Mail Art Martha, MomKat (both of whom I already exchange mail art with), stripygoose, and Scott aka Positively Postal met up in a London Pub to create mail art earlier this year, and I was one of the lucky recipients (card arrived May 6).

Lots of stamps, birds, blue and yellow.
I wanted to create a linked set of mail art for them, hopefully by the time this post rolls around I will have created something and sent it out...

..mission accomplished! The imminent postage increase of May 31 was a good motivator. I created a set of four large envelopes from a promo poster for Brother Bear that a pen friend sent me ages ago, a collective sending if you will. And the Send a Hello and Send a Smile stamps were perfect for this. I apologize for my photography skills - I could not get the stamps and envelopes in focus at the same time. And these guys were just a little bit too long to fit on the scanner without creasing them even more. I know that 3 of them have arrived, not sure if Scott received his or not.

Inside everyone received a piece of hive mind. This is not quite how they ended up looking, as they were printed onto transparencies and glued to colored cardstock, but the final product doesn't scan well. Use your imagination :)

And a commemorative print on gold tissue paper.

Thanks so much for thinking of me, everyone.

I used the leftover pieces of sky from making these envelopes to give Cher some hair.

Hi, Scott, so pleased that all 4 parts arrived! No rush to send something back, I just wanted to find out if it made it or got lost in the aether.

Hi there FinnBadger, I am not on here very often but stripygoose flagged up your message on here to me and yes, I did receive my part of your sending which is fantastic so thank you very much! Sorry for not replying sooner, time has sort of flown by since our London Pub Collective (LPC) meeting at the end of April. Must be time for another one! :) I will get something mailarty off in the post to you very soon.

Thanks, stripygoose. I needed something to give the envelopes some stiffness, so decided to be arty about it at the same time.

And thanks for your amazing chickens and their adventure! Just got back from a trip, so will be sending something back soonish.

I love being part of the LPC - stroke of genius to name us. Thank you. And I love the hive creation too.

I've had this for ages, and felt that it needed to be divided in 4... so the 4 of you were the perfect fit. I just hope that Scott received his. I can duplicate the print easily, not the envelope, though.

Fantastic mailing, Finnbadger!

I didn't realize that the super fine envelope you sent

was "part-of-the-whole-picture" . How exciting...

thanks so much! (Loooove the BLUE!)
