Making mixed media postcards is fun and easy to do!
Here I used a variety of materials: scrapbooking paper, an image from a magazine, rub-on transfers, ink painted deli papers, markers and more.
Postcards made from recycling artworkI must confess that I made these two 4x6" postcards by cutting old up old artwork. See, I have so many paintings and collages in drawers that I have created over the years. There's not room on my walls for all of them and I've given away others. Some I choose just to place in my drawers of collage fodder.
Using old drawings, paintings and collages for mail art will give them new lifeFind an interesting area of an old artwork and cut it up. Cut it into 4x6" sections for postcards or smaller for Artist Trading Cards. Add other collage elements or marks on top to tie the piece together.
I made these for the postcard swap at Artists in Blogland.
