Call For ..um.. Soul Clippings?

Haha, okay maybe that’s a little overdramatic, but I’m working on a little mixed media project right now, and I need your help. It started as a personal piece that kinda evolved into the total opposite, as tends to happen :) 
So, if it is no longer about me, then it must be about you …right. Here’s what I’m after: I would like for you to take a little time and a magazine and cut out 5 words that describe you - both positive, negative, and anything in between and over. Place them in an envelope, and mail them to me:

Vinny Strawberry
Box 712
Estevan, Saskatchewan
S4A 2A6 Canada

AND, in return, I will mail you some sort of token of my appreciation that I promise will be better than a bill - so make sure to include your return name and address with submissions.


Check back often so you can keep up to date on the progress of our piece! ;)

Welcome.
I’ve been creating art journal pages for a little over a year now and have obsessively filled about 4 books in that time. I had no direction for them, no real purpose except to play and explore art, which is relatively new to me. A year later, I still have no real direction, but I do get glimpses of bigger ideas and projects I’d like to dig a little deeper into. Things that I never would have had the guts to even think of let alone try without having played in my art journals.
This is one of those bigger ideas.
We had a space that needed to be filled, I had an Bare With Meart journal page that would work well there, so I re-created it.
In an effort to avoid psyching myself out, I didn’t think about it too much; turns out there are a lot of things that should be thought about, haha.
Obviously I can’t use all the same pieces of scraps that I used on the original art journal page, so I had to get creative with a few aspects. ‘Welcome’ was the first one… I thought about changing the word, but stuck with it. As it turned out I had some stencils just the right size, and with a little colour mixing I had a nice matchy copper. I used more patterned paper on this that the page because it’s two pieces and I wanted them be somewhat interesting on their own. Gesso, tissue/pattern paper and some pastels for colour round out the rest of the piece. I’m happy with how it turned out, and it’s even hanging! So exciting. I’m looking forward to possibly expanding some of my other art journal pages to canvas pieces as well.. now to choose which ones…

Mail Art with Wings
Thus, my latest art mail attempt. Although this was fun to make, it totally did not turn out as wonderfully as I had envisioned… but live and learn, it’s all about growth, blah blah blah. All said and done, I stashed it full of goodies to make up for it :)
The theme was wings and I had a million butterfly stamps (for some reason) just wanting for ink. I envisioned these lovely butterflies lifting off and taking the letter all across the world by wing. As it turns out, I’m not as brave as my creative imagination and I chickened out and glued the majority of the butterfly wings down.. mostly because I didn’t want the recipient to receive an envelope of wingless insect bodies after the postal service was done with it. I did however leave the ones on the front free to fly and word is they fared pretty well. Guess I’ll have to be a little braver next time :)

Outgoing!
My lovely mother-in-law let me raid her basement cupboard for goodies (which included a 1965 Eaton’s catalog!) I made her this postcard with some of the bits and pieces :)
