The background paper for this postcard is from my erosion bundle. The rest is all recycled from various books and projects. It's not real mail art unitl it's posted so to be in to win all you have to do is leave a comment saying you'd like it to appear in your mailbox!
At the start of the year I signed up to take part in the erosion bundle project.
The aim was to gather some items together and leave them out in nature to disintegrate. The bundles stayed in their position for about 6 months being battered by rain, baked by sun and torn at by the wind.
Finally we brought them in and with great anticipation unravelled them to see what remained.
I was especially pleased with my results!
The challenge was to then make something with the contents of our bundles and display them on our blogs August 1st (yes, I am late!) and also links to them on the Erosion Bundle Project blog.
So what became of the tea, ginger and eucalyptus dyed papers?
I made the above postcard and a book, with the addition on some map pages as these are my current fixation! I love maps, the more colourful and lined the better!
The string from my project was used to bind it and to wrap around it. The button (found on the footpath) acts as the closure. I've already used some of the string and fabric in Debrina's altered book for the Pulp Redux Collaboration, such georgous stuff I wish I had double my bundle!
Thanks to Kris Henderson for organising this project!
