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

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!

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 Osteneck

The stamp in the right corner of Rizzuto's envelope, smells like fruit--it's a scratch & sniff stamp! I couldn't resist making it part of the design.

Something sweet from Camela Rizzuto.

I got the sweetest seahorse from Pam McVay, thank you so much Pam! It's such a cute and detailed illustration.

If I can get a photo will post it here.

Drama on the High Seas from Jean Jackson.  Love the "content not included stamp!  This person has some crazy cake rubber stamps!

And again, from Sam as it reached my postbox. I removed the tag from the post to see the fish faces later, what was easy as the envelope is "coated".
