|Chinatown handmade book project|
I've been roaming around Chinatown for years (and years) taking photos, picking up firecracker wrappings and ephemera, hunting down vintage Chinese school booklets
and putting everything in books ....
Crushed juice box, photos, vintage booklets...
Here's a "green" page -- Happy Earth Day today.
|Boston Journal, handmade box, nature ephemera|
|Travel journal with box and leaves, pods and acorns picked up in the Boston Garden...|
|The box has lovely layers -- fall leaves on the bottom, then the journal and on top lots of pods and acorns....|
Opening it up and looking at all this brings back so many memories..
|Turkey/Italy Travel Journal|
I keep a travel journal of some sort on every trip I take. Big or small. And I usually collage inside the journal and on pieces of watercolor too...
Collage from the Zurich airport....
Folder made from Istanbul map to hold all the excess business cards, postcards, menus etc that didn't fit inside the travel journal.
I may make a box for all this to go into or just tie the whole darn thing up with a ribbon.
|According to this nifty Postal Chart sent to me by Kelly P -- these smallish Chinese flash cards ( a library book sale find) are not to small to send thru the mail.|
I hope that's right....Off they went!
There they go now -- some mail going out.
|Outgoing Photo Collage Postcard|
I made up some photo collage cards with one of my favorite subjects on it.
|We all want mail art!|
