Mixed Media Postcards by Mary C. Nasser

Hi, everyone! Mary C. Nasser here! I am so honored and excited that Rae Missigman asked me to be one of twelve Creative Contributors for The Painted Paper Project, a free online course she created with Sandi Keene. The Painted Paper Project is dedicated to spreading joy through art! It is a project that promotes kindness and gratitude. The idea is that you make a project and either mail it or hand-deliver it. I love both happy mail and practicing gratitude!

I hope you enjoy my Mixed Media Postcards project and make your own Mixed Media Postcards, too!
Have fun and happy creating!
