Sent to a teacher on the Great Big School Swap. I drew this in a really boring meeting at work with the intention of sending to a teacher in the swap, but had no idea who. It just so happened that when I got home, I had a message in the @schoolswaps twitter account from one of the teachers saying that she had received some post from Korea, and this teacher had Eeyore as her profile picture! One free postcard your way Miss!
The card I used was for a zombie cartoon. I figured that as this was being sent to a school it probably needed to be toned down, so I pasted on some strips from the Amnesty International magazine on the back and edited out the URL with marker pen. Last thing I want is for a bunch of kids to point out that the card made them go and get into the undead!
OK, the photo quality on my cell phone is neanderthal. But, you get the picture (pun intended). It's an envacordion. Spell it how you want to. Some call it an envalopion. This gets tucked into my daughter's luggage, to be unearthed somewhere in the Himalaya.
Yes, it is a bunch of envelopes licked together, collaged, adorned, ornamented. I'm thinking of an envaccordion add and pass. Anyone interested?
Not sure where this will be sent - probably not Canada. Don't want to insult our dear neighbors with my scrawny little maple leaf... it's an easy drive from Canada to Cohoes!
We really don't know what's happened! There we were swimming along quite happily when all of a sudden we were given some tea in these stars-n-stripes mugs and now look at us!!!
Happy Independence Day from The Butterfly Fish Brigade. More 4th July stuff on the Positively Postal website.
I am actually up to number 150, but I don't want to slam them all here on the Mailart365 all at once..
A swap-bot friend sent a book cover with the beginning of a collage and asked that I make my mark (s) and send it back.
This side has old book bits, vintage stamps and selvedges, an old newspaper ad from 1947, an acetone transfer from a scientific clip-art book, and a couple of koi from a California dumpster.....
A swap-bot friend sent a book cover with the beginning of a collage and asked that I make my mark (s) and send it back. It should be where it is going by now...I hope...
I didn't add much to this side...just the exercising lady, a bit of map and some fish.
