Gothic Arches.

I have recently been accepted at a juried mail-art site, and this is a sample from one of the first art swaps I've joined there. it's for 4x6-inch gothic arches that had to include a vocabulary flash card. Mine are little French/English ones from the 1960s or 1970s.
I've made seven of them, six for the swap and one for the host, Annie, as a gift. "Doigt" means "finger," by the way, which I thought was amusing. And I love picking on photos of little kids, by calling them devils or brats in my assemblages.
This is made with printed papers, vintage book text, a photocopy of a vintage photo, melted tulle, caran d'ache, alcohol inks on acetate, colored staples, graphite pencil, permopaque marker, a paint sample chip, metallic sharpie, acrylic paints, and more. The cardboard from a box of granola bars is the substrate.

  1. Hi Amy! This is the first time I've visited your blog and I LOVE it! You are so cool. I love what you write, I love what you create, I love your realness, I even love your typewriters (I'll have to post some pix of mine for you). I'm a fan. I'm adding you to my links so I can pester you more. You are very talented in so many ways and I know you are going to be a lot of inspiration for me. Don't dread tomorrow, it's one day closer to the next weekend. Have a great week!
