Mail art~August

My friend Amanda arranged an exchange of art postcards every month. So each month, you have a friend you're assigned to make a postcard for and you send it to them on the first of the month, and another friend sends you one.

This was the first month, and this is the one I sent to Amanda:

This is going to be a bit tough for me, because I don't have a lot of art skills when it comes to stuff like this, but I'm looking forward to trying something each month and *hopefully!* improving. :/

This was just pencil and I titled it "In Honor Of" because it's her initials. Titling? Also something I'm not real great at. :p I have no idea what I'm going to title the next one I have in mind.

Oh, and I got postcard stamps at the post office a couple weeks ago....they have polar bears on them, how cute! Seems like a good reason to send postcards. :D

Thanks for the postcard! I like it, and I enjoyed the title! Even though you SAY you do not have any artistic skills, you seem to have taken enough effort and time in many of the details that it all really works together. It almost makes me laugh with the little construction guys doing such a big job!

Thanks! :)

Well, I'm glad you like it, Amanda. :)

Yeah, they are kinda tiny compared to the letters! :D
