Hello

♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡

Angie

I like playing with collage, mixed media, hand carving rubber stamps, buying rubber stamps, owning more paper than I can ever use, playing with my gelli plates, Sizzix die cutting machine and yeah, I like all that stuff and more.

I love that mailart has exposed me to many different styles, many different artists, many different perspectives.

I like exchanging naked handmade postcards and I usually do 5 x 7 inches in size. I find that size offers enough space to experiment while still being affordable to mail to someone. I like the postcards naked so the address, postage stamps and other postal markings are part of the piece.

I also make a lot of ATCs. I meet with a local group to exchange ATCs monthly.

♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡

Comment: Thanks for your multi, multi, multi mixed media card, Angie! At first I thought you'd also included sewing machine stitching as one of your techniques. The faux effect is great! And yeah, the sphinx stamp is a hoot!

Comment: Hi Angie :-) . . . Thanks for the cute Ephemera ATCs. I grew up seeing a lot of those images from pattern envelopes because my mother used to sew school dresses for me and my sisters. Those were long ago days. And I like your note card too. I have also resolved to do more painting. I used to, seems like so long ago, but I want to paint again. I recently bought myself a new watercolor paint set and journal just for this purpose.
Response: Hello and you're welcome. I love those sewing images.
