Postcards!

I love postcards especially handmade art postcards. 
When these postcards arrived in the mail, I couldn't stop admiring every detail about them and be inspired. 
These were sent through the postcard swap earlier this month.

Enjoy!

Terrie Purkey from Creative Explorer
I just love the collaging and use of mix media in this piece. The corrugated textured heart really stands out against the neat text background.



Anita from Zafaran's Dream Doses
This postcard is so beautifully painted and the detail is astonishing. I can't stop looking at this!



Lorinda Fraser from Everyday Endeavours
I love the mixed media background and the collaging of the different pieces especially the stamps. This reminded me of when I used to collect stamps and now I would love to incorporate stamps into a future art piece.


Thanks to all these talented for the postcards! It certainly made my day when I received it :)

Thanks for the kind comment and I'm so glad you enjoyed the cards - I love doing mail swaps and being in connection with people all over the world. I also got one from Zafaran, a beautifully painted bird. She's a talented lady. And Lorinda and I are long-time mail art buddies - she always sends something creative.

If you enjoyed this, more mail art swaps can be found at Mail Me Some Art.blogspot.com - Karen hosts ongoing themed swaps that are easy and fun.....maybe we'll be swap partners again!
