April post cards

I've been delighted to receive some really nice post cards lately but have been tied up working on and about the Spring Art Show in Lodi, the Tracy Grand Theater Art Show "Expressions! Selections" a show of 25 pieces of art by 20 invited artists, and getting ready for the Lathrop Mayors Art Show.

And keeping up with my beautiful garden by showing it off to a few friends at a little garden party on a rare perfect weather day.

  The Irish Spring card was accidentally  blown off the patio table, and fell into a potted geranium.     It has been watered a couple of times!   LOL  Whatever glue Beth Kelsey used, it works well because it is still intact, although a bit warped.

 The rabbit card is from Jennie Hichcliff. 

Reduce Waste card is from Linda Giese.   Some of these are follow ups to my mailing post cards promoting Artists for a Greener Planet. 

 The one with the can of veggies is from Punwit, a starter to which I added the bird head and the text and the man on lower right.  Now it goes back to him to see what he will do next.    I really look forward to these.   

America is from long time art friend, Joanna Taylor, who had just returned from a trip to Yosemite where a book she had done was being shown with her delightful hand carved stamped images.  

 The bright yellow card was  made with a onion bag by Norma Soulet of Florida, between tennis games.     Isn't this a clever use of a recycled piece of plastic that otherwise would have gone into the trash?  

Thanks for the cards, friends.   I've sent off a series this  month, but forgot to take pics.  I used pre printed post cards I purchased to get the box they came in.    So I collaged over the backs of them,  attached the mail labels onto the printed image and the stamp, and sent them off.     I'm hoping the gals that receive them will enjoy the latest mail art.

  1. HAHAHAHAH Good old Gel Medium saves the day! and there might be some Collage Pauge on there as well. I hope you can still smell the Irish Spring soap, but if they were scented geraniums, maybe it smells better LOL Thanks for giving me a good laugh today, Beth
