Going postal

I haven’t made mail art in ages. Too long really. I’m doing a freebie event at the gallery about mail art. A drop in make and take so I dug out my collage supplies and put a pile of samples together which I will mail out after the drop in takes place. Playful random collage […]

Junk Mail redo

Once in a while you get a nice, heavyweight piece of junk mail you want to redo and send along to a friend.  Well, a friend sent me one and I decided to re-do it and send it back. (That friend might figure out who she is, so I better get this in the mail […]

You Send Me

You send me – postal style.   Collage for AJJ from my stash of postal goodies.  And speaking of sending, better raid my stash and get some mail art out there or my mailbox will start to cry.

Tiny Bits of Art to Mail

Farmhouse rehab has made me remiss in responding to my fabulous mail art friends, so I stole some time yesterday to put together some post cards.  I happened to have a box of Project Life cards in a 4×6 size, so with some magazine papers, collage bits, washi tape,  glue stick and some scissors, a […]

Mail Art — Inventing Spring

If Spring won’t come to me then I will come to Spring.  Making post cards to celebrate the burst of color that is Spring.  Using gelli printed papers, leftovers, magazine bits, rubber stamps and permanent stamping inks.  A riot of color spills from my work surface ready to bloom into mail boxes everywhere.  Now to […]
