Collage Mail Art
This week I did a postcard swap with an art therapist that lives up north. I'm wondering what she thinks of my rather dark collage. I didn't "feel" dark when making it, I think it just came about that way after painting the background.
I liked the Mona Lisa in sunglasses that I found in a magazine and the rest just sort of morphed together from there.
The back side has absolutely nothing to do with the front. Except for the words "This Place is Amazing" - because if you've had the pleasure of visiting the Louvre, you'd have to agree, lol!
The paint from the front got on the back along the edges and I thought a graffiti type look was the way to go. I didn't work too hard at this, but then I never work too hard at any of my art. It just isn't fun then.
I definitely had fun putting this together and hope to find more postcard artists to exchange with.
