This week has ended with lots of parties and celebrations, with Union Jacks coming out of our ears. And, thankfully, my mailbox has woken from its slumber, with a number of exciting and inspirational pieces arriving. So without further ado…
Jane Smith in the US was the recipient of one of my embroidered cards. I’ve been getting back into these lately, and have a bit of a waiting list of people who’ve requested one, so you’ll be seeing more of these soon.
Jeannine Saylor sent me a sweet envelope full of Mail Art supplies all the way from Canada, and those colourful little circle stickers have already been put to good use on a few outgoing postcards.
Janine Weiss, like me, enjoys trying new things with her Mail Art, and this time she sent to me a painted card with hand stitching and felt buttons. Really bright and tactile.
Katerina Nikoltsou, known for her ‘bits of Greek blue’, added a little UFO this time – a photo of some pottery that almost resembles a cute little face.
Carina Granlund sent a wonderful metallic collage like a broken mirror. Really inspiring, and the silver scalpel wrappers were a nice touch!
A much richer mail art week than last week, and I’ve been making the most of the long bank holiday weekend by making lots of replies that I’ve been owing to friends all over the place. Postie’ll be busy on Wednesday!
