DECOS - Do you miss them?

DECOS - Do you miss them?

Do you miss Decos? What’s a DECO? It’s a sort of mail art friendship book, but with a theme. Each book has around 6 to 10 pages inside and a THEME. You do a page according to your art style and following the theme, and you mail it to another DECO person. It’s like an ADD/PASS, in a way. When it’s full, it goes back to the person who started it.

I started doing DECOs back in 2004, but then people started making them too heavy, gluing all sorts of heavy embellishments, etc., and I couldn’t afford the postage. Then, the DECO world sort of died out. I’d like to see if any of you are interested. 

Let me know if you have questions! Hugs, Bonniediva

You don’t have to ask who needs a deco. (Unless you have a big batch to get rid of). Group members who are in this group will happily take one they have not decorated yet. Hugs, BonniedivaContinue

Hi,

I am going to send decos with the following topics: women, silence, someone must have told a lie, water, migration, paradise, heroes.

Can't wait to receive yours!

regards

Uta

Any topic is fine. Mine have 6 pages. Send to IUOMA artists who are in this group. Keep them moving. Post the full decos when you get them back.

 I would make a list of people I really trusted to keep it moving. Losing an add & pass page before it gets back to the recipient is sad to me and losing a book is sadder.

Hi

Comment by Uta Richter on June 20, 2018 at 11:54am

ok, I am going to send one to everybody in the group, too.

Hey Everyone! I’m so happy for the interest. To keep the weight down, we could use thin paper for the pages and keep them under 10 pages. I’m going to send one to each of you on the discussion board! Yay!
