These cards are on their way to my Pals Poist postcard partners. One is headed to Ireland, one to Norway and one to California. I meant to add a flower to the middle card. But dork forgot until just as I was putting it in the envelope. Three layers of paint and then the pen work, and do you think I would remember??
Pals Poist is Jacinta Moore‘s idea for a postcard exchange. In an attempt to fill the huge gap left by the cancelation of Kat Sloma’s LYA. Jacinta even created a cool little logo for the event. Check it out!
I have already received Jacinta’s wonderful card. She calls it digital art. It is a compilation.
Isn’t that a mind bender? Or is it just my mind that is bent? This is a photo of her photo. Not doing it justice. I apologize Jacinta. So glad you had the idea to do a swap!
Here are more of the gesso prepped postcards. I received a newsletter from the Desert Botanical gardens in Phoenix, and it put me in the mood to paint cacti. Warm thoughts on a chilly day. Mingus saw rain a few times. We had minuscule hail for about two minutes. :o/ Fingers crossed for rain showers tomorrow.
I just love the way paint puddles and highlights the texture of the gesso. I have inspirational stickers I am thinking of adding to these. Mmm… maybe I will add them to the back instead. Ha ha ha. Five more started last night. Hope you are enjoying some creative time as well!
Why is it so easy for me to forget how fun it is to use watercolor with gesso? Messy, uncontrollable… fun! I have about 18 of these started, making ready for two different swaps. The Global heART Exchange, and Pals Poist, with Jacinta Moore. Maybe I will see you there.
Pals Poist was created by Jacinta. If you are interested, check her out on Instagram. Each artist connects with individuals they would like to swap with. The swap begins in March. There is no theme, and you can choose how many you would like to swap with. If you are not on Instagram, but want to swap, let me know in a comment.
