Liberate Your Art 2015

http://kateyestudio.com/2015/04/liberate-your-art-2015-blog-hop.html
I participated in this postcard swap for the first time this year.  I want to get my "art" out there in the big wide world this year, so I felt this was a good start ! I ordered  postcards of some of my photos from Moo.com and was really pleased with the quality of them.  Then I sent the 5 cards, self addressed labels and stamps to Kat Sloma, who organizes the swap.  It was wonderful when postcards started to arrive in my mailbox ! I have discovered that only two of my cards were received so far via the Facebook page, one of which landed in Alaska ! 

Here are the cards I sent out :




These are the cards I received, all from the USA except one which came all the way from Australia !

This first one was from JarieLyn  and she wrote the poem as well as drawing the image !

 This one was from Julia in the Seattle area who is a mixed media and altered artist. She tries to complete a creative project every day !


 This was from Wendy in the Rio Grande Valley who said "Do what you love !"


 This scene of San Francisco was sent by Dee who wrote a quote on the back of the postcard....Creativity is allowing yourself to make mistakes. Art is knowing which ones to keep. ~ Scott Adams



This was from Charm who lives in Western Australia. The flower is from a flowering gumtree. 



Last but not least was a card from Kat herself called Imminent Downfall !


All in all , this was a lot of fun. Thanks to Kat and her helpers for making it happen !  Here is a video of some of the art that was sent in for the swap. 



For the life of me I couldn't figure out how to add the link up to the blog hop....apologies !

  4. Such a nice change from just posting images online...to actually printing your art, and receiving art from others! A big undertaking by Kat (kudos to her)! I love the shot of the San Francisco scene.
