Mail Art

It doesn't happen nearly often enough, but every so now and then I get the urge to make mail art. Usually collage cards. It just so happens I had this urge last week and I made eight cards.

As part of the base I used some stained  and crinkly construction paper that my sister had left over from a Christmas project. She knows I can't resist pretty papers, so she gifted it to me.

These are the cards I made:









All these cards already have a destination, so I hope the recipients will like them. ;-)

Wishing you all a wonderful and artsy day.

  2. Those are really lovely - now I have lots of ideas!
    I do have one non-crafty question. One of the vintage mail stamps is dated September 24, 1944. Doesn't it give you a strange feeling when you see dates like that from the war years?

    1. Nah, not really. I hadn't even noticed actually, very observant of you.

      In general I don't really connect dates or years with events in a personally emotional matter. To give a somewhat dramatic example of what I mean (sorry if it's too dramatic): my mother died on my birthday many years ago, but even though I of course remember, it does not make my birthday some heavy depressing day. It's just a date.
      War is terrible and the second world war a nightmare to many that were alive during that time, but I don't think september 24 1944 had anything to do with it specifically, if you know what I mean. It's just a postage stamp to me. Not sure if that makes me insensitive or not, I hope not.

I appreciate each and every comment. They make me really happy. I don't like spammers though and that's why the word verification is turned on. I know it's a pain, but I hope you understand.

I try to respond to all comments by directly replying in the comment section, but please understand that sometimes this may take some time. Know that I read them all and that they make my day.
