Postage Stamp Art, paper arts


August 6 & 7, 2011 Studio Tour Participant

Although postage stamp art doesn't fit into given categories all that well, Repurposed Art, Recycled Art, Paper, Fiber and Other are categories it's landed in on most occasions.  I think unique might be close!

Old and not so old, canceled postage stamps from around the world are my medium.  Once soaked free of envelope remnants and dried flat, with color, design, style, shape and size all taken into consideration, stamps are trimmed and clipped.  The tiny pieces are then fit together into new pieces of art.
