Mail art postcards 650 411 Consie Sindet

Tuesday, April 1st was my birthday! It was a fabulous day made even better by the fact that I moved into the new studio that I will share with my friend, Kristine! I wanted to celebrate with all of you and thought it might be a nice idea to share a little mail art with some of my readers.

Mail art postcards using watercolor and doodling • AtopSerenityHill.comUsing an old toothbrush and some white and black FolkArt acrylic paint, I flyspecked onto the watercolor background, dragging the toothbrush once in a while to create more texture.

The first 12 readers that send me their address by clicking here (giveaway is now over), will receive one of the postcards in the mail…a little mail art to celebrate my birthday! International addresses are just fine!

Update: Thank you so much to those that sent me their addresses! Your mail art is on the way!

Thank you so much for being a part of my blog world and for sharing in my day!

I link up at these great parties!

    Hi Consie! Happy Birthday! These postcards are so beautiful! I’ve just recently discovered your site, only in the last few weeks, and I’m so glad I did. Your watercolor work is just gorgeous. It’s just so happy! What caught my eye originally was your bookmarks. I’ve learned a lot about watercolor and pens by reading your posts, and now I’ve been inspired to try to make my own! Thank you so much for sharing your talent!

    I was giddy to see your mail art postcards! I am such a paper junkie and love letter writing that I just had to stop by for a closer look (via SITS Saturday Sharefest). So glad I did. I just pinned you beautiful work and signed up with my address. I do hope you had a fabulous Birthday!

    These are lovely! The doodles are like zentangle – I’m starting to try my hand at that. 🙂

    I’m hosting a series right now all about yarn projects. I’d love to have you link up anything you’ve made involving yarn/twine!
