The next three cards came from Sara Grob in Flauwil, Switzerland. Sara is one of my pen friends, and I have always admired her creativity.

We still have until August 29th to accept your submissions for the exhibit, so if you have something you’d like to contribute, send it along! (Check the About page for guidelines.) Also, if you’ve mailed something and not seen it on this page, leave me a comment and I’ll double check to make sure I haven’t missed anything.

Thanks again, and I hope you have a creative week!

We had several great submissions while I was on vacation, so let’s catch up with more mail art!

First, from Suzlee Ibrahim in Malaysia. I’ll show both sides of the card because I think stamps, postmarks, and air mail stickers are also interesting! Thank you, Suzlee.

Next, our youngest contributor, Elizabeth Schwartz, age 9. This one is postmarked San Francisco. Nice work, Elizabeth, thank you for participating!  If any other children are interested in sending their art, we would love to see it!

The next one is titled “Book Love” and is from Jill Wiggins, in Austin, Texas. Thank you so much, Jill, and thank you for your description of your process in the message!

Our next artist is Consuelo Debiagi from Campinas, Brazil.  Lieratura Literatura. The encaustic technique, using wax, will take a polish to preserve the shine. It’s lovely to see in person. Thank you, Consuelo!

This next one is from Anna Dana in Sausalito, California. There is so much to see on the envelope as well as the card! I’ll show you the whole piece:

We’re still accepting submissions for the next four weeks, so if you’re interested, there’s plenty of time left. It’s looking like this display will be an amazing one, and there is a possibility that it will travel to other library branches when September is over. Many thanks again to everyone who has sent their art!

Thanks to all of you! We are still accepting submissions for our display until the end of August, so you still have plenty of time to send something to us. I will be on break from documenting submissions until the beginning of August, so if you mail something in the next two weeks, I will post it when I get back.
Spread the word…. mail art is lots of fun!
