Line art postcard

I created this postcard with fine colour markers and recycled card board. I used a line of shapes, wiggles and turns and then I coloured in the created areas to make one piece of line art mail art.


Painted on recycled card board and acrylic paints

Julie tag ~ Summer

A beautiful Julie Nutting doll stamped and coloured image created by recycling embellishments. The tag is about 8 x 3 inches. It is a beautiful, colourful and summerly Julie tag.

June inspirations

Ink up your letters like Joanne Sharpe, who creates easy, little art pieces with little sayings. Mail art that includes these small inspirations are awesome to send and receive. Include a small saying or a little inspiration for your partner on the mail art.

Used: recycle adult colouring postcard cover, magazine cut outs, golden gel medium (matte regular), faber castell artist pitt pen (brown) and washi tape.

8.5x11" Art journal page June 2018

So here I have another art journal page with the theme beginning with the letter of the month, so for June our theme is **J*. The art journal page is further filled with shaving cream technique, stamping with clear stamps and stamping with a bubble plastic.

I think this word is really funny, but suitable to what we have been dealing with for hundred of years and still deal with their garbage nowadays coming from so called "colonizers", "politics", "ruling ones", "elites" and "scientists": jab•ber•wock•y          (ˈdʒæb ərˌwɒk i)
n., pl. -wock•ies. (sometimes cap.) meaning writing or speech with nonsensical words. And I add to the definition all of their actions from the past up to the next future.

Change is here!💓

My second HELLO pop-up card

I wasn't satisfied with my first HELLO pop-up card. It seemed easy and my Cricut didn't cut the balloon neatly. I want to send a decent pop up card to my swap partner, so I started a second card for her. I'm more satisfied with my second attempt.

But then I noticed that I forgot to add the flowers. I added two flowers afterwards at the back of the pop up part of the card. For the worst, I forgot to take a picture after I added the flowers:((

Handmade envelope
This card is also quite large, so I had to make the envelope. I found a nice 12x12" designer paper in my stash and here is my envelope.

HELLO pop-up card

A pop-up celebrate card using artfully sent cartridge. When I finished this card, I felt this it? I wasn't too satisfied with the cuts and I thought the card was too simple.

 Handmade envelope
This is a larger greeting card, so I made envelopes to fit the cards. I didn't tried to make it using my Cricut or envelope board. I find it too much trouble to check the measurements for a suitable envelope. Making an envelope using my score board is a lot quicker, I think.

Shaving cream background ATC

The shaving cream technique is an old technique. It is quite messy, but awesome to play with it once in a while. I've used glimmermists instead of inks and it works well.
