Outbound Mail Art: A Little of This and That

You’ve seen some of my recent mail art in other posts… A Piece of the Puzzle series, FISH mail art and Trash Bubbles. I won’t bother to post those again. These are recent pieces that didn’t make their way into the blog, just in case you wondered if I’d done anything else recently. 😀

LYA 2016 Envie 2 Kat Sloma

This was the mail art envie for my Liberate Your Art  swap offerings. It went to Kat Sloma, hostess of the swap. 😀

Shadow of a Girl/Hiding in the Shadows 2016 Tag Swap Scrap Proj. to April Cole

This was a piece created from the left-over scraps from a recent tag swap. The leader of the group sponsoring the swap sent out a little something to all of the participants. Of course, I simply had to respond in kind. 😀

Milkweed Moth

Milkweed Moth was sent to Judy Staroscik, a fellow mail artist who’d been waiting on return mail from me for some time. It was created from a hodge-podge of scraps that had been floating around. 😀

Corrugated Rounds At Play to Carina Granlund

Carina Granlund is another mail artist who hadn’t seen mail from me in quite some time. I knew I’d yet to send her any of my black or corrugated mail, so I went with this piece, Corrugated Rounds at Play. I wonder how it will fare the international post? Only time will tell. 😀

Eduardo Munez Project Envie

And last, but not least, this envelope was my offering for the Eduardo Munez project. I am eager to see how the film turns out. 😀

Happy Trash to you, until we meet again!

ICAD 2014 Week 2!

Weekend get-aways really have a way of thwarting one’s efforts to stick to the challenge. The second week found me already lagging behind. I took any opportunity I could to catch-up, even going so far as to delay my Monday post ’til Tuesday.

A Cigar Band Sampler

A Cigar Band Sampler

Day 9 was a cigar band collage. I worried, needlessly, that I may not have collected enough to cover my 4×6 card. I really liked the way it turned out.

Big Pharma

Big Pharma

‘Big Pharma’ was a collage of prescription label bits and some medical security envelope print. Not my best work, but the point was to poke fun of the prescription drug industry.

Green Stamps Benjamin Franklin

Green Stamps Benjamin Franklin

The ‘Green Stamps Benjamin Franklin’ card was strictly for fun. I combined coordinated bits of this and that to give it a vintage feel and yet keep to the S&H Green Stamp colors.

Liars' Club

Liars’ Club

‘Liars’ Club’ began with an old newspaper clipping and grew to include tape, a stamped image and vintage advertisements layered on a 4×6 index divider.

Scrap Work

Scrap Work

‘Scrap Work’ was a fun way to use up bits of paper I’d found scattered on my table top.

Security Flowers

Security Flowers

Experimenting with security envelope print as an art supply gave life to ‘Security Flowers.’

It's Black & White

It’s Black & White

The work with security envelope print continued in ‘It’s Black & White.’

That brings me through Day 15. I’m still down by two days and hope to be fully caught up by next Monday’s ICAD post. Wish me luck! I’m gonna need it!

Happy Trash to you, until we meet again!
