Address Label LANDSCAPE design

Some charities will send out free address labels to help increase awareness of their cause or as a small token in hopes to get you to donate to them. I have accumulated literally hundreds of address labels and although I still enjoy writing letters and sending actual cards to friends and family I know I will never use them all. Being the "collector" that I am, I couldn't bear to dispose of them either, so I decided to use them to create a landscape.

Using a medium for an art project that most of us would normally throw away in our landfills is wonderful. I also LOVE this picture.
Very creative! Excellent job.
