Hello All!

In noticing how popular "Mail Art for Beginners" by angellarae is, I thought Id do another one, as I am now Totally Addicted to Mail Art!

I would like everyone to handmake an 8" X 6 " postcard or card and write a little "Hi How do you do" on it. How much you write is up to you, but make it worthy of receiving.

Then I'd like you to handmake an envelope to fit it in. Please make it from heavy paper or card stock as thin paper wont cut it for the next step. Cover you envelope and card/postcard in multimedia collage, paint, crayon, pen, stamp, stick stuff on, - whatever. Some digital prints as collage pieces are ok but please don't print the whole thing. Put in some effort, you know everyone needs a bit of art joy in their lives!

8" x 6" is the minimum, you may go larger if you wish, but remember this is international.

1 partner - Make them happy! - Do not flake You have three weeks to get it in the post. Plenty of time.

Full profile must be filled out, no recent 1's or 3's. Please have a read of your partners profile to make sure you are at least headed in the right direction in sending them something they'd like, or at least steer away from their dislikes!

I will angel if you have been flaked on, let me know. This is my first time hosting, so I'm a little cautious, but I just gotta get me some more mail art!

Google: mail art, mail art envelopes to get some great ideas.

Please ask me anything I may have forgotten

I love the idea of this, but the reason I'm not joining is because the large size will require extra postage. If you ever do one with a standard size envelope, let me know! :)

You should check out the Mail Art & Add n' pass group

Is this to be sent "NAKED" or can we go all out on decorating the envelope and put both the postcard and the decorated envelope in another envelope to mail?

You can go all out decorating for sure! But I would not then put it another blank envelope. The point of mail art is to send the art through the mail.
