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 few postcards were prepped to go out in the mail.  It’s amazing what you can create on a whim with little time…


Hope to make some more today…be careful all you folks in the Eastern US.  Tropical storm Arthur looks like a doozy.  Stay safe.

    Wonderful colors and textures going on in your bits and pieces there Corinne.
    I really feel for all those people (and the businesses) that planned a fun 4th at the beach.
    Have a great celebration

    Looks so wonderful, my eyes are dancing and my heart is smiling looking at this! May I ask how does a person get involved in the mail art? Happy 4th to you and your hubby and furry family!

    What a really good idea. One thing (among many) that I like about your art is the enjoyment you obviously get from it.
