Here is a challenge for those who like to make collage: use as many different types of paper as you can while designing each post card you make, from one to four total, and on the back of each one, list your materials used. Whoever uses the most different types of paper on his/her swap piece will win a small prize from your swap host. ***If you do not list your materials used, you will not be eligible to win.*** (I hope to make cards to swap but will not participate in the contest.) If there is more than one winner, an impartial person (a post office employee?) will "draw one name out of a hat." The winner will be announced in 2018 after the swap is completed. The "ties" will also be mentioned.
Some possibilities for starters: Deli waxed paper paper towel hand-made paper typing paper construction paper vellum watercolor paper tissue paper Kraft paper label paper onion skin paper newspaper graph paper notebook paper ledger paper tracing paper parchment paper freezer paper waxed paper wrapping paper sand paper (?) etc.
