Here are a few more postcards I made this last summer. The first one was made from a 78 record cover:
I’ve seen other people use old stamps on photos of other people. So I combined stamp faces with an old pattern envelope. I had lots of fun with this one, and now I’m collecting face stamps for future variations!
I combined pieces from two magazines for this one. I’m not sure why Elsie was asking questions about husbands, but that line really was part of the Borden ad.
Here’s one I’m particularly pleased with. I added a couple of “stamps” that weren’t originally on the packages, as well as the other oddities.
And one more, which started out as an ad for State Farm Insurance. I got to use up some of my sticker collection for this one.
It’s hard to find the time to spread out all my collections of papers and play like this, but I find it satisfying, and I enjoy sending them out randomly to other “mail artists.” I hope you enjoy seeing them, too!
