Over the past four years or so I've collected a number of gardening magazines with landscaping ideas that are simply impractical for our climate, but instead I've found them quite useful for mail art purposes.
Before throwing them into the recycling I now pilfer the best pictures and turn them into envelopes. Earlier this week I was watching birds enjoy the sprinklers in the backyard and was inspired to make these birdy envelopes.
#46 of 365:
Birdy no. 1 is for Hannah in England...
#47 of 365:
Birdy no. 2 is for Ashley in Canada...
#48 of 365:
Birdy no. 3 will be on its way to Rusty in the USA...
#49 of 365:
...Whilst Birdy no. 4 has a much shorter journey to Jen in Queensland.
I'd also like to say a big thank you for all the comments and emails I've received in response to this project. I haven't yet had the opportunity to reply to everyone (I'm easily overwhelmed) but really appreciate the encouragement. I also wanted to let those people still waiting for something know that they will receive a piece of mail art from me - eventually.
I'm also still looking for more people to send mail art to, so if you'd like to receive something pretty and handmade in the post please email me with your details and I'll add you to my list.
