I’ve had this little Owl block for quite a while and was inspired this week to make some mail art with it. I made postcards, ATC’s and faux postage stamps. Sometimes I really struggle for inspiration for mail art, so I was glad to create this array of work.
These are all ready to go, one could be dropping through your mail box very soon 🙂
Thursday is generally my mail day, so here is my outgoing mail.
A letter to Hanna in Sweden
and mail art for Richard in France.
Also I usually send two postcrossings per week and these are to Laura in Germany and Penny in the US, both cards I designed for our Active Fakenham Group.
I’ve just sent out my first lot of mail art this year.
This is a postcard I sent locally to my friends Emma and Martin as a little surprise.
These postcards were in response to the last Ihanna postcard swap I did for people who put their addresses on the postcards they sent to me, thanks Theresa, Libby and Gloria in USA and also to Melita in Germany.
This card is to Andrew in Cheltenham, England who I met on our road trip in November. He wanted to know what mail art was, so as it’s the first day of this years ‘International Correspondence Letter Writing Month’, I’ve sent my first days mail to him.
A good start to February I think! 🙂
Even though I have the annual Christmas cold, I’ve been enjoying sending out my Christmas mail. I’ve had one of my paintings made into our Christmas card this year, sent with my art stamps attached. I’ve included some other bits and pieces to my regular mail pals 🙂
It was time for the Autumn ‘IHanna DIY postcard swap’ this month. All participants send out 10 handmade postcards; these are the ones that I sent out
and these are what I’ve received so far.
I do love taking part:-)
I loved getting this birthday Mail Art ready to send off to my friend in Hertford UK. I made it with acrylic paint and collage and a Gelli plate printed recycled envelope.
I like to help people feel special! 🙂
This is such a great thing to be part of.
Hand make 10 postcards and send them out to 10 beautiful people whose addresses you’ve been given.
And then what happens? You get 10 beautiful handmade cards in return. It’s win win. 🙂
Can’t wait till next time!
Many of you I expect have seen that I make art stamps (faux postage stamps) I made some more the other day that I’m particularly pleased with! What do you think? 🙂
Here are some New Year letters I’ve sent out, with my own homemade stamps.
All very pink and sent out with love 🙂
