I put these up on my page before, but not in the context of the blog, so I am putting them here now with a big Thank You again to the early birds! Super thanks to Angie and Snooky who put the word out for me about the k-5 Mail art Project. Without her help, I don't know if anyone would have seen my yulp. Thank you, Angie!
Side One of Angie and Snooky's Nine Lives Card:
And the Reverse. . . complete with the super popular Snooky stamp!!!
Carmela Rizzuto's lovely delicate ferns (those are cut out-exquisite!) -she says on back "I hope you and your classes enjoy the game of mail art-send one and get one in return. Mail art reaches out to the world." Thank you, Carmela!
Junanne Peck sent us three great examples-these two came earlier-the kids loved the glitz of gold on cardboard and the use of stencils (though there was disappointment I wasn't whipping out spray cans-sorry kids-I may be crazy with hot glue and cutting impliments, but I have my limits), The second, the Mary, shows the power of a strong graphic in black and white and her lovely cancellation with wavy hair-the first example the kids got to see! Thank you, Junanne!
And the last of the early Birds to come in was from Not Hi Ng, a neighbor in the bay area! The kids really enjoyed the fantasy of this-it is very Christmassyish-visions of sugarplums-but with a strange little critter shaking things up. Thank You, Not Hi Ng!
