I sent Mail Art

As I mentioned in yesterday's post,
thought we'd do a postal swap -
 just for fun.
Katie's beautiful fabric postcard can be seen in this post.
Katie has just emailed to say she's received my 
Mail Art and postcard.

I saw the black and white image of the 
man in a book and thought he was fun.
(I've still got the other half of his face to 
use in another project!)
I used watercolour crayons on the envelope
(which I later sealed with gel medium).
I found the quote by Andy Rooney and 
thought it perfect for Mail Art!

"One of the sweetest things in life:
 the letter from a friend."

Inside the crazy man envelope, I enclosed 
a postcard with this altogether 
less crazy looking gal.

The sentiments in the quote by Fanny Brice,

"Let the world know you as you are
not as you think you should be."

are ones that I am finding easier to follow as I get older.

I enjoyed swapping with Katie
and hope we can do it again one day soon.......:0)

I'm fascinated by these art postcards you receive and make... Wow they are gorgeous!
I would love to get involved but seriously I wouldn't know where to start so I'll stick with my photography, for now. :-)
I'm browsing through your last few posts.... Loving and learning.
Have a great weekend Joanna. X

Another great swap Jo. You have the knack of finding those 'perfect' quotes for them.What a lovely photo of Fanny Brice - not a bit like Barbra Streisand!
