Mail Art from... Carl Baker, Nancy Bell Scott, Eraser Heed, Astrid

 From Canada, handmade and handpainted box by Carl Baker. Lovely!
Inspiring... for making more o.o.a.k. boekies!
Carl's Mail Art comes with an assignment. A mathematical piece of paper for me to assemble and decorate. Reminds me of frustrating folding classes at school. 
Luckily Carl did already the pre-folding, otherwise I might have a big, big problem.
Nancy Bell Scott, USA, sends this mix media collage, wrapped in - is it wax? - paper. 
Unwrapped, it looks like this. Nancy has a great website with stunning pieces. 
I thought she was a professional artist! Great work. 
Stamped envelop with nostalgic ski-ers from Sweden. 
Ooooh, where is the winter? I am still hoping for snow. 
In the right corner Eraser Heed left a message for the postman... uh stamping machine.
"Porto på baksidan"

 And the backside of the envelop looks like Mail Art as well. Beautiful old stamps.
They are not 'stamped' so the stamping machine can not read ;)
Inside the envelop handmade stamps with also nostalgic pictures. Wonder who these people are. 
My friend Astrid made this new year's card. The only handmade one I got this year so it is the best!
She is not a IUOMA-member but Mail Art it is!
The tangles and doodles look great. 

Thank you all for your Mail Art
