We want to send some joint-mail art to some mutual friends so I have gotten started collaging some cards. I figure we won't have enough time to do everything so why not be prepared?
|It was really too hot to do much of anything but I did manage to tear and paste.....found this book a while back at a thrift shop and got inspired to collage some postcards...|
|I had to dig out anything I could find to do with playing cards....this is why I hate throwing anything away. You never know what you are going to need.|
|Bird of another feather?|
I found these little envelopes at the Japanese dollar/yen shop and of course I scooped them up.
|A Little Texas gal I know loves squirrels. Don't ask. I found some paper I had with squirrels on it and I'm working on a surprise for her.|
Well...it may not be a surprise now....I'm not sure if she reads my blog...
From Stan Askew in Pasadena
Stan is very prolific and I have been lucky enough to get some terrific mail from him. I just love how he rubber stamps the envelopes that he puts his collages in...so cool.
|And this one is rubber stamped with a Stamp Head on there! I think he has been looking at my blog and seen my obsession with Stamp Heads. Thanks, Stan!|
|Collage by Stan Askew|
Hum.....and here is another Stamp Head on his collage. The possibilities are endless....
|INCOMING from Allan Bealy|
Allan is a superb collage artist and he has a new book out that I can highly recommend
Get it while you can -- only 100 copies are available and I know a lot of folks are buying.

Great Stamp Heads! Thanks, Nina.
|INCOMING from Cuan Miles (South Africa)|
Some great collages from Cuan on playing cards.....
|INCOMING from Stephanie Blake (Alabama)|
Collage pack #119......anyone who gets a collage pack from Stephanie is very, very lucky...and I've been lucky enough to have received several.
|I am really, really trying to stay NEAT and organized in my studio these days....|
I even have two drawers set aside just for rubber stamps....
