as i promised - these are my mail art pieces from the last week - some of my favourite ever! for this first piece, i was inspired by something i saw on goodnight little spoon a year ago, as well as this mail from an old friend! magdalyn bought me a bunch of pretty japanese style papers at the paper place in toronto so i thought it only fitting that i make her something out of them! and scroll down for my favourite mail art ever...
i made the following package for my friend holly. it's a little gift from the artist i work for. he used to live in the yukon (for twenty-five years!) so i wanted to emphasize the journey the package would take up to the canadian north. i drew a map of the pacific west coast and traced the path using washi tape planes. cute eh?
i received this little surprise from a fellow blogger named kate from our little sins. there was a beautiful pantone postcard inside this lovely heart envelope. i liked the card so much that i immediately ordered my own set of 100!
this next colourful piece is from lea, in germany. we both participated in a pen pal project on the freckled italian. lea's letter was a bit tardy but better late than never!
last but not least is the second piece of mail i received from the elevated envelope project. you can see more mail art from this project here!
