Blue Altered Vintage Postcards

Time to write the addresses by iHanna, of - Copyright Hanna Andersson

Observant readers might have noticed that in my pink postcard post I only featured five out of the ten postcards I made for the DIY Postcard Swap I host. So let’s take a look at the rest of the altered vintage postcards today.

Most of them have more blue than pink, hence the title of this post. The last two are predominantly blue, which is a bit unusual for me. It’s not that I don’t like blue, because I do, it’s just not what I’m drawn to when I paint. But as you will see blue can be incorporated in my style more… And like I mentioned before, I see each postcard as a canvas for experimentation…

I hope that the recipients were happy when they got one of these in their mail box. I know I was happy when I made them, and I think most of them turned out pretty good. I left the vintage backside “as is”, so you can read where in Sweden the motif was photographed originally and see the yellowed paper, which I really like.

    Tack för inspiration! Jag var för sen att delta i år men har börjat “skapa” lite smått inför nästa år.Det är fantastiskt roligt och nu förstår jag varför jag sparat alla julkort genom åren och vad jag ska ha dem till. Är så länge mest collage men om jag tänker att det bara är på skoj och för mig själv går det lättare precis som du skrev.

    The one with the kitty clinging to the building and the pink dots in the sky, I want that one! I have absolutely zero chance of getting it, since I don’t participate in the swap, but I still want it. Sigh… ;-)
