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 🙂
Wow, we’re having a bit of a heatwave here in the UK and I’m having trouble keeping up with things. I’m writing my postcards but not managing to share them.
These are very recent arrivals in my mailbox.
These first two are from China and Russia.
These are from the UK and Belarus and unbelievably the first one is a sand sculpture, Wow!
This last one is from Tina in Taiwan and she has send me this lovely handmade card. I especially love handmade! 🙂
Now I’m going to have a very cold drink 🙂
I recently did a painting using triangles and that has spring boarded over to my mail art 🙂
This postcard is to Susanne in Germany
and this is to Nancy in USA.
This mail is to Iryna in Belarus. You can see my painting here as I’ve made an art stamp with it!
Happy Mail 🙂
