The Great DIY Postcard Swap (Part 1)


12 postcards in process for Hanna's DIY Postcard Swap 2010

This project marks my second Mail Art project and my first official art swap! I wanted to share the almost-finished postcards for Hanna's DIY Postcard Swap! To create them, I painted sheets of bristol paper with blog printing inks. They have a bit of a matte texture. After cutting the paper down to about 4.5 x 6.5" cards, I stamped with handmade eraser stamps + found stamps, collaged images + words. So these are work-in-process. I made a few extras just in case. Next I'll add a bit of neocolors and doodle + write something on the postcards. I'll post the finished cards soon! Since the ink is water-based, I'll mail the postcards in envelopes to ensure that they don't get damaged (wet + wintery here). If not, I'd have to seal them.
