Postcards~ Two for One But Not Very Practical


I've been packing up some of my tools and supplies for the trip north but always need to leave and outlet for some creativity if the mood strikes.
I've been meaning to make up some postcards for mail art but I got a little carried away and decorated both sides making it a little difficult for any messages or addresses.
The good news is they can be flipped according to mood~
not very practical I know!

  5. These are very fun rocket Kim. I always feel like I've gone back in time with your collage, you have a great sense of 50's/60's vintage in your work. I am always smiling as I view you collage. xox Corrine

  6. Wow, i've just caught up with 4 posts, where have I been?! (& the timer's gone off already...yeah, i need a timer ;( )

    Love the 'decoupage' & your headpins did you call them? earings. So that's what those delicious little bundles were for, as you say you could twist them round almost anything. Fabulous, all of it!
