Mail this week

I’ve been getting some pretty neat mail lately. I’ve also been working hard, creating some nice pieces to send out. Here’s what I’ve got to share:

For a postcard swap I mailed in a few postcards with a map theme. Here was one I made.

In return I got some neat ones:

I’ve been motivated to make art with postage stamps so I also made a few postcards with stamps:

These I made with postage stamps and a type-writer rubber stamp:

And here’s one I received:

Here are some really cool envelopes I received. This one is made from a junk mail catalog page.

This one is from my creative friend Pamela. I have to read up on where she gets her template from. I love how the ice cream float stamp goes with the 60s yearbook theme.

She sent something colorful inside.

Recently some art friends and I have come into a bounty of cancelled stamps. At next month’s meeting of correspondence art enthusiasts we are going to make more postcard art with stamps. I’m very much looking forward to that.

One thought on “Mail this week

  1. Glad you liked the yearbook envelope — I don’t use a template. Just fold my own envelopes. Quick and easy. I detailed how on my blog (search handmade envelopes in the search box). I have more to send you — just have to figure out what to put inside!
