Participants, create 1 - 4 MUG post cards (6" x 4+1/4") with your own design and shape, whether tall or chunky, fancy or plain. An internet search for hand-decorated mugs can be a springboard for great ideas.

Designing your mug art on a card stock postcard background is an option. Another is cutting out the shape with no background. If you do that, please keep your overall design smaller than 7" x 5".
I highly recommend using CARD STOCK (index card weight) rather than cardboard or poster board, as the stiffer, thicker heavier-weight paper would require more postage, of course.

Some idea-starters might include Marbleizing technique, rubber stamped designs, collage, spray inks, Gelli Plate prints, the recent Drip and Drag paint technique, etc.

If your art requires an envelope to go out to your swap partners, I will provide the envelopes so you won't have to enclose envelopes in your mail-in to me. (Recently we've seen some problems with several light-weight envelopes getting ripped open, chewed up and spit out by the US Postal sorting machines. Sometimes the contents make it, sometimes they don't.)

Be sure to put your name and contact information on the back of each piece you send in to be exchanged, so your swap partners can thank you.
*****ANYTHING LARGER THAN POST CARD SIZE LIMITS WILL REQUIRE AT LEAST 58-CENTS LETTER RATE POSTAGE.*****
