A Little Art Never Hurt Anyone

I have Postal ATC's on the brain.......

ATC's
I just got the bug and wanted to make and trade Postal themed ATC's.
At first it was hard for me to work in such a small scale...

But I got into it. What do you think? It was fun going through my stash of postal stuff getting ideas.

I like the whole red, white & blue thing I've got going on. It is almost 4th of July.

These have a brown theme....

And here's an Asian Postal Theme -- used the stamps my friend got  for me in Taiwan.

Here's another of mine
....I have gotten a few really cool ATC's in and I'll show you those when I collect a few more..

OUTGOING
Outgoing envelopes for some ATC's -- you know who you are if you've sent me a card already.

I love these polka dot vellum envelopes -- see what I put inside?

OUTGOING

JOSS PAPER SHOES with candy in them....a pair of shoes for  $2.99?
You can't beat the price. But you can't wear them either.

ROAD TRIP
Oh yeah...I've got one coming up....
(collaged postcard)
Do you think i should take this car?

San Francisco Art Car
I saw this baby at a street fair last weekend and I couldn't believe it. Amazing.
I'd sure like to drive that thing to LA.
Those are San Francisco scenes painted on the side.

Allow Enough Time for Southern California

Well, I never have much time. We roll in and we roll out pretty fast, picking up paper ephemera all along the way and stopping for great food and taking pictures and making mail art. And getting into trouble.
So what are you going to do this weekend?
Anyone else want to trade with me?

Don't forgot to check the Cappuccino&Art faceBook page for updates and more photos and links.
See you around!

  2. You're a papermill! LOL. Do you dream mail art? :) Not sure which I like best, so I'll just like everything, as usual. There's so much fun in this post.

    Those shoes are inspirational. You rock!

  7. Great ATCs!! A letter is off to you (finally!) and now wished I'd enclosed an ATC...next time. The shoes are awesome, but the art car is epic (as my grandkids would say :> ) How do you ever have time to do all your projects??? Keep sharing because I'm always inspired by your posts.
