Postcard Swap 2012!
Howdy! I've had a blast (yet again) participating in iHanna's annual postcard swap! This year, I made the theme "It is within you." This is the message I included on each card, with some wild paper collage faces. I used mostly my own hand painted papers, but included just a couple of scrapbooking papers too. WHAT FUN!
I used posterboard as the base....and after creating the art, glued another piece of posterboard to the back, for sturdiness. Their long noses and crooked lips make me smile. This one looks like he is sneering....but he's much nicer than he looks. :)
These little darlins are going out to places like California, Arkansas, Sweden, Canada, South Africa and North Carolina! And one is going to a fellow artist right here in Iowa! How did that happen?! Love it!
I highly recommend doing a swap like this, if you've never tried it before. It really does help to get the creative juices flowing, and it's so nice to reach out to other creative souls. I love the thought of the postman catching a glimpse of one of these little guys in his mailbag, and wondering....hmmmmm......
Soon, I'll be back to show you what I received from my fellow participants. They are still coming in from around the globe! A big THANK YOU to iHanna for organizing the swap!
