Lee's collage sheet challenge - mail by April 15th

Our next fabulous collage sheet comes from Lee.
Download the sheet and use it however you see fit to make a postcard.
You can alter the images, resize them, cut them, duplicate them, etc.

You don't have to use all of them.

You can add paint or crayon or marker or writing or embellishments, but don't add any images other than the ones on this sheet. 

  •  Create your postcard - any dimensions, just make sure you include the proper postage for the size.
  • Include your name and contact information on the back (address and/or email and/or blog) so that you partner can thank you or find out more about you.
  • it's nice if you write a little message for  your partner (something about you, a quote, how you made your card, etc.)
  • Write MMSA somewhere on the back of the card as well.  (I don't know about you, but I get a lot of mail, and it's sometimes hard to figure out if it's part of an organized swap or just personal mail.)
  • leave the address section blank
  • Stick in in an envelope with:
    • a stamp (don't adhere to the postcard in case I need to send yours to someone out of the country)
    •  a mailing label with your name and address on it (I will stick it on the card I mail back to you.  This keeps me from having to decipher handwriting on the envelope you send me, and saves me time when swapping everything and mailing it back out) 
  •  mail it to me no later than April 15th

  • Feel free to make more than one ( you can send them to me in the same envelope).  You'll get back the number of postcards you create.  Make sure to include a mailing label and stamp for each post card.
  • If you live outside the US, don't include stamps, but send me $1 for postage via paypal.  email:
  • I will post your work to the blog when I receive it.  If you would like your image linked to your website, or blog, or flickr account, or facebook page (or whatever) just send me a note telling me how you want it linked.  (this is a great way to meet other artists and make lots of new friends) 
Five more wonderful folks have sent me collage sheets for future challenges.  Thanks to everyone who submitted for your generosity and quick response!
Keep your eyes open for challenges from Steph, Leslie, Ria, Currie and Terrie in the coming months.


  1. Is it just me, or is there not a place to click on to get it as a download? I can click and print it as a page view, but it is small.

    1. Hi Laurie, if you're a PC user, try right-clicking on the image, if you're a mac user press control and click on the image at the same time. A menu pops up - choose "save image as" (or something similar) option from the menu. that will save it as a jpeg which you can then open and print.
