Friends & Faux – beginnings

As the Going Postal project draws to a close (end August),
the
Friends and Faux project is still barely in its infancy!  For this project, I am sending out postcards, stamped by the Local Post of Tangledom, and asking recipients to add their own faux postage stamp to the cad – then pass it on.  There is space on each postcard for 8 artistamps, which once full – I hope! – will return home to me, so I can document their journey.  Anyone who adds an artistamp to one of the (numbered) project postcards and sends a scan/photo to me of their contribution before mailing it onward will receive a free copy of…whatever zine emerges, once the project ends…!

So far, only 34 numbered Friends & Faux postcards are ‘out there’ in the world!  I have been logging their journeys here.  But I will be sending out a new batch soon.  Would you like to take part?  Just drop me a line with your name and postal address and a new postcard will be logged to meander in your direction.  Have you requested a postcard previously and not received it?  Please get in touch again & I will send you a new postcard.

Friends and Faux Postcard #1 (shown below) is the best-travelled so far, having reached (and been despatched from?) it’s 4th destination.  Sadly, I have lost the scan I was sent by recipient #2, but here is how it looked after its first stop:

Can’t wait to see how different it looks if/when it makes it home!

And here are a couple more postcards-in-progress, currently wending their way around the world…  As you can see, anything goes, in terms of style & embellishment.  For the sake of uniformity, I used the same TangleStamp to start each card (although I might now begin varying which I use), but the postmark design already shows 2 variations, and the next batch will show my most recent acquisition/variation.  But just a note, you do not have to have your own postcard stamp to play this game!  It’s all about the artistamps:
