Under the needle... - From Lauriana Glenny

I'm so happy Lauriana included me in her mailing list for this series of her, her work is just amazing. 

The envelope is so original, it looks like vintage leather. It was also very tightly sewn closed, I had a lot of fun opening it with my mini scissors :-)…

Received from Lin Collette, USA--Some Good Mail

I found Lin's collage in the mailbox along with my dentist appointment reminder, making this and not the latter, indeed good mail. The snippets of map, the mult-languages, colors and textures are wonderful, and now that I've become a recent member of IUOMA's music… Continue

La carta velo è una carta per restauro di dipinti ed affreschi di 4 gr. al mq.

La carta velo accoppiata è una tecnica che io utilizzo per inserire i petali o altri frammenti di carta dipinta.

The paper is a veiled light paper, paper for the restoration of paintings and frescoes of 4 gr. per qm.

The paper veil paired (two sheets, a pair of sheets) is a technique that I use to make the petals or other pieces of painted paper.

Artistamp Experimentation

Well, the wow factor just isn't in the project I started last weekend towards a first artistamp. I put up a virtual sheet in our Photos, just to get a better idea how they'd look on screen, but it didn't fly.

I'm beginning to wonder how to get that fresh-looking perforated edge--in a sheet form as well as in singles.

Sandpo (special monkey delivery) - from Katerina Nikoltsou

I don't mean to brag (well, only a little bit), but I am still (no matter what some people might think) the number one mail art psychic in the house. A couple of weeks ago as I saw the picture of a monkey stealing Katerina's sandpaper on De Villo's blog, I predicted that some sandpaper monkey mail art would turn up very soon. Not only did it turn up, but it turned up in my…

Haptic Schnaptic from Katerina Nikoltsou, Ελληνική Δημοκρατία--A dash of Sandpo to Warm up me Lovely Old Bones

Today's Mail Call here at the Studio is really wonderful, full of surprises, and just plain delightful.

We've finally been able to see what we are to expect upcoming, and our eyes are quite happy. While any of us not local have to wait and view it all here in Photos, let's just say, we know they'll be thrilled. 

At first sight, Val's colorful brochure conversion Postcard had us thinking we had entered his secret world. So much bold color! It gave a jump to the adrenaline. :)…
