More DIY Painted Postcards

DIY Postcards for the Swap
These painted postcards are cousins of the blue paint postcards, and the previous four are their siblings! I have made four cards out of one sheet of painted paper, twelve in total this time. I always make a few extra when I’m in the flow but also because I enjoy keeping at least one for my collection.

Swap, swop!

I’ve used pink, green, yellow and turquoise acrylic paint and created something that looks like spring and happiness to me. Then I added some collage elements and finalized the four cards with a word translation from my English-Swedish dictionary! I’m really, really pleased with how they came out.

    I love your postcards! I was too nervous to sign up for the swap but maybe I will post a few of my postcards in the linky. :)

      Susan, oh too bad that you didn’t sign up!
      Your postcards are great and would have been perfect for this kind of swap. Maybe next time? :-)

    I wish I travelled more to have an excuse to send postcards home to modify. With this, I could send postcards to my husband while he’s travelling just to say “hi”

    They are lovely –
    Do we have to send them in an envelope?

      Sophie, so glad you signed up again and like my cards. Thanks! You don’t need to put your cards in an envelope if you don’t want to. I won’t. I’m taking my chances with the post handling. :-)

      Take care!

    These are so lovely, Hanna! As usual, your art is full of yummy color and lots of playfulness. Thank you for sharing and for hosting the swap again!

  7. You should definitely be proud of these – they’re all gorgeous. I love the painted bases – sometimes you can’t tell where the paint stops and the collaging begins. Fabulous springy cards!

    Hanna, I finished sewing my postcards this week, and I posted them on my blog at 2013 diy postcard swap. I love this type of project where I can do a few at a time and it adds up to a big stack of happiness. Thank you for facilitating this swap, a fun one!

    I adore your postcards, Hanna! And the rounded edges are so elegant. You have a magical sense of color and composition!!!

  12. Ohhhh, rounded corners! Excellent idea–and just beautiful close-ups, too, so we can get a good look at the details. Thanks, iHanna for this wonderful swap.
