Mail Art from... Sherri Ayers, Rachel Carter and Amy Morton

Mail Art trice from the USA!

Sherri Ayers sends a big envelop with 'odds & ends'. What a lovely surprise. 
The old stamps are great. Might be torn out pages from a very old stamp album... and they would look good in a handmade bookie ;)

***
Water colour postcard with blue layers from Rachel Carter. 
It was sent without envelop and it did arrive in perfect state.

***
Amy Morten's envelop is Mail Art in itself. 
Included is one of the first of a 'iphone digital photograpy serie'. 
Rachel writes she has learned to enjoy little happy monsters. 
That's good news!

Now this 'iphone digital photograpy piece' is taken with my iphone ;)

Thank you all for your Mail Art

Birdy Boekie for Stripygoose



Stripygoose is a Mail Artist from London, United Kingdom.
She has started on her second #365 Mail Art - challenge.
The second series is about birdies.
Her funny name inspired me to make a bookie and - a while longer ago - a collage.

Mail Art from... Ilknur Akman, 5Blanks, Valentine Mark Herman and Raphael'L


First Mail Art received from Turkey! 
Great combination of a picture (from a magazine?) and drawing by Ilknur Akman.
Nice shapes.
Just visited Ilknur's blog and these nice shapes are her signature.
Also she invites me to participate in an
International Mail Art project 'I'm a walnut tree'.

***
And another invitation for a Mail Art call. I've got homework now, hihi. 
These pieces are from Cristina Blank, Germany. 
The little fellow reminds me of a 'Gut'n Abend - MainzelMänchen'.
Good memories.

Angels & Demons who think they are a wallnut tree!
That might be my theme for both projects. 
To be continued. 

***
The Mail Artist from Sigean, France, sends this altered flyer. 
Remarkable reflection of the sculpture. 
And Val, your Mail Art was not photograped on a bath mat ;)
 
***
Awesome collage by Raphael'L USA, with 3D effect.
On the back it reads that on friday (in january) the big 
Wave Surf Contest will be held at Half Togu Bay. 
At the moment it is Winter Olympics and surf contest reminds me of summer.
One globe, different seasons eh!
