Liberate your Art - postcard swap

one of my journal girls
One of the projects I've recently taken part in....
is Kat's
postcard swap.
 The swap involves sending 5 postcards with prints of your art work to Kat , then Kat sorts through the bundles of postcards that she receives and posts 5 random postcards back to you together with one of her own lovely art cards. 
With 193 particpants Kat did an awesome job!

This is the first time I have liberated my artwork into the was slightly nervous!!!
 I decided to get some postcard prints made of some of my journal these are what I sent off to Kat...
I know that one of my cards landed in San Diego, CA. and another one flew to Germany.....Mmmm just wondering where the others ended up???
Did you get one?!! ;)
....and these are the beauties I received in return....

It was fabulous swap!
Fun waiting for postcards to drop through the letterbox :)
Thanks so much to Kat for the incredible job you did in organizing this exchange.
...and to all the lovely participants, it's been fun following and seeing all the wonderful variety of postcards being posted on FACEBOOK.
I'm so glad I participated, and looking forward to taking part again next year.

Thanks for peeking!

  15. They're all wonderful - and look, you got one of Valerie's! I hope you get to hear where all your beautiful girls ended up. When I did the various swaps organised by Art House Co-op I never heard from any of my recipients :(


  16. The girls you sent out were all gorgeous. Glad my card with the old cart got to you safely. I am so cross with the people who are just letting it rot, and I feel sad every time I pass it by on our street! Valerie

  17. I'm so glad to see you received one of my cards. What a lovely way to feature each card! And I hope you are following your dreams.

  18. Wow Jan, your girls look beautiful as postcards. Still want to do this but not right now.....maybe in the New Year.
