More MasterBoard MailArt

A couple more postcards made for a swap on Swap-Bot.  I made a "serendipity" MasterBoard with printed papers, doodles with metallic sharpies and Indian ink pens, acrylic paints, stamping, and a slight touch of glitter glue.  I then cut it up to make postcards and use for other projects.

More Magilla

Another page from Magilla (my gluebook - notebook - smash book).  Just random things including cutouts, stamping, punches, doodles, textures, and fruit stickers.  Many of the bits and pieces are from items I received in the mail from friends and swap-bot members.

It is fun to just glue stuff down and not think about it too much.

I am adding page links to my nav bar at the top of this blog for my various journals and such.

Be sure to visit "Magilla" ... one of my summer projects this year.   "Magilla" is a notebook, gluebook, smashbook, memory book, part journal and part art playground.

MasterBoard Postcards


Here are the postcards that I made from the MasterBoard shown in my previous post.  Mixed media including: printed papers, acrylic paint, stamping, Sharpie doodles, punches, glitter glue, collaged images and text, washi tape, and little doodled sleepy time night caps.


I sent these 2 postcards off for a mailart swap at Swap-Bot.

Masterboard and Doodle Zine

This is an example of what is now being called a "Masterboard" ... about 10 years ago it was called "Serendipity".  You make a Masterboard (or Serendipity) by gluing your paper scraps and collage bits to a larger foundation (usually card stock), adding some paint, stamping, doodles, texture, stencil work, and whatever else you feel compelled to use.  Then you cut it up to make backgrounds for your other art (postcards, book covers, ATCs, inchies, etc...)

I made this one for a July masterboard postcard swap at Swap-Bot

This weekend, I also finished up my latest mini-zine: Doodle Zine I, so it has been an artful weekend.

Happy Sunshine Doodle

Happy Summertime!  It's been a scorcher in Atlanta ... with more of the same planned for the coming week. 

I am just putting the finishing touches on a "Doodle Zine" for a swap over at swap-bot.   I try to make at least one zine each year.  I believe this is my 11th one. 

I always print extras for additional trades ... so if you have a zine (or just some doodles) - give me a holler & we can trade.

Doodle Mandala

Started out as a mandala ... but I think it looks more like a snowflake. Doodled with a Sharpie marker and a Super Fine PITT Indian ink pen.
