galaxy postcards DIY

galaxy postcards
I've got another mail related post for you today! I am fascinated by galaxies (and anything having to do with space, really), and I think they are really fun to paint. I created these galaxy postcards after I was inspired by Elisa's galaxy notebook!

Elisa has great instructions for making a galaxy pattern, so check out her tutorial!

To make these postcards, I cut out a postcard sized rectangle from watercolor paper (because it's stiffer than card stock). Then I applied different shades of blue and purple with a sponge, and added some white "stars" with a small paintbrush. I modpodged the top and drew a postcard design on the back with a black pen.

On the bottom, I wrote a line from one of my favorite poems by Andrea Gibson.

I hope everyone is having a lovely weekend!
