Earlier this year I received a box of around 50 postcards, all of different Pantone colors, from a good friend of mine.
Without much thought I realized these cards lend themselves to having collages created on these colorful backgrounds. So without any planning I went to work using up scraps and little paper bits to create some collage art.
I started with using no more than 3 pieces per collage, like I did with this blue one.
I’m not sure what to do with the cards once I’m done. The initial plan was to mail them off to mail-art friends. Now that I’ve got a collection of them I’m reluctant to break them up. I could punch a hole in the corner and put them on a ring, or put them all in an album. But wait a minute… . Why are people like that? Why do we want to collect things and hold on to them?
No, I’ve got enough things that I’m holding on to. I’m going to be firm and mail these off. I can keep the pictures though.
