Post Card Swap

Carol Graham / Tangled Inklings
Dawn Diamantopoulos is a mixed media artist, who hosted a Post Card Swap on Google+.  It sounded like fun so I signed up.  There weren't a lot of rules, it just had to be an original piece, handmade by you, in your choice of medium.  I glued a page from an old book, with the chapter title "Something a Little Unusual", onto cardstock and covered it lightly with gesso.  Then added Tangles with a Pigma Micron 01 pen, and shaded with graphite pencil.  I found an old vintage postcard in with my Dad's stuff, and copied the lettering from the back side.  I finished my postcard and will pop it in the mail later today.  The artist I am to send this to lives in the US, so I need to pick up some International postage.  Thought I'd better post the photos before I put the artist's mailing information on it. I think I will send it in an envelope, just so it doesn't get mucked up.

Thanks Dawn, for doing this - I can't wait to see what sort of art I get!

I finally received my postcard in the mail.  The artist's name is Clinton Mason from Indiana.  There were no links to websites or blogs to see his work, and I didn't find him on Google+, but here is his piece:

UPDATE
 Dawn has posted all of the postcards in three posts over on her blog. Follow the links to check them out:

I'm a Winner!

I got the z e n t a n g l e ® blog today, and was tickled to see that my name had been drawn to receive one of Maria or Rick's tiles!  They often do random draws from the folks who leave comments on the blog, and this time - they picked me.  I had left this comment on the last blog entry:
"Maybe when we learn small things,
taught with great love
we can accomplish great things
Thanks Maria & Rick for your inspirational teaching!"

In response to Maria's post about this quote, from Mother Teresa

UPDATE - Here is the tile I received from Maria . . .
