I love decorating the back of postcards! Most of the time I really don’t have anything of ‘interest’ to write so I pick my favorite thoughts and quotes that express my opinion and mood. If it’s a travel card I’ll provide a fun experience about it. Sometimes the back of the card has no useful info about the picture. So I cover it in scrapbook paper, and I add washi tape, stickers, and stamps. I’ll also use the ink pad to stamp the rim in various colors to look vintage or worn. I’ll also use a paper punch to round the edges of the card or what I have glued to the back of the card. It’s basically a form of junk journaling I think but not using 3D objects like you would in an actual scrapbook or junk journal.


Welcome to the forum! What beautiful examples!

:wave: Hello. If I may ask, what glue do all of you use that sticks well but won’t affect the other side of the card?

Please check the following thread about glue

I like your drawing, but you should (at least) cover the recipient´s address.

I have started to paint little gouache paintings of the plants you would find in the nation parks featured in the national parks box set.

This one is a prickly pear cactus :cactus: found in zion national park, Utah.


I found more heads in need of bodies.
