Mail Artist Spotlight: Becky L

Mail, Mail Artist Spotlight

I receive a lot of amazing things in my mailbox almost daily. I thought it would be nice to feature some beautiful mail art here and there.

Becky sent me this colorful envelope. She is one of my oldest pen pals; we have been exchanging mail for 3 years. It’s been awhile since we exchanged mail! With all good mail pals, there are some breaks here and there when life gets crazy or inspiration is low.

Mail art doesn’t have to be anything more than a pretty envelope. Becky has sent me her fair share of ephemera (like a handful of security envelopes with a purple pattern that I still use in collages!). She sent me this letter in an awesome envelope just to let me know that she was thinking of me.

I love that this envelope matches the vibe of the Janis Joplin stamp. A psychedelic, colorful theme! I don’t know about Becky but I always try to match my postage stamps to a finished collage.

Becky also has a blog about mail art and other things. She posts a lot of great how-tos!
