Last year I had so much fun creating and recieving postcards in iHanna's annual postcard swap that I joined up again this year. I meant to put a link and promote it before the deadline but I was sidelined with a nasty cold and didn't do much online work at all for a few weeks.
Unfortunately I didn't take many progress pics except a few on Instagram.
I started out with some Strathmore paper and used my Gelli Plate and acrylic paints with stencils to lay down a background. With several layers of paint on the papers I drew Mandalas strategically so that once it came to cutting the postcards to size there would be a fair portion of Mandala on each postcard. After drawing on the Mandalas - I applied a glaze with Glaze Medium to seal and put a shine over the entire card.
These are the 10 cards - 4"x6" - they are all hand addressed and fancied up with some of my favourite washi tapes on the backs.
I am excited to recieve my postcards!! Thanks for all your hard work organizing the swap Hanna!!
