Postcard Swap Hurray!

Here are the 5 postcards I have made for iHanna’s Autumn Post Card Swap.

I am supporting my son and daughter-in-law with their new twins so I had just one day to make the cards – I up-cycled some old acrylic paintings, tearing some and using them as collage pieces, bubble wrap printing, washi tape and a bit of doodling. I keep a book of sayings and aphorisms – a brief riffle through to come across some Empowering Sayings.

My granddaughter also wants to join in.
