postcard swap, part one

Hello love mixed media postcard

You're a star mixed media postcard

Free mixed media postcard

In February I took part in a postcard swap arranged by Artists in Blogland. I’m still waiting for the third and final postcard to arrive, so I don’t want to post the ones I received yet, but I can show the ones I sent out 🙂

The only rules were that they had to be 4 x 6″ and handmade. I used the swap as an opportunity to practise working small, and to try out some new-to-me techniques. I’m pretty happy with the results.

All the postcards are made using a combination of watersoluble crayons, acrylics, gesso, pencil, stencils and stamps.

Which one is your favourite?


  1. They are gorgeous Carin… we are doing a little postcard swap with our mixed media group at the moment…. and they are such fun… can I have two favorites… I can’t decide… I love the heart and the bird… but the star is pretty cool as well… looking forward to seeing what you received in return…

  2. How can I pick a favorite when I like them all?! If you twist my arm I guess I’ll pick the star…or maybe the bird…or would it be the heart. Do you see my dilemma?

  3. So cool! I’d love to get any of these in the mail. I’m torn between the star and the bird. Hmm… let me try to pick. I’ll be right back 🙂

    Wait. Does the bird say “free”? “I’m as free as a bird, now”. Yes, the bird. Definitely the Free Bird. 🙂
