APR theme

The Artist Playroom (APR) theme this week is mail art....I can't let this one pass me by since I LOVE sending and receiving mail art of any kind.


I made two postcards to go out (one to Jane to help save her post office!)  I'm finally letting myself use pieces of decorated papers I received in the MMSA swap months ago.  It's SO hard for me to cut them up, but when I saw how beautifully Jo used papers I sent her in some of her recent collages, I decided it was time.  The bottom one is all pieces of papers gifted or swapped to me!  Also, note the use of hearts for my own personal 'motif of the month'.  :)

Mail art opportunities abound so if you'd like to fill your mailbox with something other than junk mail and bills, this is the year to join in!  A good place to start is MMSA (mail me some art) - Karen hosts weekly themed swaps and makes it so easy to participate....

  10. Hi Terrie,
    Remember me! LOL I know it's been so long since I visited.
    Having been the recipient of some of your mail art, I can personally say how fantastic it is to receive such vibrant envelopes containing pure delightful papers within!
    Certainly puts a smile on your face for the rest of the day! :D
    Have a wonderful weekend xoxo
