I've been scanning away, trying to capture some of the goodness arriving in my mail box. First though, I did get a nice piece of electronic mail a few weeks ago when I learned from my publisher at Kids Can Press, that Planet Ark has been short-listed for a "Green Book Award" from The Nature Generation.
|Envelope made of a page from a typewriter manual, washi tape, slide holders with vintage typography.|
|I thought this envelope was the perfect one to hold a strip of stamps Canadian authors that I've been holding on to for a long time.|
Here is some other mail art that I made while on our trip. It was a bit random, using bits and pieces I found along the way. And I made pretty good use of the pharmacy label dispenser I scored on the first day of the holiday at an antique mall in Port Angeles. Be prepared for lots of "May Cause Drowsiness" stickers.
|My beloved chimeras yet again.|
And I've received some nice pieces lately as well.
|A wonderful chicken-themed envelope from Pamela (she of the Cappuccino and Art Journal, which you really should follow.) |
It also included a lovely, newsy type-written note from Pamela, so that was a real treat.
|These are the two stamp head ATCs I received from the swap Karen organized over at Mail Me Some Art.|
|And more birds from Jennifer via a mail art swap on Swap Bot. This was a very cheerful surprise to receive.|
|From Petropetal in South Africa.|
|Out to Beth. Book cover (Call of the Wild), paper bag (the red dots), graph paper, vintage map, |
vintage image of a mosquito larvae, printed on tissue paper.
Enough for today. It's looking like more rain, so we'll see what I get up to with my scissors and glue stick today.
