mail art

After getting a really cool new book, Good Mail Day by Jennie Hinchcliff, I made this neat little piece of mail for my mom! It didn’t actually go in the mail as an individual piece. It went as part of the whole pkg I sent her with photos of the crepe myrtles I took when I was there last.

The envelope is made from black cardstock with archival ladybug stickers, silver gel pen and a cute post it note with ladybugs on it too. 

The book is really awesome and has lots of ideas and suggestions for mail art, including some artists that have participated in mail art for a long time. There’s a template for this type of envelope and tons of other things, too.
