Postcards from ME!

Posted on Updated on

Heh. Like I’m all special or something.

I made and sent 10 postcards to various locations around the world last week. Yes, I was late dropping them in the mail, but I DID send them. I figure that the reason I have only received one (1) postcard so far is because I sent mine out late. Seems fair, but I am getting grumpy every time I open my mailbox but don’t find anything in there bud ads for black Friday sales.

Anyway, now that my kvetching is over, here are the postcards I sent this time:

Beginnings…

Progress…

10 (ten) finished postcards, ready to fly away…

Yes, the writing is all Bob Dylan quotes.

I’m a bit obsessed right now…listening to as much of his extensive recordings as I can get my hands on.  I firmly believe that listening to Dylan makes one smarter. I know there are those who don’t care for Dylan’s music (my dear friend Judy who lives for the theater comes to mind), but there are enough of us to commiserate if we would like to. I’m just seriously into his music and writing so very much…and his words are all too relevant right now…

Right…6 of the postcards started out as blank, pre-printed. postcards I bought last year. The other four were made from cracker boxes cut to size, with the printing covered by gesso. Backgrounds were watercolor, acrylic, or sprayed fabric paint.

Stamps, stencils, washi tape, and Liquitex ceramic stucco mixed with neon craft paint for the pink & orange stars.

I love playing with all this stuff…
