"Thanks Robin Jeree! I tend to work in batches. Not surprising after years in photo-finishing... Millions of images. I don't draw so fabric, collage and altered photos are my go to media. "

Gerda Osteneck commented on Jean Jackson's group ENVELOPES ONLY
"This looks like a fun group. I make envelopes out of papers I've made or fabric dyed in the yard. Collage is a long standing passion. I will send some by the end of September, once I clear the work table of other obligations.  Cheers Gerda…"

Loved the mail - great envelope. Thank you. The blank pages: the community/art pages? I’m interested but unclear about the content- in page or all? What kind of art on the pages? I’m feeling kind of lost here. Is there any place to see past finished pages? Thanks!

Has anyone been to the Mail Art Exhibition in DC? Is it worth a trip south?
