Some Circles and Squares

 I made a few postcards for my groups on IUOMA  I originated two groups - one for Circles and one for Squares. The Circle one has a very active following but the squares, not so much.  I used the " let them fall" method of placement, then glued the bits wherever they fell. Then I gave them titles.

Direction, Congestion, & Gravity

                                                                 Direction & Gravity

They'll be sent off to in the mail this coming week. It feels good to spend a wintry morning making Mail Art. You should try it. Really.

A few altered postcards




 I always write a little story on the reverse. Something about what's happening in the image like, the legs in the first image look like tap dancers so I made a story about the noise, and in the lighthouse how the giant shell appeared and the effect it had on tourism. Can you guess what I might have written about the stamps falling from the sky at the new post office? 

That Post Office building now houses the U.S. National Postal Museum and I'm happy that I was able to visit it several times. It's located right by the Railway station. This postcard is one of the ones they offered for free, so I scooped up a few, okay, maybe more than a few. I can't wait until I can travel again and visit the museum.

This altered artist's card, for some artist, I can't remember who, altered with a happy face and a shell, makes ME happy. 


 I've added gloves, finger-less mitts to my etsy shop. Delivery to US only. FritziMim.etsy.com

I've even had a few people stop by for contact free pick up. woo hoo. These, by the way, just sold. 

Keeping busy!

Altered old Postcards


Finding cards in my collection to alter is a lot of fun for me. Finding the right bit to collage on it, to change it up, just a little or a lot. I like playing with space and size relationships. The top card doesn't look altered to me. The additions seem to blend in, as opposed to the observation tower where the hand comes in to terrify the person on the level. Or, at least, in my mind they're terrified. I would be.
