Cloth, Paper, Scissors, an inspiring mixed media/sewing/artistic craft magazine, recently listed a call to artists for art postcards. The postcards had to be 4in x 6in and at least 50% fabric, from that there it was up to the artist.
I enjoy themed art challenges because it forces me to work slightly outside my usual artistic parameters. I rarely combine sewing with my mixed media work, although I love the aesthetic. Mail art is always fun to create—and this seemed like a delightful opportunity to play. I’m curious what mail-handlers think of these tiny artwork that travel from point A to point B. I hope they find it interesting, something unusual to break the monotony of white envelopes and brown boxes—I hope it isn’t an annoyance.
