dc postage stamps

Hello friends and stamp lovers,

dear Helen came up with this weeks theme STAMPS so I pulled out my collection of stamps, stamps of animals, mushrooms and space travel - all themes and designs I like. I bought them 2 years ago because I thought its a nice stuff for collages and the stamp collection of my childhood all were thrown away over the years and moves. :(
A special delight for me are those old postcards from my family, the first is from 1922, the green one from 1941! - who would have expectes that they wrote postcards during 2nd world war?! But they did.




And here are a few examples where the stamps eventually land.

tolle Sammlung, ich mag Deine Collagen übrigens auch sehr, die machen richtig gute Laune!
Ich habe ja ebenfalls so alte Postkarten aus meiner Familie, auf einer ist sogar eine Bombendetonation abgebildet.

Barbara, I have been enjoying your daily artworks. Just enjoying them so much. Now that I see your selection of postage stamps which are a part of your arsenal I enjoy your collages even more. Oh those mushroom stamps. Hello! They speak to me loudly. Well I do appreciate the art form of stamps more than ever, now that I have journeyed in stamp world, thanks to Helen. And thanks to you for making such delicious eye candy collages. You do awesome work. *smiles* Norma, x

Wow those postcards are wonderful and so precious Barb. I know why they have survived when I had to evacuate my house in a hurry recently due to bushfires I had about 5 minutes to think what I could bear living with or without I took foto and family teddybears. Nothing if money value I would have taken these postcards Barb too precious to lose.

PS: the stamps and their final placing are really beautiful. I live what you do with stamps.

The family postcards are delightful for sure, Barbara! A wonderful treasure. I didn't realize postcards were sent during that war either. Have a good week. xo

lovely collection Barbara, you make very good use of them in your collages, they add that fun touch, the shark/mushroom combination made me smile at first glance and it still does.
for us it's hard to imagine that post was the only way to communicate, we wait on a phone call or an e-mail nowadays, those old post cards are something to treasure, xx

Love what you are doing with the stamps...
I have some at my parents...my dad collects, and it was a time I collect too...now are a bit forgotten...should think about making something...

Kristen Donegan hat gesagt…

OK I can't believe there are that many stamps out there with mushrooms on them ! how awesome is that!
Your work lends itself to stamps as I've always seen your smaller pieces to be a way of communicating lots of ideas...and what better way to send them out into the world!
I am especially loving the third one with the whale shark- I think it needs a sound track :)

tanïa hat gesagt…

Wow, nicht nur Deine Briefmarkensammlung ist so toll, dass ich Dir gern die ein oder andere Marke abluchsen würde, nein, auch Deine Collagen sind wunderbar! Ich kann gar nicht sagen, welche ich am besten finde, weil mir wirklich alle supergut gefallen!

Hello BarbaraBee, I found your 365 blog through one of the DC participants. I adore your use of stamps and the owl collage with the cat stamp makes me smile! Sometimes blogging can feel lonely as you don't know if anyone is looking; so happy to have found your blog(s).
