iHanna's Postcard Swap Project Completed!

Hi friends!  I completed another iHanna postcard swap, and it was a blast!!!  Thought I would give you a little peek at my completed ten cards.  The inspiration for my theme was a college yearbook from the late fifties.  I've got this perfect sized circle punch that cuts out their adorable faces quite nicely.  I've done a few mixed media projects with these faces so far, and thought, why not add them to my postcards!?

I am also on a bit of a sailboat kick....simple, happy little boats with perky sails make me smile.  These cards are made of paper mache, nice and sturdy.  They hold up well to my layers, which include an old map glued down to the background, assorted acrylics, more papers, water soluble crayons, ink pens, and pencils.  I stamped the letters, which was a lot of fun, and kind of a different look for me!

I have received just a couple of the ten cards that are coming to me....when I get them all, I'll share them with you, as well as links to the artists, when available.  This really is a fun project...a great way to stretch your creative muscle.....please join us next time!  The more the merrier!!! 

Thank you, iHanna for organizing this fabulous connection to other creative beings!
