International Post Card Swap Jan. 2015 - the sent cards
Musings on Reality from Canada
These are the postcards that I made to send out. I send out 10 and in return I receive 10. I will show what I have received so far over the weekend.
It always seems that what I envision making and what I actually make are 2 very different things. In the end what I make is similar to what I make other years- First I start with a Masterboard, that I add base layers of paint to, maybe collage some papers onto it, add some stamps, at some point I cut it up into 4x6 size cards and then add more to them individually. I started with acrylic paints light teal, dark teal and a salmon color. Then later I used Pan Pastel in a mustard yellow that really brought warmth and tied it all together. I also used some Liquid Pearls by Ranger that make a few things pop and some glitter Modge Podge which was because I could not find the plain Modge Podge. I added a quote that spoke to me at that moment. Then address them, write a note and stamps and out to the mailbox on the Tundra - that is what it looks like right now. The last 2 have magazine cuttings from Swansons Broth ad/ " Why do I cook?" So maybe you will want to try this some day, lots of fun and lots of good mail days!
