We've had several previous art exchanges with this theme, and it's always fun to see what comes in. Here's another chance to make art using the designs inside many business envelopes. Those who do their bill-paying online may not receive envelopes in the mail. Contact me if you need some patterns to work with.
Your post card art could be mostly collage, but you may certainly embellish with your own markings. I found that rubber stamp pads scuffed across the pattern will give you more color selection than black-and-white or blue-and-white. (Sometimes you can find a red-and-white lined envelope...)
- You may send in as many as four Post Cards. (You will get back the same number you send, each from a different artist,)
- If you're sending more than one PC, please insert waxed paper or parchment between the cards so they don't get stuck together in the envelope..
- Please write your return address or email address on the back of the PC so the recipient
- can thank you.
