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

I've noticed that Add/Pass books are becoming more popular these days. Kinda like a deco. I love the freedom of being able to add anything I like.Continue

Melissa, your Found Poetry Deco is on its way to Jayne Lyons! I enjoyed working on it -- haven't done anything like that in a while.
