Cool!   I particularly like that you have used such a minsicule amount of the yellow on the Dakota stamp just to define the figure.  Go Bradford  Thumbs Up

I was very active in Mail Art in the 1990s and I've been making artistamps for awhile. Here are some of mine:

I've written a couple of tutorials about it:

Welcome Chasenfratz!

But please do not just link us to your content, tell us all about it!  Otherwise the forum ends up looking like Facebook and we don't get to find out any more.

There are lots of people here who would like to learn and any details gleaned from our experts are greedily received  :-)  Even the experts like to swap the technical stuff so please tell us more.

Did you know there is an annual competition to design the Forum Anniversary stamp?  Take a look at the members bit of the forum.

This year its our 5 Years Anniversary so plenty to be inspired by.

I Second that!

I hope we have a huge response to this year's competition, ALL members are welcome to submit entries.

Don't forget you can collaborate - and if like last year you have a winning idea that you can't put into artwork yourself Alan and I will do our best to get the idea put into production by creating the artwork for you.

It couldn't be easier  Wink
My Etsy shop - Far-fetched Philately - is now open again :-)

Thanks for the welcome!

I've been interested in postage stamps since I was young and I think they are a great way to learn history and geography. When I got involved in Mail Art in 1989, of course I was intrigued by artistamps and I started to make them as part of my Mail Art output. I stayed in Mail Art for about 10 years and have a pretty good collection of artistamps I traded with other people. I'm interested in handmade journals and albums now as part of of my craft output and I'm planning to experiment with ways to put my collections of real stamps and cinderella stamps into albums. I also like to collect trading stamps and other types of small paper ephemera such as postcards, stationery, etc.

I've made artistamps with a photocopy/collage method and a computer graphics method but my favorite way to make them is with rubber stamps. As part of an art show in 2000, I had a series of graphics that portrayed the fronts and backs of fantasy postcards. I made faux postmarks and stamps as part of the graphic statement and that inspired me to start a small rubber stamp company for which I design stamps. Some of my first designs were these faux postmarks and some stamps designed to make faux postage easier to make.

Over the years I make new faux postage designs from time to time along with other stamp designs to use in crafts. In 2004 it was a big thrill for me to design two special cancellation marks for a Route 66 Festival in Tulsa to be used by the Tulsa Post office to cancel souvenir postcards and envelopes.

Even though I haven't done Mail Art in a long time I still like to make the stamps and use them in cards and things like that. I may start doing Mail Art again on a small scale, who knows.

I just completed an article for RubberStampMadness magazine on the theme of Halloween Faux Postage, so if you get that magazine look for it this coming fall!

It would be wonderful to see some examples of your work here chasenfratz.

Links are great but photos better  Big smile
Very probably the worst ever.

Photos of stamps make the forum come to life, however there are various pages here where people have removed their pictures for whatever reason and we just have a big empty box (or worse a holding frame with a photo of a kitten!) in their place. 

This is such a shame as it makes it look firstly as if members couldn't care less about how the forum looks, and secondly it is so frustrating for genuine collectors to think they have discovered a goldmine of reference material only to find it had been removed.

Whether pictures have been removed for copyright reasons or because they have been uploaded in an incompetent way, or the member has left the forum and taken their 'toys' with them so none of us can play with them anymore; I would rather have no pictures than a forum littered with these eyesores.
