Arting for 365 Day 98: Stamps

Day 98 (8/4/12): StampedGoal: To create one piece of art each day for 365 consecutive days

My grandma Minnian, who has long ago passed away, was a big collector of stamps. She wasn’t your traditional stamp collector though. The ones she kept were those she received in the mail on letters. They are worthless in terms of monetary value, but are fabulous miniature works of art, records of history, and a great reminder of her.

In the past I’ve incorporated them into a few projects and thought I’d pull them out again (along with some other stamps folks have given me along the way) for day 98’s piece.

Using remnants from my day 89 cut paper piece, bits of cards and envelopes, and grandma’s stamps, I collaged this 8 x 10″ design. I love the bold colors and lines in the work, but feel like I haven’t quite figured out the perfect way to use the stamps. I guess this just means I’ve got some more experimentation to do.

Original piece available for purchase.
