"Whimsical" Sunday Postcard Art


"I like that 'once upon a time' quality, where the telling of a tale has an elevated sense of story. 
There's a whimsical quality to it. Sometimes in fairy tales more things seem possible, 
even though often they're real world based."
- Erin Morgenstern


Helllloooo & Happy Sunday Postcard Art!

I'm tickled to host this week, and have chosen the theme of "Whimsical." 

I recently found an old medicine bag in my stash of emphermia, and couldn't wait to play with it. It serves as the base for this little girl - half sketch and half B&W photocopy - as she trips along the the word Tranquilizer, made prettier with the addition of some neon pink. . .

To see the whole thing come together, check out the process video on my YouTube channel:


Wanna join us? Please do so! Create anything at all, just as long it's the size of a postcard and follows this week's theme. You can link your "Whimisical" postcards through the end of the week at Sunday Postcard Art. 

I can't wait to see what you do!

With Love,
Kristin xo
