Paint Party Friday....more Mail Art and Welcome Autumn!

Hello and Happy Paint Party Friday! This week I am sharing more mail art I made for the swap in the True Free Spirit workshop. 'Be Sweet' and 'Sing Ur Heart Song' are done on cardboard, 4x6, with pens, pencils, acrylic paints and coated with beeswax. Making and sending mail art is so much fun! I really enjoyed this sweet swap.
My latest altered PEZ dispenser, Secret Keeper, will be heading out to her new home in New Zealand this week. I love how she turned out with the little window on her chest where her secrets are kept. I'm now working on a Day of the Dead PEZ and have lots more in mind.
And for anyone who is looking ahead to Halloween, I am hosting a Haunted Halloween Doll Challenge this year...click on the link for more details. All doll art is welcome as long as it features a Haunted Doll theme. Hope you'll join me!
Thanks so much for stopping by, hope you have a great weekend and Happy Fall Equinox! xo

Your mail art is adorable. I love the whimsical feel to it and the vibrant colours - It's funny to see it beside your gorgeously evil little pez critter - congrats on selling her to New Zealand (well, to the purchaser obviously not the whole country!)

I was just commenting to myself, "What a sweet face she has. . ." - and then I read her shirt.
Darling!

I find the contrast between your sweet little paintings and the striking altered sculpture very interesting. However, your color scheme and poses are very similar. Blessings!
