Mailart postcards 125-131/365

If you remember from the sneak peek a few weeks ago, I purchased a bag of vintage photographs from the flea market and decided to use some of them for the mailart 365 project.

I started out with the idea to create outfits using my paper collection.

Then I had the idea to do more of the environment in paper. This piece is a very “Robayre” piece, obviously, with all the individual pieces of grass. It was time consuming, but I love how it came out.

While I was working I suddenly thought of the artist Alyn Carlson and her lovely paper hats. I love her hats and immediately I knew some of my vintage folks needed to wear some fancy hats! I love how they came out and it was so much fun to create their hats.

  1. like I said on flickr. . . i really love these. it’s fun to watch your mailart pieces as time goes on, it looks like you are exploring new territory, but it’s also so recognizable as your style.

  2. yes, I send all the postcards out in the mail, although I am very behind. I have LOTS of postcards that I need to address and actually drop into the mail.
