Art Cover Exchange
Ive just joined an Envelope swap group A.C.E (Art cover exchange) www.artcoverexchange.org
All the people in the group swap decorated envelopes with each other. Usually on the theme we each like.
But sometimes on what the postage stamp has on it. Like the Year of the Snake envelope. Pam matched it with the postage stamp. Most of the art is hand drawn or scanned images of an original piece of art from each member. I like to add washi tape and other bits. I think I will bind all the envelopes I receive together using the "Coptic" stitch. Once I have enough, that is. With the "Coptic" stitch it can be a progressive stitch, adding another envelope when I get it. So in the end (where ever that is) the book will resemble a snake.
