I joined a swap to do some postage people ATC's, which are all the rage right now. Basically, you find a postage stamp with a person or animal head and then find a body image to match and make them into an ATC.
Sounds easy, right? Well, it's much harder than it looks. Dymphie suggested that we find a body that is facing the proper direction and then color on the stamp to help blend the head into the body. That helped a lot.
I was lucky enough that I had a stamp that would match thes Paul Revere stamps. I hope none of the "Daughters of the American Revolution" members or some other heritage group get mad at me for dressing him in "drag", ha ha!
There are some fabulous examples of postage people here on the bockel24 site. Dymphie is another great postage people maker. And don't forget to check out Linda's who is the hostess for the swap I'm in! For more inspiration, check out this interesting photo form that is very similar to postage people, called Sleeve Face Photos
