That's right, celebrating 60 years?.......NO 60 Links to Mail Art.
I warn you, don't go over there unless you are at a place where you can immediately make some art. The inspiration from all of these links will make you explode if can't release it some where.
Michelle shares some of the most amazing creative ideas. And Oh how I love her stamps.
And I'll tell you, I shake with a twitch now till I can take an internet break and get a shot of the beautiful rocking art linked to this crusade
I have been able to try some digital embellishing of envelopes at lunch at the office. I love learning Photoshop and playing around with all of the different brushes I have collected but the colors are not as vibrant off the old office printer.
A lot of the mail art linked is stencils and spray paint and I fully intend on breaking into that over the week end. While reading the other artists posts about mail art, I found that some are also into adding self portrait stencils into their art journals. And this being a most generous talented group of artists, they share how to make your own self portrait stencils using Photoshop. So I had to give it a whirl.
Now all I have to do is print it out on a file folder and cut it out to use it as a stencil at home.
The zine is full of great drawings of construction equipment and the envelope is decorated with his hand carved eraser stamps (add that to my list of "I have got to Try that, too") complete with a Star Wars Postage Stamp. My DS went crazy.
