Because of our move from Austin to the Texas Hill Country, I didn’t participate in the Spring swap. It’s been so much fun getting back into making postcards. Here are the 10 that went into the mail today, plus one from earlier this year: #diypostcardswap
Birds in a Bush (water color, stamp, washi tape, water-color pencil), to California
Caution: tape! (watercolor, washi tape), to Washington state
Strange Golden Creature (mixed media), to Maryland. Never figured out where this guy came from. I added a border of washi tape, not scanned.
Parade (water color, washi tape, glitter gel crayon, confetti), to South Carolina
Untitled (drips), (watercolor, washi tape), to Ohio
“Blue Boat Home,” setting of a Unitarian Universalist hymn (graphic design, manipulated photos), to Ohio. You can listen to the song on YouTube
Autumn nap (collage, paper, washi tape), to Florida, where they don’t get autumn
Fractals, marker, to California
How to Rake Leaves (collage), to Cornwall, England.
Skating under the Aurora 2 (water color, glitter water paint), to Fife, Scotland (intended for possible use as the cover for a book of dream poems, a dream that has yet to be realized).
This was not part of the swap, but it’s the only other postcard I’ve made recently and it hasn’t been posted before.
Celebration (collage), to friends in Austin.
