Homemade Postcards

I was at Aaron Brothers and positively salivating but also a bit bewildered by all the mixed media materials.....no wonder artists are broke.  Well I'm no artist, but I do want to create.  I made this postcard to send to my friend, Shannon.  I found the old-fashioned post card template via Google images.  The Queen Elizabeth image is from a book about coronations, which hadn't been checked out since 1985 and which I weeded from my school library.  The poem conveys a panic attack I recently suffered, but I stuck that iconic image of British posters admonishing citizens to endure the stresses and strains of World War II--the only spot of color in this black and white collage.
