Don't forget that you, too, can participate. You can make Mail Art on a regular basis or irregular basis, and even take it on as a daily practice.
It costs only the price of a stamp, if you're like me and use recycled materials. (and the cost of glue added in)

This minimal piece worked for me. Just a floating scarf and a circle. I love it when just two pieces work.
OR, as in this altered card, just one thing added. Don't those lips look menacing?
Or this person, counting one sheep, perhaps. Just one added bit and the story changes, right?
This black band piece was made specifically for a Mail Art call about justice. You can learn more HERE and perhaps enter a piece.

|#123 And Day 18|
|Day 9 & Day 21|
It's been a wonderful challenge. I did it last April. I didn't plan to do it this time around but then I just jumped in.
Above, Day 18, we were to make something to trade for something we wanted. Well, I always want MAIL!! So I traded for some Mail Art from another Sprinter!
Day 6, we were to make something with our eyes closed. I chose the pencils with eyes, closed and made a portrait. I even put the brush of water on with out seeing where I was doing it. I really like the results!
Day 9, we were to take something apart and make something new from it. I opened up a cracker box, made a weaving through it and then put it together inside out.
On Day 21, we were to make something and send it through the mail. Easy Peasy as kids used to say a long time ago, easy peasy for me. I made a water color landscape, put it in the Day 9 box, added a bunched up plastic bag for padding, and sealed it up all over with packing tape. It made it through the mail, arriving at it's destination today!
Yay, USPS. Three day journey only.
On Day 17, we were to teach someone how to do something. I taught people who had basic knitting skills how to make a pair of simple fingerless gloves.
I think a couple people might try it. I hope they do and show me the results.

I'm participating in the fall #Creativesprint. Every day we get a prompt. On day 12, we had to do something backwards. I wrote my grocery list backwards and used a mirror to check it. Not back after I slowed down and focused. Oh, yes, people, that's a life lesson right there!! Don't you think?
|Day 14 #CreativeChallenge|
You can do this to, if you'd like.
Just print out the forms and do it.
And because of that, I'm not getting as many in-coming pieces of Mail Art. This makes for a sad mail box. SO, I'm going to get busy and ---
make more and send more. That's the solution!
Card #120 was inspired by Hannah Hoch. See an example of her work below. She's one of my favorite collage artists, and I'm a member of her fan club.

Do want to suggest a caption?
I showed them the envelopes before I opened them It's amazing that they arrived at our home. Amazing.
