Altered postcards

The seaside comes to the park in my home town, Richmond, Yorks
It's postcard swap weekend no. 5 and some of us are having terrible problems with Blogger, locked into our own blogs like princesses in towers, and unable to post on Postman's Knock. That gives me an excuse to re-show the card I made for Jane, and also to show the four other cards I made afterwards along the same lines.
Some sort of madness gripped me. I was seeing seaside scenes on mountain tops and in grim shopping centres.
You can see some of the same figures recur. I don't think I've quite worked these out of my system yet, as I have a slightly different take on this theme to try, but I'm such a terrible dabbler that my skittish mind is on something else just now.

Fabulous fun!

They're brilliant! I can see why they'd be amusingly addictive.

Jane, these are wonderfully inventive. I have no idea how you've done them. If they are 'photoshopped' in any way I certainly didn't cover that on my course! Just love the thinking behind it allmarvelling at your creative energy. Lesley

An absolute hoot! Love your sense of humour.

They're brilliant - if only Queensway in Birmingham really looked like that!
