Mail Art Mail Art! Destination: France

I struggle with mail art. I am embarassed by the mail art I have been sending out... Until tonight I have been hung up on making something double sided. Tonight I told myself "wabi-sabi, Julie- stop being a jackass...just make something and then fold it into an envelope.

Voila! Here is the piece I came up with. My mail art curse is over! The top photo is what the piece looked like unfolded. Middle and last picture are what we (my personalities and I) came up with once it was folded.
Art Heureux De Courrier, Tova ! Jusqu'à ce que nous expédiions encore le mois prochain !

Beautiful, Julie. I haven't been participating, but have been following your tutorial and have learned a lot of good details. I am just now learning to collage and this is very helpful. I have some ideas for my next one but have yet to tear myself away from photoshop long enough to make one :)

love the mail art!
I have been sending mail art for a long time, and now I'm teaching a class - called, "going postal."
the women at the local post office always giggle when I come in, because of the art, and because I always insist on putting on my own stamps, no matter how many it takes!
wanted to thank you, too, for your kind comments on Illustration Fridays.
it has been good incentive.
