December Postcard RR



December Postcard RR

As you know by now I have participated in many round robins.  Now I am in a postcard RR called the Muse Mail.  There are eleven of us in this group many of whom were in a previous envelope RR. I particularly like postcard exchanges and normally prefer the postcard to be mailed as a normal postcard and not in an envelope.  However, this time I came up with a folded postcard, my design, that needs to be mailed in a clear envelope.

The reason I personally like the postcards to be mailed normally is because I like the cancellation marks on the postcard after the artist has completed his/her work.  It just adds something to snail mail treat.  With that said, I did something totally against my above statements.  This time I made a postcard that is sewn into a pocket after some gelli plate and collagraph work.  I then created a circular collage to fit in the pocket.

The back of the collage looks like this:



I found this 30 kmph sign in an antique store and had my friend Michele take a photo of it with her phone camera.  Thanks, Michele.  The image can be seen in the first photo above as well.
