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.

" 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. "

Mail-Artist since:
2000
My Website:
http://https://bonniediva.tumblr.com/
Why I am involved in Mail-Art:
I am a mixed media collage artist, specializing trash and vintage. I also love poetry, so many of my pieces include poems. I rescue old old poetry volumes from library sales, thrift stores, etc, and use the pages. I also do altered books, covering the pages of old weary books with life!
I'm from New Orleans, but now live in the wilds of the Midwest!
IUOMA has really kept me working and exploring my art.
Please send me your art, and I will always send you something in return!
