We haven't had a full-sheet decorated papers swap in a while. Start with an 8+1/2" x 11"piece of copy paper, office paper or light-weight, flexible card stock (no thick, stiff or heavy papers please). Decorate five (5) pieces to exchange with swap partners.

Here are some idea-starters for materials/techniques: Gelli Plate Printing, Dendritic designs, Drip & Drag Paints (watercolors, acrylics, etc.), inks, block printing, stencil work, rubber stamping, VERY light/flexible collage if you choose that technique... etc.

It helps me TREMENDOUSLY when each participant writes artist's name plus email address on the back of each piece. This makes processing the exchange much easier than if there's no artist's info on the back. Thank you.

Also, including one unused flat brown or white 9" x 12" mailer envelope would help keep my mailing costs to you low. Okay to fold spare envelope, but please DON'T FOLD YOUR ART PIECES. Just mail them flat inside a large mailer/envelope.

Postage cost for five pieces of paper enclosed in a large flat envelopes (9" x 12") starts at $1.20 - two FOREVER stamps. (Including a new blank mailer envelope might bump it up to the next rate.) You can attach postage stamps and your mailing address label to your intended return mailer, or include them "loose." Thanks.
