I've been playing with paint (the real stuff) for the last few days as I need to make some mixed media postcards for a Postcard Swap that I have signed up for.
Although I don't have too many painterly skills to boast of, I have lots of fun slapping watercolours, acrylics and inks across a page to make a colourful mess.
Best of all, I know that I can scan said "mess" and create lots of other goodness from my paper based fiddles and leverage them in many ways in Photoshop. I can also alter the large scanned images endlessly, make new art, create brushes, play with text and well .... you get the idea.
If you are interested in Postcard swapping the sign-ups are open until January 20th! It's an International Swap so you might get some cool art from some far flung places and the stamps alone will be fun to see.
