Hello Wonderful Mail Artists, 

 I hope you are having a healthy, happy, creative summer.

Here's a challenge with just a few steps, so creating your post cards to swap should be quick and easy.

1. Paint, ink, rubber stamp, decorate various papers like old book pages, news paper, advertising ("junk mail") or cardstock, which you can use for your backgrounds and also collage elements. (I used some Gelli Plate prints with acrylic paints on Deli Paper (translucent) for my torn layers...)

2.  Rip or tear parts of your decorated papers into pieces with various shapes.  Rough edges are expected :)

3.  Line them up, mix them up, weave them if you want to; overlap shapes, fold, etc.

4Collage (glue) these shapes onto your post card background papers.

5.  OPTIONAL:  Add details with rubber stamping or markers, etc. to finish your collaged cards' designs.

  • You may submit as many as five Post Cards.  (You will get back the same number as you send in, each one from a different artist.)

Mail your PC's to your host in an envelope, and your host will mail out the swapped PC's after the swap is processed.
