Liberate Your Art

Blog Hop 
postcard swap
Hosted by
Kat Sloma
Friday, August 26th - Sunday, August 28th
What a wonderful job, Kat has done, coordinating 
this fantastic postcard swap.
The goal was to reach 200 participants...
and it was surpassed by over
254 artists
signed up for the swap!
dedicated to all the talented artists
who took part in 
Liberate Your Art
postcard swap

Let me give you the break down of the swap:
* each artist was to print their postcards *
(from original artwork)

Altered Book 
art project

 I decided to have printed onto 
41/2 x 6 1/2 
postcard size prints.
These printed postcards were delivered by a due date.
In return, I received some pretty, incredible postcards
 created by
other fantastic, creative, people!
Inspiring... right?
I thought so!

Let me share with you what wonderful
"mail art"
I received by joining in on the fun...

We got to ride our one of Washington's newest
ferry boats, just recently built.

And... away we went!
Clear skies and blue sea, what a beautiful day.

Port Townsend, WA.
Such a beautiful old town.

hand-made paper!

Stopped by the for a milk-shake...

Look at these purses!
I could see myself will one on these...
very "artsy".

I thought these two sculptures were 
interesting, creative, and adorable.

Love all these old buildings.

Spent a wonderful day at 

Happy Thursday!
