Postcards from the edge....

Postcards for  the Liberate Your Art project

You might recall a few posts back, I mentioned a project I had come across thanks to browsing through other art blogs one Paint Party Friday - Kat from Kat Eye View had invited fellow art bloggers to participate in a project whereby we send her 5 of our pictures printed onto postcards which she then sends out to all the other participants so that eventually you receive five postcards from five different artists.

I bought a book of watercolour postcards today and set about printing off my five favourite (so far) from the Walkies series.

It also seemed like the perfect opportunity to try out the rubber script stamp I bought online recently from Merly Impressions, together with an ink stamp evocatively called London Fog!  I had seen so many lovely pieces again via Paint Party Friday using script and initially thought everyone in the world except me was a talented writer but Wrightstuff kindly let me into the rubber stamp secret!

I tried really hard to get the pictures in the dead centre of the postcard sized template - but as you can see most of them are slightly off centre and I used the entire book of postcards (12 pages) to end up with these 5 plus a few which were even more off centre - so apologies in advance to whoever receives these that they aren't quite right!

Oh, and I hadn't noticed but S kindly pointed out that the ones in landscape above and below are printed upside down - I forgot about the side you write on having a box for the stamp and lines for the address. But if you flip it over from the bottom instead of turning it round from the side it looks the right way up (if that makes sense!)

I can't wait to get them sent off in July (I'm a little bit early!) and start getting some back from who knows who from who knows where!

  3. These are so great! That one of the trousers, with the two dogs on the right is my favorite. I love the unique perspective that you created. You're so talented!

  4. Thank you Craftattack.

    Natasha I'll look forward to seeing your beautiful artwork on postcards soon!

    Katherine thanks so much - the one you mentioned is actually taken from my favourite hill walking photos of me and our dogs so I can't claim the credit for the perspective unfortunately but I'm glad you like it!
