iHanna's Postcard Swap!
Hi there! How could I forget to share the postcards I made for iHanna's DIY Postcard Swap???
What fun!!! Everyone involved in the swap makes 10 postcards, and then sends them to 10 other participants around the world that iHanna has matched us up with!!
For these, I used the paper mache postcards in our studio, gave them a base coat of black acrylic paint, and then just painted squares of various colors. I cut out random circles from scraps I had lying around, then finished the look with water soluble crayons and black marker. I sealed the front with a gloss finish to hopefully hold everything in place to survive the trip! Some of my cards are going to Spain, Canada, Germany and the US!
I've started receiving cards from my new friends and it's such a delightful surprise to find a colorful piece of art in the mailbox!!! Soon, I'll share those with you...but they are still coming!
Have a great day, and be sure to check out iHanna's blog for lots of inspiration!! Thank you, iHanna for such a fun project!!! Cheers!
