary landscape' collage of vintage postage stamps in stormy blues and verdant greens - you will receive the exact framed collage shown
* Painted off-white, solid wood frame (lightly distressed)
* Collage size = 15.2cm x 20.4cm = 6 x 8 inches
* Framed size = 22cm x 27.2cm = 8 3/4 x 10 3/4 inches (frame depth approx. 2cm)

This original, one of a kind collage of vintage world postage stamps has been applied onto an acid-free board, then placed inside the frame, which has a glass insert to protect the artwork, and standard strut-back (so that it can stand on any flat surface). There is also a picture hook fitting so that it can be hung, if preferred.

The collage features an abstract, imaginary landscape of stormy blue skies over a lush green horizon, within a solid wooden frame. The rich colours remind me of the skies and hills of the Lake District... A wonderful, eclectic gift full of character and history, perfect for the perpetual (or armchair!) traveller, letter writer, stamp collector, or any bohemian soul...

I have made every effort to represent the colours as closely as possible, but please remember that what you see may vary due to the differences in colour representation on different computer monitors/screens.

COLLAGE DETAILS
The postage stamps date from a wide range of periods, from the turn of last century up to the mid-1970s (or thereabouts). They still bear fragments of postmarks and other cancellation marks as a testament to their former active service for worldwide postal services, providing a real sense of history. Includes stamps from Australia, Austria, Botswana, Canada, France, Germany, Ghana, Great Britain, Guernsey, India, Italy, Kenya, Liechtenstein, Malawi, Malaysia, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Nigeria, Portugal, Romania, San Marino, Sweden, Switzerland, the United States, and Zambia.

FIRST CLASS COLLAGES
Every collage in the First Class series evolves from a very organic process: each postage stamp used is very carefully selected for colour and size to fit the random spaces and subtle colour progressions of your collage, creating an unrepeatable artwork, just for you. (You can read more about my process here: https://tanglecrafts.wordpress.com/process/ ) The stamps are glued into place with an acid-free, xylene-free adhesive then coated with a matt sealant, preserving some genuine fragments of postal history within a unique work of art..

The reverse of the collaged insert has been hand-stamped, then numbered & signed using an archival quality (iron gall) ink.

I love the notebook and it will be a great addition to my new traveler’s notebook cover. I loved the little newsletter included in the package. Thank you!

As a general guide to processing times:
- ready-to-ship items will be despatched within 3 days
- smaller custom orders within 5-7 working days
- larger custom orders will be proportionally longer 

I aim to despatch all orders promptly, but please order in plenty of time if you require something for a specific date. If you are outside of the UK, please err on the side of caution and allow at least a month in addition to processing times listed per item.
Unless an upgrade is purchased at checkout, your order will be delivered by:

- 1st class post within the UK (usually 1-2 working days)

Please note, delivery times can be longer at certain times of year (eg Christmas) when general volumes of post are higher.

Unfortunately there can occasionally be unforeseen delays within the various postal services, at any time of year. This is the exception rather than the rule, but please do allow up to a month for overseas delivery, before assuming lost.

Please contact me if you are worried about your delivery.
Please note, tracking is NOT included as standard with any order, due to the services offered by the Royal Mail. Proof of Posting is obtained for all items shipped.
