Nicole has sent me a nice paper bag envelope for my call, so I sent her as an answer an envelope made from a brown bag that I embellished a bit with some pigs!
Some time ago I participated to the “Happiness” mail art call (click here to see my contribution). In return I received this certificate of participation plus a wonderful art piece from Antonia Mayol Castello.
I don’t know if this cartoon was famous everywhere but I liked it when I was a kid. It is called “La Linea” indicating clearly that it came from Italy. I recently read an article about it and it gave me the idea for an envelope. And of course, Marco seemed to be the right person to send it to.
Here are three very nice items received from Phillip.
First, a fantastic bag from the Warhol store located in Pittsburg. The bag is very nice and look at these stamps! None of them got cancelled, unfortunately, but this is always better than a black marker cancel!
And then two iconic symbols of America: McDonald’s and Starbuck’s! I love the matching colors between the stamps and the bags.
To answer Jocelyne’s contribution, I used a simple brown paper bag to make an envelope and I embellished it a bit around the theme of “hat”, one of her favorite themes. I used some of my washi tape, a stencil from Tim Holtz and some collage element.
