More Mail Art & More ‘GIT’

It’s time for my ‘Glue It Tuesday’ post!

Thank you all so much for visiting my blog!!! …last week and today 🙂
It IS really nice to see so many visitors and bloggers to comment. It’s a great way to connect and learn what others think of my little crafty world. I try to visit all the lovely blogs of all who commented and/or are lining over at Aimee’s blog, but please be patient if I haven’t come around everyone’s blog yet.

Anyway – here this weeks goodies:

One more card ready to be mailed (well, there are more, but I didn’t take pictures yet ;))
Again: please let me know if you like to swap any mail art!

'chocolate' - mail art :)

‘chocolate’ – mail art 🙂

this card involves sewing, handwriting, water coloring, and of course: GLUEING! 🙂

A peek on a background, that is still developing…
not sure yet if it will be mail art or art journal page or…

water color, acrylic, pencil (for the handwriting = first layer), bubble wrap as stamp, newspaper clipping, college block/pad paper scraps…

I really liked the flowers on that ad, but they were a bad print (cheap advertisment/newpaper type paper with dull colors), so I cut it out and scribbled with pencil to outline the petals to give it some more contrast.

Thank you all for visiting!

Cheers,

Jana

    Jana, I love the background with the flowers peaking through.

    1. Thanks, Boo 🙂
      Have a lovely day!

  3. Awesome work! I particularly love the bubble wrap effect…very textural!

    1. Thank you, Lynn! …the bubble wrap is one of my favorite ‘background’ buddies 🙂

  4. I like, that you started something new (at least to me), I really like the material collection. Great. And of course the bubbles and the vivid colour!

    1. Thanks, Gabriele 🙂
      I have amassed quite a few paper scraps and other interesting materials. Time to use them!

  5. Jana – I’d love to trade and receive one of your great looking postcards. Didn’t want to say anything before I didn’t have any made, but I’ll be working with that size “canvas” and I’m sure I’ll have something soon. And saying yes will help me get my butt in gear! So yes, let’s swap!

    1. Yes, Deb, that’d be great! Well, I’m on the slow side myself, so you need to be patient. Except you have a card in mind that i already posted and that’s available… Just let me know. (I’ll send this as email as well…)

  6. I really like the detail in the second photograph of the strips of paper cut up into stripes. Really nice.

    1. Thanks, Dawn 🙂
