Mail art


Working on these small pieces reminds me of the 52-projects that I did last year. Everything is in the timing and this certainly wouldn't have been the year to take on a weekly project. The fabric background is a serendipitous piece created when I wiped off the squeegee between screen prints.

Have I mentioned that I'm not fond of wasting dye even if it's supposedly exhausted? The blue background fabric wouldn't exist if I hadn't spread dye print paste onto fabric; I wasn't expecting such vivid colors. The torn aged text is from a French book so I have no idea what it says. Don't you love a mystery?

Hola Chica! Beautiful serendipity! Love these two cards and they are so unique.
The quote... I'll have to chew on. :)

I love the colors in both of these! Both of them signify travel and adventure. I like how you create art out of- well- stuff. Fabulous!

Beautiful cards! Sometimes the scrap pieces and wiping rags turn out the best.
