Liberate Your Art Postcard Swap

Some of you might have seen it in blogland, the Liberate Your Art postcard swap by Kat at The Kat Eye View of the World. All the participants sent five postcards of their art to Kat who then swapped them and send five different cards back. She also topped it off with a card of her own fantastic photography, so we actually got six postcards each. If you have never visited Kat's blog and you like photography you should definitely hop over to her blog!

These are the beautiful cards I received:

Don't you just love all these fabulous cards? I so enjoyed receiving them over the weeks.

When I saw this postcard in my mailbox I immediately knew that it had to be from Kat - and it was. It very well represents her beautiful style:


The only annoying thing is the white strip by USPS that was glued to some of these cards!

And here are the five cards that I sent to Kat and that were sent out to five other participants. Some of you might recognize a few images...


It was a very fun swap that I'm sure was lots of work for Kat - especially since during that time she relocated to the States after having lived in Italy for two years.

You did a wonderful job, Kat - thank you so very much!

What a beautiful collection of cards! This was a fun project and I can't wait for the next time - I've learned a little bit about how to make a better postcard so think my next effort will be even better!

Wasn't it great? I'm really enjoying the blog hop too. That photo of the tulips is amazing (they are my fave flowers anyway).

Carola, love the top 3 cards you sent out; especially that songbird one. I hope you will put pieces like that up at your etsy. Loved the Indian girl you posted for sale (perfect size & price as well) but she doesn't work with my livingroom decor ;).
