Handmade Postcard Collage









These are four parts of a collage that I made in 8th grade at school. Now, many years later, I ave turned the negative experience I had back then into a positive one by sending these pieces (slightly altered) off to others as mailart.

I think we tried to do these collages in the style of Giuseppe Arcimboldo's pictures.
One part was the face of my collage, the others were hair (the two with lots of stamps) and one was the shoulder (with the books).

Thanks, Joannie.
It's not that hard to make these cards. Some of them take only 20 minutes or less to make! You should give it a try.

How creative! It takes me a whole day to make a card because I keep changing my mind and fussing with it. Plus waiting for the glue to dry. I try to make them sturdy enough to survive the mail.
