Time to play with collage and paint for Altered Postcards

I have been participating in the 31 Day Challenge for 24 days now.  I must say, I'm completely exhausted.  I knew that cleaning and organizing my art room was going to be a huge challenge, yet I underestimated how tiring it would be.  Both mentally and physically.

I have been doing well, once my stamp shelves go up I can say I'm almost done.  I did do a little organizing today but I felt I needed a break, and did some art.  One of my great friends, Dede inspired me to just sit down and play.  I took a sheet of 12x12 cardstock and went to town, getting my anxieties down on paper.  I cut the cardstock into six 4x6 postcards that are now ready to alter and send to friends.

I chose the colours and papers based on the journal page I worked on during my Saturday show on Ustream.

I will be back soon with more art and art room update pictures!
