Envelopes or postcards

Please add me.  This is how I started doing mail art years ago.  Just envelopes.  No insides.  Or just postcards.  Pretty much the same idea.  Thanks.  Pam McVayContinue

Here are two fine Envelopes Only, oh-so-late in making it up here.

The Zentangle is really special, with great use of color. The backs of each are also lovely.

I goofed and put this one up on Envelopes, when it was an Envelopes Only. Here's the back, the front to come:

I got this lovely envelope today from Sam. Thanks so much. I love it. The back is cool too. It’s on my page if you want to look.

Two great envelopes today. What a lovely way to bring a smile to a face so far away:) Thank you Jean and Robin. I have a severe case of wanderlust so mail may not go out until October but maybe sooner if I can make it happen!!:)

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, these envelopes are amazing!

I enjoyed this type of mailart in 2001 and would like to continue it now! Looking forward to sending new artful envelopes out into the world!
