|I got inspired...|
I love the colors of vintage papers....and I love the characters and the drawings in these old booklets.
Even if i can't read them, they are much appreciated around my studio.
|I decided to make some booklets using the various paper ephemera I had around . I settled on using these pretty envelopes for the covers and making pages inside of joss paper|
as well as vintage paper from that shop I mentioned above.
|Cutting out the pages......|
|Some of the finished little booklets....quite charming don't you think?|
|Then i got busy and made a new little zine called -- Let's GO to Chinatown -- what else?|
|My favorite part of the one-page-wonder zines is embellishing them at the end of the whole process....I stuck Chinese postal stickers on them and some real Chinese stamps....|
|Another little booklet that went out to V.B. and it seems to be taking an awfully long time to get where it's going...|
It's been a good mail week for the most part. My trusty and loyal mail art pal,
Kelly P Fearless Mailer
sent me some vintage stamps from Hungary since she knows I'm going there...
These are going to look great in my travel journal.
You didn't think I made all those trips to Chinatown without stopping for lunch, did you?
This beauty is from Karen Ann. The picture doesn't do it justice. That mailbox is on both sides of the envelope -- hand painted, I think -- and my address and the stamps are on the other side.
That was a good mail day.
|There's Nothing Wrong That A Letter Won't Cure!|
My sentiments exactly.
SF Correspondence Co-Op meeting tomorrow. SF Zine Fest next Saturday. Expect updates!
See you in the mail.
