Postcards again…

I have finally made it back.  Due to family obligations, etc., I have been unable to do any art for almost two weeks…except for yesterday.  I signed up to take part in Danielle’s post card swap and forgot about it.  But I did manage to get my cards finished before the deadline on Monday.  Danielle’s blog is: A Love Affair with Paper.  I decided to mix it a bit from my usual collaged postcards. 

This first card was completely doodled or zentangled with a Sharpie Pen.

This card started with an old map and book as a base and some painted papers collaged over it.

This card is a printer copy of a black and white doodle I did about a year ago or more. The printer ink didn’t print out as black so I just went with it. I re-doodled over it with my Sharpie Pen.  I like how it turned out.

For this last card, I used painted papers mixed with strip of black and white doodles.
