The Postcard Project

Last week I worked on a Postcard Project for Jane Davies to save her little country Post office. Read her post here and feel free to participate. I first collaged and painted a 22 x 30 piece of American Masters printmaking paper (from Utrecht). Then I framed the area that I wanted for this particular postcard, cut it out, added more paint and collage on top, then brushed a tinted glaze over it to bring it all together (a trick I learned from painter Don Tiller). I got 14 postcards out of that piece of paper and will be showing you how they turn out as I finish them.

Step 1- Collage

Step 2- Paint

Step 3- Crop
Step 4- Cut

Step 5- Add more paint and collage elements and final glazing


  1. What a great way to create many postcards at one. Really beautiful Lucie!

  2. This is great Lucie! I love that you showed the process and explained how you created this step-by-step. I have so much to learn from you! Can't wait to see the rest of the collection.
