Postcards Given and Received

Yesterday, I talked about signing up for iHanna’s 2013 Spring DIY Postcard Swap.

I received my second postcard today!

This comes from Marrianna from Red Dancer Studio.

It says “Flowers were at my mother’s assisted living Easter party. 3/31/13”

I love it!

I think it’s really special that Marrianna incorporated a treasure from her life into her postcard art. I am reminded of holidays spent with relatives in assisted living and nursing homes. These situations are often bittersweet – which makes these moments all the more precious!

Yellow is one of my favorite colors. The background paper looks like a sort of tribal sun design to me. It complements the roses nicely.

I am so in love with stitching in postcard pieces. The texture is great to touch. I would like to use some stitching in my future pieces.

Thank you so much, Marrianna!

As for what I made:

Here are two of the postcards that I created.

They are inspired by the Lilac Festival we have here in Rochester, NY in May.

I used mixed media paper, acrylic paint, scrapbook paper, washi tape, mod podge, and Uni Ball Vision Elite black pen.

I can’t wait to see what comes next!

Love, Cori!
