So to start I have a HUGE backlog of mail art goodness to mention, beginning with a wonderful zine that came to me from Sewon who keeps up the most beautiful Maps and Fragments blog. Her zine is full of her photographs, which I just adore. Somehow she manages to capture so many stories in a single frame...and now I have pages of stories all wrapped up in one lovely book!
I received a little bit of spring in an envelope from Jaime! And it was a welcome treat!
This stationery blew my mind! Love it so much.
Phillipa, I received two beautiful cards...that both look hand printed. One was of the type writer above, which just makes me long for the click clacking of keys...
Anika sent me an incredible package. It was FULL of beautiful things. Including a piece of her art, which I find so interesting. Her experiments with patterns and shapes are facinating to me. I made a collage of a few of the things that stumbled out of the envelope she sent me. For some reason the collection of colours and textures reminds me of the beach at sunset...running in sand as the landscape changes in big sweeping gestures right before our eyes.
Jeannine from Saylor Made also sent me a beautiful package, full of other little packages. It always feels like her mail takes me on a tiny journey, through images and textures. These round circles came tumbling out of a brightly coloured orange envelope. They looked like ideas caught in the wind to me...so I tried to illustrate that concept above.
Lindsay sent me these paper snowflakes...I love them! I want a room full of them. I want to dance through streams of paper snow flakes with playing a loud love anthem! I'm pretty sure Linsday could make that happen!
Tanya's simple yet sophisticated Valentine was just so perfect....i think i may need to frame it! And Jaime's embroidered heart made me swoon!
Jessica! I love the collage and altered postcard. But I especially love the 'oh hey'. Don't you? There is something so humourous about that statement with this image. It keeps me chuckling.
Kye sent me an entire TUBE of papers...incluing vintage wallpaper...which I don't even know how to start using...so many ideas. She also sent me on old map which I couldn't resist using on a little character. Thank you so much Kye, your generosity is out of this world.
Well that sums it up for now...next it's my turn...I think Jaime's spring letter has stirred an idea in my brain for a new envelope diorama...and possibly a zine...Happy Spring to all!
