I’ll see you next year! Have a happy holiday season…be back after the new year.

I found three Christmas cards in my collection of old post cards.  This antique post card doesn’t have a date on the back…it has written in a corner:”to Uncle Marian from Emma.”   The photo doesn’t do it justice, the flower has a velvet texture.


This next card dates back to 1910…one cent to mail it…here’s front and back:


This is a small flip card from some time past…I really do not know about its age:

    Such beautiful writing and it seems then also people had to hurry or it seems that way from the writing, to hurry and write in such an interesting way. Love those cards now I have to go find mine.
    Wishing you a meaningful time with this season of Christmas.

    I have some similar postcards sent home by my grandfather. Process for the sketch piece; add some impasto medium or similar to acrylic, roll with brayer. Roll brayer quite hard across a printing block, roll onto paper lightly. Monoprint from the surface on which paint was rolled out, onto tissue paper. Let tissue dry. Spray with mount spray and attach to work. Add fabcric. Hope that is reasonably clear.Best wishes for 2012. Jackie.
