It’s a swap-botty kind of day…
The three collaged cards are part of a “chunk ‘o’ cardboard” exchange, in which we need to do no more than mail out a simple scrap of cardboard cut to postcard proportions. Sometimes I use these for my silly version of mail art, which may not be to others’ standards, either in artistic perspective or skill.
The top left card started life as a Kleenex box, onto which I slapped a bit of coffee label, and then characters from the packaging of pharmaceuticals, Kinder toys, and taro chips. This lovely, layered piece of art goes to the swap’s host in Saint Paul, Minnesota.
The set of two are cardboard scraps covered with a nighttime scene from a coffee canister, and then populated with Richard Scarry characters rescued from a worn-out, discarded library book. They go to two cities in New York: New York City, and Liverpool.
The tiger is headed for Kokkola, Finland, part of a “Zazzle” swap in which we are to mail out cards we have had professionally printed (by whatever company) from our own images. This, surely, will be one of the best cards ever sent out in that trade!
