Painted Postcards | Happy Greetings Postcards

All my Painted Postcards are finished and ready to be sent out. The last day to sign up for the DIY Postcard Swap is October 22, and after that I’m sitting down and sending out your addresses. And writing addresses on my own postcards too of course. Yay!

I am so excited that so many of you have joined this year! I’ve spotted some wonderful postcards on Instagram, and shared a few of them over on my FB Page.

I’ve already shared eight of my own postcards (here and here) and today I’m sharing the last two plus two extras with some happy greetings. I really like how most of my postcards turned out, and wanted to share them as individual pieces and turned right, not just as I painted them four on a piece of paper. They’re in a yummy pile on my table right now, waiting for stamps and addresses.

Not going for perfect

Well, I really liked how most of my postcards came out, like I said, but I’m not sure about these ones. Painting couples and their relation to each other is much harder than doing a single figure. But I hope the receivers will enjoy them anyways…

DIY Postcard no 1: Life is looking up, by iHanna.

My greatest beauty secret is being happy with myself. I don’t use special creams or treatments – I’ll use a little bit of everything. It’s a mistake to think you are what you put on yourself. I believe that a lot of how you look is to do with how you feel about yourself and your life. Happiness is the greatest beauty secret.

DIY Postcard no 2: Say Hi to everyone you meet, by iHanna.

I believe in pink. I believe that laughing is the best calorie burner. I believe in kissing, kissing a lot. I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day and I believe in miracles.

DIY Postcard no 3: Hello my dear, by iHanna.

Learn to enjoy every minute of your life. Be happy now. Don’t wait for something outside of yourself to make you happy in the future. Think how really precious is the time you have to spend, whether it’s at work or with your family. Every minute should be enjoyed and savored.
Earl Nightingale

    hello, hanna. You made some realy beautiful cards. I don’t like pink very much, but combined with yellow and orange and blue pink becomes mellov and more likable (to me).
    I have a question, because I remember I read something about this on your blog – there are ATC and another sort of cards of bigger format, but I forgot their name. Can you help me? Thank you.

      Hmm… not sure if I can help you if you don’t like PINK! Hehe. Do you mean ACEO (Art Card Originals and Editions) maybe? I haven’t done those so not sure that’s what you mean. I made art journal cards once for a trade, are those what you refer to? Let me know if you figure out what they’re called, I wanna know too. :-)

    Just to let you know I posted my cards this morning.

      Yay Mandy, that is good news indeed!

      I love hearing about people going to the post office and handing over their beautiful mail art for the swap!
