It’s one day before the Liberate Your Art postcard swap deadline! Sunday is swap day and Monday the liberation of art begins. Yay! This will be the last mail art update of the 2016 swap, so enjoy the beautiful bounty!
Hey, no one can say “It’s not the Mona Lisa” to this envelope, from Linda in California.
PJ in Tennessee added air brush and sparkly stars to her white cardboard.
Kitty in New York added some nice layers to a manila envelope. Love the butterfly stamp!
This beauty is from Christine in Canada. Very zen! Front…
…and back. The words on the flap: She collects dazzle from dust. Lovely!
How about some graphic art! Anna in the UK is 16 years old. Anna, your art is amazing! Everyone is going to want one of your cards. You have a wonderful future in art!
Jane in North Carolina created a collage with a lovely central theme: Art is in the heart.
I couldn’t tell if Kathie in North Carolina used a pre-printed paper, until I opened the envelope and looked at her art. Yep! It’s her art on the envelope – gorgeous!!
I love the back, too…
Jen from Virginia shows the artistic nature of letters and words. Yes, I agree: Art is absolutely joy!
Susan in Texas left her mark!
I love all of the little messages on this envelope from Nancie in New Jersey. This is the back…
…and the front is equally wonderful.
Charlotte in Maryland must be dreaming of spring with this beautiful green collage…
“Let your art go… Set it free… Liberate.” Love it! From Susan in California.
This was a sneaky envelope… The postmark was California but it was from Sea, who lives in Canada but was in Panama at the time of mailing. Confusing! But gorgeous!
Chrysta in New Jersey went for full coverage. Bright and beautiful!
Flowers are a good way to go! Jill in Pennsylvania created a lovely garden…
As did Vicki in New York!
Here is some wonderful color from Lynn in Pennsylvania. Magic!
Karen in Arizona submits food as art. It looks like she printed directly on the envelope, or maybe did a transfer? It’s really different! Love it!
How about some hugs and kisses? From Teena in Virginia.
Those of you from prior years will remember Natasha from California! I always love getting her envelopes. A cheery message this year!
Suzette in Texas created this gorgeous collage of her images along with printed papers. The repetition of size works really well…
I like how she worked in the USPS stickers on the front, too. As if they are part of the collage. No end to creativity!
And one final one, not envelope art but stamps. I love it when I get to see stamps and cancellations from a new country – this one is from Edan in Israel. So glad to have you in the swap, Edan!
Almost there! Final mail call will be tomorrow afternoon. And then it’s on to the swap… What we’ve all been waiting for!
