Mail Art IN - UK, E. Coles

Baked beans! 
This piece of Mail Art must be from the United Kingdom.
E. Coles sends a handmade envelop with goodies and homework. 
The tissue square is an add & pass bookie from Colin Scholl. 
Ooof, quiet a challenge to make something for such delicate pages.

I might use the pattern papers E. sent me. 
The miniature collage is by E. Coles and made of several
natural looking papers. 

Thank you E. Coles.

Mail Art IN - France, Artist in Seine

Plastic bag with yellow writing in the mail box. 
First I thought it was some marketing packet with special offer magazines. 
Didn't pay much attention to it.

But hey! When the box came out of the plastic bag, 
I recognized
Dean Mark's - the Artist in Seine, France -
numbered stamp that announces Mail Art. 
What are those wibbly things sticking out of the box?

It's the coolest, cutest, fantastic, fabulous, magnificent, stunning christmas card ever!
Only need to make the little fellows a bit comfortable, having their legs all cramped up. 
So here's the happy bunch on my front door. 
(I like to think they are doing a christmas disco dance, 
not being threatened by some creature with a gun.)

Thank you Dean, for saving them from the bin!

Mail Art IN - Greece, Momkat

This is NOT blue Mail Art from Momkat, Greece. 
But blue and red are related. Like the cold and hot tap in the kitchen and bathroom. 
Christmassy mail art. Nice!

Thank you, Momkat

Mail Art IN - Turkey, Misra

Junior Mail Artist Misra made this hand marbled envelop. 
In Turkish this technique is called 'ebnu', as Misra writes in a lovely personal note. 

The treasure hunt map with burned edges is also by Misra. 
I think there are sharks in the sea and nomads living in cosy villages. 
Looks stunning. 

Thank you, Misra

Mail Art IN - USA, David Stafford

Woohoo! My pattern is used by David Stafford, USA, to design vintage winter coats.
David can do magic with the computer.
Love the models from the fifties. 

What an honour to see my Mail Art being re-used. 
This is going in my portfolio for when I travel the world with my stuff. 
Oooooh, if only...

Thank you, David

Mail Art IN - United Kingdom, StripyGoose

From the famous 365 birdy series: 318/365 Cockerel/bluebird feels just fine. 
Hope this one will survive Christmas as in 'a cockerel is not a turkey'.

Thank you StripyGoose

Mail Art IN - United Kingdom, MailArt Martha

It was MailArt Martha's pleasure to send me a stuffed envelop from the United Queendom of Retaillia and The Front Door Gallery. 
What a glorious honour. 
I remember watching a video featuring Martha and her shopping gallery troly
 but alas... can't find it now. 

The bookie made from a piece of A4 paper is cool. 
A bookie with funny content. The illustrations and words speak for themselves, me thinks. 

Thank you, Martha
