In my last swap Going Postal - Mail Art Outside The Box
I talked about a new book that I just got. Good Mail Day, it's all about the adventures of creating and shipping mail art, i'm fascinated so I have to share this book with you all.
The second excerpt from the book says: Mail art can happen anywhere, at any time, and in any place. The important thing is to make it happen, and the easiest way to do that is to be prepared for any inspiration that might rear it's head.
I love my supplies so much that sometimes it's impossible to choose which bits and pieces to take along on a trip, so to curb the desire to pack up my house and shove it in my car, my goal is to make a small portable art kit for 1 partner. I am offering you the opportunity to do the same.
Choose a container
It must be in very good to brand new condition. Handmade is acceptable so long as the material is clean and durable. (exa - a zipper pouch, a plastic school box, a drawstring bag, an empty first aid kit, a metal cookie tin)
Choose an adhesive Exa - a new glue stick, tape roll, glue dots, glue pen
Next write an inspirational message that prompts your partner to make art daily
Then fill the container with things that your partner can access on the go to create art. (senders choice of 5 items)
Please strive to create a well rounded kit for your partner, take some time and think about what you would want to receive in this kit and add a little extra to send your partner something nice.
Feel free to pull like new items from your stash
