La Felicidad, certificate of participation

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.

Received from Fabiene Lebaron

A second very nice contribution from Fabiene.

La linea

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.

Incoming from Phillip Lerche

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.

Phillip sent me also a very nice piece of one of his collage.

Sent to Jocelyne Depierre

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.

Received from Nancy Dickson

A new contribution from Nancy to my Paper bag mail art call, with a very nice way to write my name and the address. Fantastic result.

Birds, birds, birds…

Being busy answering all the nice paper bag contributions, I must admit that I haven’t much time left for my more “traditional” digital mail art activity. I nevertheless made recently two envelopes picturing birds using the Bricolage digital kit from Jen Maddocks Design. One for Adrienne.

And one for Simon.
