Some Postcards Are in the Mail....

I'm just popping in to show you some postcards I've been working on for Hanna's swap. I can show them now that I've received the addresses they're going to because none of them are people I know.

Group 1:

Group 2:

Group 3:

Group 4:

Group 5

These were a lot of fun to make and mostly I used the cardboard from packaged foods as the base. I tried to keep these postcards fairly flat (not too much added to make them thick) as many of them are going out of the country. Mainly I just painted, stamped and collaged. Do you think they're too plain? Group 4 and 5 had spray painted backgrounds and I went over that with a light wash of cream to take them down a bit. I hope the recipients like them.

I'll be back tomorrow with my journal pages. I don't want to overwhelm you with photos!!
