liberate your art 2014

postcards and art envelope by Juana & ready to send to Kat


I joined this postcard mail swap for the second time this year. Above are the set that I sent out this year along with the art envelope that I made to enclose them.


I thank Kat over at kateyestudio for putting together this wonderful mail art exchange.  It's a big job indeed as she receives all our postcards and mails them out in bunches. How many? 1254 pieces of art with 209 participating artists from 10 countries. Wow!


Below is what I received this year.

Wasn't this fun? 2014 was my second year and it was just as much fun as last year. so many lovely postcards and making new friends, too! Love how you've photographed your cards. Looking forward to next year!

Juana, do you still have the sumi ink video up? I can't seem to find it and I would love to see it, because I work with a group of teens who are having a Sakura Festival and they are having a booth for "character painting" using Katakana and Hiragana. Would love to share your sumi ink works.
Aloha

Lovely Cards! I like how you photographed them in their NEW home. Kinda interesting to think about how they've traveled from afar with a life of their own ...--Michele at Sweet Leaf
