O-o-o-o-O I get to post the first Mail Art!

In my mailbox today was this colorful, thick, covered in a pound of clear packing tape  Grin awesome envelope!

Yes it is a work of art. The outside is a collage of color, abundance, animals, jellybeans and I had no idea how or where to open it. I ended up cutting a very little off the ends to un-stuff it.

Inside are two art books with pictures and recipes. I haven't discovered it all yet and some folded recipes...may favorite is "What a Tart!" I'm still finding new pictures, sayings, cartoons and recipes.

Thank you, thank you.

i got my wonderful package mail art from smmarrt today! it has picture from mirrormask and she used image transfer technique! i dont know how she did the background but it is cool!

sorry if duplicate pics of some things, it started raining so i had to take some pics inside and i cant see very well on my icons for pic loaders. Smmarrt has started a new thing with me, now i am going to collect postcards from the swaps if i can from other places as well as mail art, art stamps, and i always save cards i get too! Smiley wondering what i am going to make out of the paper doll patterns! i love paper dolls! i have am going to make a pinterest board for paper dolls too! Smiley

thank you smmarrt! i hope you like my mail art as much as i love yours! will swap again anytime! huggles!

I gessoed the envelope first (I scored 5 bottles of gesso at a garage sale.) Then I sprayed it with inks, using a bunch of different stencils. The back of the envelope is a failed image transfer - so I just glued on the image.
(Sorry!) I had done about 4 envelopes and I could never get front and back to both have nice transfers.

Glad you like it all. I had hoped to make a whole Mirrormask album but haven't had a chance to watch the movie yet.

awesome envelopes!  great start to the gallery Cheesy

amnesia, sealing the envelope with packing tape is a good idea! 

Smmarrt, love the results of your image transfer experiments!  i'll have to add that to my list of things to try Smiley

I received the COOLEST illustrated envelope from artista83.

The front:



The back:



The little drawings are AMAZING! Reminds me a bit of Remy Charlip - a children's book author and illustrator. I love this and so wish I could draw. (I'm also a bit tempted to color it in - just a preschool thing!)

And inside were 4 ATCs.



Two are painted and two are hand-drawn. Wow. Wow. Wow.

Better pic of two and the back of one:



Thank you so much, Amanda. I will make a small envelope book with your envelope as the cover and 3 junk mail envies as the filler.

This was such a fun swap!

(Feel free to post better photos - I'm sorry I can't take better ones.)
