A set of paper bags from Uwe Klein

Uwe sent me a set of three paper bags recently. First a baker bag.

Then, what I assume to be a pharmacy bag.

And then a fun postcard decorated with sugar paper bags !

Playing with mixed media (cont’d)

One more time, I wanted to play with some mixed media techniques to make an envelope for Carroll. The envelope is made from a paper bag that I painted using my gelli plate. I then used a Viva Las Vegas rubber stamp and I added some paper dolls from Tim Holtz. The quote if from the song “Your Funny Uncle” from the Pet Shop Boys.

Received from Connie Jean

A very colorful popcorn bag received from Connie.

Exchange with Vi-Gasco

A new contact sent me this wonderful envelope with the drawing of a frog. Beautiful. And I’m surprised by the postmark on the stamp that has a style I have never seen before.

In exchange I sent this envelope.

Digital mail art from Hester

Hester found a very original way to answer my Digital mail art call. She used papers printed with a computer to make envelopes (transforming them into mail art)!

Sent to Ursu

A collage on an envelope made from a paper bag sent to Ursu to answer one of his multiple contributions.
