Imitating Nick Bantock Mail Art

It´s always difficult for me if I`m challenged to mimic someone else´s artistic style. Shelly asked for Nick Bantock styled tip-in pages with a typical mail art look, and they have to be made on book pages in a 4 x 6 format which makes an 8 x 6 spread in the end. I´ve only used a few of Nick Bantock´s own rubber stamps but tried to mostly feature other collage elements and stamps. I´ve left open one line of the original book text in each spread, and that´s how each spread is titled: God speaks in her (above) and Something rare (below). These will go out to Florida next week, so they´re not only travel themed, but will also go on a far journey themselves.
And as both spreads contain pieces of maps, they also go with this month´s Art Journal Journey challenge theme "Maps".
