The Great Creative Postcard Exchange - Postcards!
In March I started the Great Creative Postcard Exchange, putting a call out for anyone who would like to make an original creative postcard and send it to someone they've never met and receive one in return. I had over forty people across the creative spectrum, from professional full-time artists to "I'm not an artist but I want to make something". It was great to see people jump in from all over New Brunswick, even all the way to British Columbia! Everyone seemed to really enjoy both the making and receiving of postcards.
I even got to make one myself and I had a lot of fun with it! See at the bottom ;)
I thought I'd share a few of my favourites from the first round. From colours to textures to materials, the postcards were as varied and creative as the people who participated!
