Mixed Media Postcards (pic heavy)

I’ve been doing the Watch.Learn.Play. preview this week and we’ve been making lots of mixed media backgrounds using prompts and making them into postcards.

Here’s a group shot of several of them together

I’ve already mailed the group above but here are a few scans of a few others

And some scans of the backgrounds before being cut up and turned into postcards

I’ve been having so much fun making postcards this week, thanks for looking!

I love the vibrant colors you used and they have a pleasing composition. I think my favorite is the one with the three large vertical pink circles. I’m envisioning these much much larger-- a huge canvas!

These are so, so beautiful.

What size are the backgrounds?

9x12”, then cut down to 4.5x6” for postcards.

Yes! I’ve been trying to think of where I could put a canvas to work on, I think it would be fun to work on a large piece.

These are so fantastic! What a great idea to turn them into postcards.

And I concur - I’d love to see you do a larger piece one day!

these are all fantastic. yours came out much brighter than mine. Maybe I need more tubes of paint!

I esp like the next to bottom one with those moody circles.

I mean, we always need more tubes of paint :). I did scan mine which I think helps them look brighter because it removes all of the shadows.

absolutely love! the colors are so great!

I highly recommend it! The preview was only $5 and you get access to the content until mid-September. And if you watch the kickoff call you can listen to me (I was a participant, not leading anything) go on about how much I love using the mixed media prompts and Watch.Learn.Play. in general :slight_smile:
