Mail Art

Project in process- mail art exchange 
I couldn't wait to get started on these little pieces of art!
It does not take much... to get me started!
(corrugated cardboard)

The creation of something new is not accomplished by 
the intellect
but, by the play instinct acting from inner necessity.
The creative mind plays with objects it loves.
~ Carl Jung

I cut the cardboard into 4x4 squares.
Added masking tape and acrylic paints.
what fun I am having today...
These will be my background colors
 for the collage artwork I will be applying! 

I thought...
I should create colorful envelopes.

Just can not think of... any better way to mail out my artwork!

I am ready to add more texture and collage to 
each of the pieces.
(will post completed artwork)

Enjoy your Tuesday!!


  1. awesome...looking forward to your completed artplay april! :)

  2. These are super! I really love what you've done with the cardboard. The texture and color will be the perfect background for your collage work. Have you ever used the corrugated cb to print with? I've read about that technique and wondered how it would work.
    Hope your day is wonderfully creative!

  3. I love these! What a treat it is to receive mail from you.

  4. Just LOVE your corragated, painted pieces of art just as they are! Spent the morning going through my studio to see if I could find any corragated cardboard and finally found some!!! Then I had to find a place for the stuff that's in it! Thanks for the inspiration!
