Add/Passes can be fun and interesting, but many artists don't know what to ADD, so they PASS on doing them all together.
Here are some things I add. I keep special adds ready to glue on:
1. I have special labels that I make on my printer and glue on. I usually make the label with a photo and my address. It's my simple add.
2. I do vintage collage, so I use a lot of images from vintage mags. I find the ads very whimsical, so I cut out a bunch of ads and keep them in a special bin. I glue them on the add/pass and then affix my address label as a way of signing.
3. Some Add/Passes ask you to "altar" or literally "add" to an existing photo on the add/pass. I do that either by drawing or gluing something on. Then I sign on the back.
Add/Passes are also a great way to meet other mail artists, who may not necessarily be on IUOMA.
