Incoming Mail Art – Mindaugas of Lithuania

Jun

I received a packet yesterday of some really great stuff!  Fellow IUOMA member Mindaugas of Lithuania sent me a packet of stamp art, some really cool square pieces that have a really nice gloss, as well as some post office cancellation stamps or marks from all over the world. Oh yeah and a Trump/Putin “Make Everything Great Again” Decal!  Love IT all!  

19 and beautiful – Outgoing Mail Art Postcard

May
29

I have a 2-year-old and a 5-month-old; both boys.  As you may imagine they keep both me and my wife fairly busy.  If you have any children at all, you know that they will occupy your every waking hour at those ages. I’m not complaining, and my beautiful wife does an excellent job with the two little humans as well.  It’s just that I end up making my collages late at night after everyone goes into daily hibernation.  It’s been a good time to unwind and release the creative juices that need to be released onto a nice little postcard – like this one.

FOR THIS little postcard, I used ads from LIFE Magazine, a barcode from my vehicle registration, acrylic paint and a honeycomb stencil (which I feel I need more practice using – perhaps you’ll see it make another appearance soon).   In any case, I have not decided to whom I’ll be sending this fun little collage to, but I hope that it’s enjoyed.  

What do you think?  Do you have any criticism? Compliments or complaints?  Feel free to let me know in the comments.

Dear Mom

I get the majority of my creative side from my mom.  I told her about mail art and the IUOMA and so she joined too.  I thought I would send her some mail art, even though she only lives across town. I know that she’ll really enjoy receiving this.  This is a collage I made with old vintage LIFE Magazine ads as well as some found paper objects.  I used these blank postcards I picked up from Amazon.  

Please let me know what you think.
