Liberate Your Art Postcard Swap

Over the summer my friend Kat from The Kat Eye View was putting together something called Liberate Your Art a postcard swap. We each mailed her 5 postcards of our art and she divvied them up and we each got 5 back in return. Well 6 really because she sent out one of her own. 

And she did all this just after moving back to the US from Italy.

1020 pieces of art
170 participants
37 US states
13 countries
2 homes
1 swap

It was so much fun to get something in the mail other then bills or junk.


The one on the left came from Rosie @ Rosie’s World. Her pink tulips are just so gorgeous. 
They certainly brightened my day. I would love to have some growing in my yard.

On the right is one from Kelly @ I Need To Color. It is titled “Mackenzie’s Flowers”. 
I’m not sure how she did it but the colors are just so pretty. 
Delicate little flowers with punches of color.


The picture of the sweet older couple was taken in Krakow Poland by Alison of My Life-An Adventure. Such soft and lovely colors. The light fog gives it a mysterious feel. 
I love how they are walking arm in arm.

On the right is a pen and watercolor done by Lea. She is at The Beaufort Art Center. It's a great combination of the two mediums. Such detail in the pen and beautiful colors with the paint. 
She must have quite the steady hand.

The YES is an original piece of art created by Tia who blogs @ The Inspired Life
This was her first piece big piece that she sold and it launch her YES project.  
It’s a wonderful piece full of inspiring words. 
She’s wanting to spread the word about saying yes to the things that you desire.

And last is my card from Kat herself!

It’s the wonderful photo of a Vespa that she took in Italy. I have always loved this shot. 
Vespas are seen all over Italy. I’ve never driven one but maybe some day. 
It’s also a great reminder of the wonderful trip we made for our huge family reunion. 
And I love the red!

I hope everyone got my emails but let me just say thanks again just in case. :)

And a huge THANKS to Kat for doing all this work. What a fantastic job you did!

I hope she does it again next year.
Think you’ll join us?

Its just such a reflection of where they came from. Love your other cards as well and, may I say, since we were connected through Kat, I am an avid "Going A Little Coastal" fan!
