Mail Art update and my big, exciting news!



 These three pieces of Mail Art are for my 365.2 project. I am using cardboard for the substrates (card blanks, backgrounds) and adding paper samples for the compositions.

They are both minimal and color experiments.


This one has a very spatial feeling for me. It has to do with the angled sides.  Just so planar!

This series of three are for my 365.3 project (which is running concurrently with the 365.2, oh I'm so loca!)

Also, very minimal, also subtle color, using paper samples.

This one has a planar strength, also.
And here is our big, exciting, wonderful news! Now that our son and DIL have posted their baby's third week birthday photo for others to see, I feel open to doing the same on this blog. This is a divergence for me, as my regular readers know. I rarely put anything more personal than my vacation photos, or garden, or studio. But here is our first grandchild, named Zinn Nova, born on 19 March 2013. We are speechless.
