"E" IMAGES - COLLAGED Post Card Swap - Postmark by: MONDAY, July 10th

Participants in this post card exchange may layer many images of things that start with the letter "E."  

Here are just a few idea starters:

Elephant, Envelope, Eyeball, Eggplant, Ear, Eatery, Eel, Earth, Elevator, Eraser, Estuary, Easel, Eclipse, for instance.

See how many you can come up with on your own (although it's OK to look in a dictionary).  Good image sources might be old books, magazines, catalogs, newspapers, etc.  Incorporate the images into your collaged design in post card format, to be exchanged with other participants.

Make sure your collage pieces are securely fastened, and adhesive is dry before you send in.  Waxed paper between each PC might be a good safety measure.

FREE HINT:  Magazine pictures tend to be glossy, so when I collage with them, I gently burnish the back of each piece with an emery board to lightly roughen up the glossy coat which will then take adhesive and adhere better to your background.

Oh, and list each item on the reverse side (message side) of your post card to make it easier  for your recipient to look for.  : )

Summary: for this exchange, make 1 - 5 collaged post cards featuring images of things that start with the letter "E."



  • You may submit as many as five Post Cards.  (You will get back as many as you send in.)
  •  Mail your PC's to your host in an envelope, and your host will mail out the swapped PCs after the swap is processed.
  • Include loose postage for each PC sent in, also, the same number of self-address labels for me to use when sending out your return art.
  • If you're sending more than one PC, please insert waxed paper or parchment between the
  •  cards if there is a chance they might get stuck together in the envelope.  
  • Please write your return address (or use address label) and/or email address at the top left corner on the back of each PC so the recipient can thank you.
  • Also, note the Swap Name on back of each post card.
  • Participants:  get your 1 - 5 post cards into the mailing system by MONDAY JULY 10th.
  • Contact me if your mailing might be delayed.
