If you have never participated in a postcard swap (or any swap) before, I would encourage you to to find a group and try one out. This will be my third time participating and I have received almost all cards from those committing to the events. The swaps not only get me motivated to experiment and play (which are my two favorite aspects of creativity), but I also receive delightful handmade items in the mail. This particular group that I participate with includes individuals from around the globe.
For this swap, I decided to slightly alter some test prints and cast-offs from a past series of mine, Insentient Portrait Series, 2011 (this series can be viewed on my previous blog post). I have a couple of definite favorites and I certainly hope that the recipients of the cards are pleased. Some cards have more work on them, whereas the others I felt “less is more”.
I’d also like to share what my “workspace” looks like from time to time. It is temporary and ever-moving about the house. My family is very patient with me when I set it up. (Forgive the blank walls. We renovated this past summer and I just haven’t figured our arrangement quite yet.)

I used some of my outcast/discarded cyanotype prints as the main material. Postcard swap hosted by: http://www.musingsonrealities.blogspot.ca/
