Recent ATCs

Posted by andrea in: - Mail art

I don’t post my mail art projects here very often. Perhaps I should start. :)
These are ATCs I just finished for a swap with Zhenia. The theme: paper hearts.

For these I used old sheet music (Ave Maria, if you must know), painted with watercolours, acrylics and a tea bag, and sewed on pieces of an old book (copied onto photo paper). Some have crumpled tissue paper. I used to use the tissue thing a lot, but stopped doing so when I realized that everything I made looked exactly the same. I’m bringing it out of the closet just for a moment… :)

The Obligatory Blurb

My name is Andrea and I live in the Westboro area of Ottawa with my husband Mark and our dog Piper who is kind of a big deal on Instagram. We also have two human daughters: Emma (20) and Sarah (18). During the day I work as a writer at The Royal Ottawa Mental Health Centre. I am a longtime Ottawa blogger and I've occupied this little corner of the WWW since 1999. The Fishbowl is my whiteboard, water cooler, and journal, all rolled into one. I'm passionate about healthy living, arts and culture, family travel, great gear, good food, and sharing the best of Ottawa for families. I also love vegetables, photography, gadgets, and great design.
