I’m not sure if I should call this a postcard tutorial or simply a postcard collage inspiration thing, but here it is! A new youtube video about how to make your own DIY Postcards. I think it’s more of a tutorial than any other video I’ve made so far.

How to make your own collage postcards - a video tutorial by iHanna #diypostcardswap

When you watched you can be the judge of what this video should be called… Me, I just filmed it, edited it, added music and for the first time: did a voice over instead of talking while filming it. Both are fun and presents their own set of challenges, but I think voice over is the way to go in the future. I had fun making this!

Voice over (adding the talk to the video after it’s cut together) makes editing easier and it also easier to make the video itself shorter by cutting it up into many smaller clips. I’m really hoping it will be inspiring and interesting, and give you some hints on what you can create yoruself if you’re new to cut and paste collage…

I will post a part 2 very soon, also about cut and paste but inspired by brighter and bolder colors. The collage I make in this video is inspired by fall colors: vintage and withered, black and beige… Have a look, and let me know below what you think.

It’s always hard to create while filming, but I think my DIY patchwork Postcard Collage turned out pretty okay in the end. Also, I re-designed the header of my YouTube channel and I’m feeling pretty stoked about it and making videos right now. I hope you want to subscribe, and give the video a thumbs up – that helps me get more viewers. My previous video was the book review of a collage activity book, so it’s rather fitting that this one is me doing a collage, right?

Here’s the finished postcard from the tutorial (and as I’m posting this it’s way after noon here, just sayin)…
