Mail Art


I've finally managed to put together a selection of digital images, printed, labelled, and ready to go.  These are to be used for my group's upcoming market stall.  Some of the images began life as one of my photographs, so far removed from the original so as not to be recognizable.  Others began as blank files in GIMP or PSE8.  I have some clear cellophane self-seal packets, and thought these might be something different - rather like a postcard with more.

Each little packet contains the outer page {slightly nicer than copy paper], as well as an A5 sheet with printed lines {normal copy paper].  All that needs to be done is to write the short note, pop it back into the clear packet, seal, stamp and post.  Perhaps it may even brighten the mailman's day.  The image in this photograph was originally some dried and cracked earth - go on, you will see it if you look!!!

I also hope to print some of these {or similar} onto fabric for postcards which will enable a bit of added embroidery.

I'm only making a few of these, as each sheet has been hand cut.  I really need to buy some A5 paper, or a guillotine!!

Thank you for taking an interest in all that I manage to fiddle with.
