My Colorful Collage Postcards

Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around.

DIY Postcard: Smile by iHanna

Every bit of paper on these collage postcards makes me happy. There are patterns, imagery, tape, stickers and words mixed together into the best kind of DIY Postcards (if you ask me).

The way I made these postcards is similar to how I do many of my art journal cut and paste pages, as show in my part of 21 secrets this fall. In that class I demonstrate what kind of papers I collect, how I plan the collage and how I finish it. But back to postcards.

Sorry if you have already seen some of my colorful collage postcards in my previous posts (Creating a Series of Postcards and How to Finish a Postcard), but in this post I’m showing most of them individually – mostly because I myself enjoy looking at them over and over again.

A DIY Postcard in the mail is like getting a smile from a stranger…

If you feel like swapping postcards with me and my peeps there is still time to sign up for my DIY Postcard Swap fall 2015 – you have until the weekend to do so.

Wishing you lots of happy mail!

    These are gorgeous! I can see why you keep looking at them: They are instant smiles. I’m so excited to participate in the swap – but I need to get cracking. Great inspiration!

    These are the best kind of postcards, Hanna, and totally you! I am taking 21 Secrets this fall and so enjoyed your “lesson”! It is so lovely to watch you do what comes so naturally to you, and I’m sure I’m not the only one who aspires to make collages like yours. I’ll tag you when I post my “art journal” collage a la iHanna! XO And thanks for hosting another swap.

    Just came across your site. I am about to start on my first glue book and have been doing lots of cutting and organizing. Your post cards are beautiful and I can’t wait to see more of your glue book. Thanks for sharing yourself with others through your art. barbara.
