I've been busy playing with all of my new ephemera from the Allentown Paper Show
, and have created some more postcards for my mail art friends.
The ephemera from the State Hospital in Utica, New York--mainly receipts--make fantastic postcard backgrounds. On several of the cards, I added decorative tapes, as well as the matchbox stickers I bought recently at the Omoi Zakka Shop
here in Philadelphia.
The tan and red decorative tapes you see on these cards came from the zakka shop, as well--I love them!
And, look--there's a lire glued right onto the postcard above! I've started using the vintage currency
from the auction.
I also used many of the old airmail envelopes from the paper show as background elements for the postcards. My Cavallini postal-themed rubber stamps and my hand-carved stamps made appearances, too!
And the red labels are Martha Steward brand with Avery, which I purchased at Staples. They're pretty awesome!
All of these wonderful collage elements came together in these postcards, and it gave me great pleasure to create them. I have a feeling that many more postcards with a similar "feel" are waiting in the creative wings!
And now, without further ado, I will announce the winner of my Paper Loot Giveaway! I determined the winner the old-fashioned way: I wrote every entrant's name on a slip of paper, and then drew one from a bowl. I know for sure that this particular person was meant
to be the winner because I drew her name from the bowl, then realized that one person's name had fallen out before the drawing. So I put the slips of paper back in, swished them around thoroughly with my hand, and drew again. And it was the same
person! So congratulations to Tina/ZooGardener36
. I drew your name twice, so I guess you were really meant to have all of this fun paper loot!
Many thanks to the over-30 people who entered this, my biggest giveaway to date. It was very fun for me to see how many people share my love for paper ephemera.
I am taking a brief week-long blogging break to spend Internet-free time with my family. I will be back next week! I hope you will re-join me then.
Thanks so much Andria! I love your postcards and can't wait to start making some of my own creations with the loot! I'm thrilled!
Congrats to Tina! She's getting some great "stuff"!!!!
