Yesterday I was cleaning up boxes with old letters and discovered that I could do interesting works with recycled stuff. Air mail stripes, envelopes, labels, stamps, patterns from inside the envelopes, all these things are materials to make mail art.
I keep all the letters from my pen pals, family, friends, but I had boxes full of old letters from people I don't speak for more than 11-15 years, or from people I received just two or three letters, that I decided to throw away (kept the special ones, of course!). Then I found different things related to mail which I can reuse. Now I have a large amount of paper to create original postcards and stylish envelopes whenever I want.
This is the first work with my new mail art supplies. To Jennie Hinchcliff.
Outgoings to my new pals:
To Mad Madge in Washington.
To Sally in London.
To Carrie in Canada.
To Jaime in Canada.
