Every week I watch the Sunday Postcard Art themes. Once in a while they play right into my artistic play that I have happening right at the moment. It’s what happened for this week. The theme this week is to make a postcard as an envelope or faux envelope or add an envelope to the postcard, etc.
That is exactly what I have been trying this week. The front of my postcard is the “envelope” side with the postage and the address.
I saw actual envelopes similar to this on Pinterest and thought to give it a try as a postcard. I finally made an address thingy to show how my mail art might look with the address.
I was so pleased, I had to give it another try today.
I really struggle with this sort of thing as I generally DO NOT like the piece with just the paint on it. It’s all I can do to keep myself from wasting any more of my life on it and toss it to the trash. But when I start stamping and adding Washi Tape, I fall in love.
Both postcards look the same on the back for now.
I can write a lot more on these postcards than I can when the address is on this side (like a normal postcard). I’ll decorate this side more when I know where these postcards might be going.
Thanks so much, Rosie, for this great theme. Perfect timing so that I can play along. It’s been quite a long time.
