International Postcard Swap
Hannah lives in Stockhom, Sweden and has a fabulously creative blog. I found Hannah through my ZNE friend Eli Wain on Facebook, of course.
And Hannan's swap? Postcards! 160 swappers signed up from throughout the world. Amazing! We were assigned the task of making 10 postcards, and Hannah emailed us the addresses. My cards, went out all over the world. Boulder, Colorado; Suffolk, England;Northamptonshire, England, California; Rochester,New York; Annandale,Australia; Highlands Ranch, Colorado;Downers Grove, Illinois; Iha Santiago, Cape Verder; Pasadena, California.
My art post cards are shown above, as assortment of Freida Kahlo Art Revolution, made from San Francisco Museum of Art flyers I picked up while visiting at the ZNE Convenzione, May 2009. And I'm into the ransome note style lettering. The base was made from scrap mat board and an old game board. I gessoed the base, layered a vintage book page, added ochre fluid acrylic, and sponged some brown staz on ink. There are little pieces of scrapbook paper, looking like rulers, along the top and bottom. Layers of matte gel medium and soft gel medium.
I've received 4 cards back so far! First "a Sunny Hello" from Amanda in Minnetonka, MN
