Hey, Mr. Mailman, bring me some mail! And, please, not the bills you're so fond of stuffing into my mailbox. Nope. I want the real stuff, thank you very much. But...to get some "real" mail, I need to send some. So, I joined up for Hanna's postcard swap!
I collect postcards that are ready to be trashed - the ones advertising different events. I often find piles of them in various places long after the even they're advertising has taken place. I also keep a stash of cardboard from cereal boxes and the like, ready to be cut up and arted up.
I began coloring with some twinkling H2Os but they frustrated me no end, so I switched over to water soluble colored pencils. I spent a good deal of my travel time to and from Pennsylvania this weekend, outlining them with a sharpie to make them "pop" a bit. I used stamp pads along the edges and then lettered them with a marker. They make me smile!
