I have been having so much fun playing in my mixed media mess of fun in my studio lately! By day I am surrounded by fabric (which I LOVE) yet in the off hours I often mix it up with paper, paints, pens,etc.. I have been keep up (sort of) with the Documented Life Project and took a mixed media book making class with DJ Petit (3 days of fabulous).
Years ago (when AOL was the only email option) I participated in mail art. I loved it and saved some of it, as I didn't want to part with some cool art. I have seen the postcard swaps that iHanna has sponsored and was excited to be on top of things and sign up. I created 10 postcards and will mail them out tomorrow to recipients in the US and beyond. I will also be receiving 10 in my mailbox. Fun, right?!!
Here are my 10 postcards. I started with a whole bunch of Gelli prints. Some have collaged bits of paper and fabric - a few deli paper flowers. I added paints, markers, and some stitching. Hanna created a postcard template for the notes and addresses. Lot's of people will be making May 1st a happy mail day! Come back to see what mail arrives in MY box! (perhaps I'll get around to catching up with posts of my DLP project, too!)
