Mail Art Swap
Mail Art Envie
Back of Envie
US Postage Stamps
I always see the mail art swaps posted, but I can't draw or paint to save my life. So, even though they looked like a lot of fun, I've always skipped them. Not this time though! The theme was hearts, which is one of my favorite subjects...I just couldn't pass this one up. You had the option to use any medium or mixed media.
I made the main envie (envelope) out of black and white scrapbook paper and then embellished with inks, stamps and lots of different size punched hearts. Now, I just have to figure out what to put in it! I bought the heart postage stamps just a couple of weeks before I found this swap. Lucky hu? I just love these!
My biggest concern is getting it through the mail machines in one piece. My post office always seems to have a problem with regular envies, so I'm not sure what might happen with this one. I thought about stamping the mail art envie and having them post mark it, then putting it in a larger envie to actually send. Not quite sure what I'm gonna do yet, I'll have to see when I get there. Either way its sent, I hope my assigned partner will be pleasantly surprised!
