Sticky Fingers and Mail Art

I've been showing you the mail art I've been making as I've been using up the art scraps of my own art. It's taken me most of this week to finally get them done and ready for mailing. I made the mistake of requesting 6 persons in which to send postcards to PostCrossing. I was wanting to get a country I hadn't yet sent anything to so I just kept requesting and at 6 had to stop, not realizing I had just signed up for 6 more. Silly me. So there is now mail art going to Russia, Singapore, Switzerland and Germany. I'm not big on sending ordinary postcards, (especially not from where I now reside) so I send mail art. Won't they be surprised! The response in the past is that they don't quite know what to make of it. And here is another one that hasn't been finished or cut up into mail art yet. The watercolor paper is warped so the pic is not flat. I apologize for the poor picture. Again, this is all scraps of my own art. I am linking this to Amy over in Artsyville who's having a Glue It Tuesday part. This is ironic that I stumbled upon her post this week given all the tearing and pasting I've been doing. I'm glad there are so many others who enjoy sticky fingers as I do. ...................... Thank you for spending a few minutes with me. I am off from work today so I am going to play..................................jo

  1. These are lovely patterns and designs, I can see how great it would be to send them around the world. Jo, do you send them like a postcard, or do you put them in an envelope to ensure they get their nice and safe? just wondered.

  5. I sent my first PostCrossing postcard a couple of weeks ago. It is travelling from Perth, Western Australia to the Ukraine and it has not been received yet...boo hoo. I certainly would know it if I got mail art in the post and I certainly would cherish it more than a random postcard. Love your work.

    1. Hi Rossie. I know from experience it does take awhile for them to get there internationally. We thought we had to wait long, sometimes. I think it's all a security thing, you know. I'm think they have to inspect all mail, even post cards. Thanks for commenting.
