In addition to painting, I decided to try some mail art. I have been reading a blog called Mail Me Some Art for some time now. The blog is put together by someone from Massachusetts, like me. I have been lurking around and trying to get up the guts to take part in one of Karen's swaps. I decided to submit a few envelopes for one of her last swaps. They were REALLY basic but I figured if I got my foot in the door I might be inspired to try another swap.
So, I did. This swap was for postcards featuring tape. I have a whole bunch of washi tape that I just stare at wishing I could make something pretty. Here's what I came up with:
My favorite is the black and white one. Advice- I was thinking of holding the love one vertically and adding a heart in a contrasting color. Should I add it or leave it like it is? Or even a black outline of a heart? I'm afraid of adding something and then hating it.
As for incoming mail, I received this delightful card from Germany. I wish my mailbox was as cute as this one!
