More Crazy Flower Post Cards

A few more of the Crazy Flower post cards I made and sent.  This time I remembered to sign them before I sent them out into the world.  

The people I heard from said they loved getting something in the mail that wasn't a bill!  Success!  Objective met!

Crazy Flower Post Cards

Some more post cards I made using pieces from the "Flower Power" assignment from Carla Sonheim's Flower Crazy online class.  It was great fun to work in a way so different from how I usually work.  Kind of crazy, but I like them!

More Post Cards

Two more images of the collage post cards.  I have heard back from a few people who were delighted to receive something other than bills and adverts in the mail.  So far I've sent out 24 - one to Scotland and one to Australia!  I have about 23 more to send and maybe more as I collect more addresses.

I wish I had thought to sign the first group I sent out.  Too late.

Got to go make another 10 or 12 now ~

Post Card Project

I'm working at finding a use for the ever-growing pile of discarded paintings that I never finished or should never have finished or otherwise don't know what to do with.  It occurred to me that I could collage on them and cut them into post cards and send them out into the world!
I made a list of friends and family and even slight acquaintances who I thought might enjoy something in the mail other than advertisements and bills.  So I cut up a bunch and wrote out the addresses and slapped a stamp on them and away they went!
Kind of fun.  The first 14 are these ink-over-collage-over-painting type.  The next ten are different and the next group will be different still!
