I have been working but I am slow at getting to the point where I feel comfortable sharing. It amazes me how long it takes me to send a piece of mail art out. This isn’t a quick process for me whatsoever. I would say that each postcard takes me at least 4 hours, if not more. Yes, I do work on more than one at a time. Here is a sense of my procedural layout:
My bureau drawer which resides in the same room as my art supplies. New “in process” mail art is interspersed with a few received treasures.
Move slightly to the right and my stamps and Chart Pak lettering are strewn on a chair.
I am totally digging my garage sale desk and its many compartments.
Continuing in the rightwards direction . . . I love my new sewing machine.
And bingo cards!
Even the floor begins to get covered when I am in full activity mode.
Sometimes I spread into the dining room . . .
And even into the kitchen to do packing tape transfers.
Results of my messy madness will follow. Here are a few to wet your appetite :)
For a blue swap for Ms. Lemon I went back to an old technique love of mine of just using old scraps that I insist on collecting. A purple card is currently in the mail too!
This one is a bit blurry. I decided to recycle Charlie’s postcard and send it to i am Rushmore who is a month older than me. Originally, we had conceived of a continued realtering. However, if she wants to keep it as is, I am fine with that. I kind of like it.
Yet another blurry photo. This happens when I go 3-D. In September, after hurricane Irene on the East Coast of the United States, my stepmother sent me a few samples of the detritus she found on the beach.
I sent her a few pieces back.
I like my circle series and look forward to making more. I also hope that I can get hold of more of those awesome butterfly stamps. The post office was out when I went last :(
This proved to be a rather long post.
