As the leaves turn colours and fall, and the thoughts of winter start to creep in, I am already starting to think of all of the places I’d like to go to get away, and the fun things I’d like to do on a vacation. Here’s your chance to go on a vacation to the land of your dreams!
You’re going to choose or invent a place to go visit. You’ll come up with a name, find a photo (or multiple photos) showing what you’d see there, and you’ll even design a flag for this new land! You will incorporate a photograph of yourself visiting this land. Put the name of the place on the postcard using those Photo Letters we did in an earlier project!
Your postcard should be 6 inches wide and 4 inches tall. Like your trading card, it will have a front and a back side, so you will need more than one page/artboard.
NOTE: This is not quite what yours should look like! You need to read the instructions and make sure you are including all of the right elements:
A postcard also has a back side. That side contains an area to write your letter, an area for the address you are sending the card to, and a stamp. You should draw lines like the ones you see below. You should design a stamp to put in the corner.
- You are not finding a photo of a postcard and putting that on. You are DESIGNING YOUR OWN.
- You are not finding a photo of a flag and putting that on, You are DESIGNING YOUR OWN.
- You are not finding a photo of a stamp and putting that on, You are DESIGNING YOUR OWN.
You should know how to do all of these things by now, so I’m not going to show you step-by-step instructions. If there is anything that you’re not sure about ASK FOR HELP! It’s far better to be sure than to have to redo something because you didn’t ask a question so you didn’t do it right.
