This swap theme always inspires creativity as participants work with 8+1/2" x 11" paper or card stock sheets to add their decorative touch. We are hoping for original art, flat background pieces we can use in future art projects. Or you could make something suitable to be framed!
To decorate your five (5) sheets for this exchange you may paint, ink, sketch, rubber stamp, stencil, or layer, but PLEASE, NO DIGITAL IMAGES, NO STICKERS, NO GLITTER. Thank you. We want to see your original designs :)
SIZE: 8+1/2" x 11" papers, mailed flat (not folded) in a large Kraft or manilla envelope and a large stamped self-addressed envelope (folded once) included inside.
Your mailing will probably go as a "FLAT." (See your friendly postal clerk for proper postage.)
VERY IMPORTANT: PLEASE!!! include your name, address and/or your email address, on the BACK of each paper near an edge.
Also, include or affix adequate postage for your return envelope, approximately 2 FOREVER stamps.
Art with these three colors: Red, Black & White together can be very striking.
