"I think this technique has so much potential for fun.  I'm going to by a bottle of fountain pen ink today.  I'll send you some of my results. :-)"

"Fountain pen ink. Now that you say so I totally see it. Ink and fairly carefully applied water to get the twos or of mirrored areas for the ink.  They look like a lot of fun to make."

Why I am involved in Mail-Art:
I started sending out handmade postcards to friends of mine several years ago. Basically, they were a quick way to get something made when I couldn't come up with ideas for larger projects. Soon, they became an end in themselves. Now, it's something of a passion, whenever I have spare time.

Currently, I am unable to load pictures to IUOMA's website. I'm very sorry about that. I've enjoyed sharing all of the wonderful have sent me over the years. Please know, that I will send you something back, every time. It may take me a while, but I promise, I will always reply with more art.

I should add that I am very bad about add-and-pass activities. You should not send me anything like that. But I will send you something I've made.

See you in the post.

Thank you very much, James. Receiving not, neither & nor has been a happy highlight over the past few weeks. I will send by return.

A blue postcard came from you today, James. Thank you, and you say you make books too. Woohoo! I also can't load photos (or even see them on here anymore) otherwise I'd have posted a picture of it (and of the stuff I've been making).
