Alright. You know the routine. Send and receive twelve postcards. Unlike rules for the other postcard swaps, you must make all of the postcards you send. This postcard swap has taken on the theme of female/feminism so be sure to incorperate this into your design and text. Why should I sign up?
Postage on standard size postcards is only $0.23 (6in long by 4-1/4in high). Any size larger than that is just $0.37. This is a very inexpensive swap! Plus...you'll get to go wild creating! And who doesn't want to receive a multitute of "women" postcards? Not me!How to create:
I suggest using colored cardstock (because it is studry) for your "foundaton" and transforming it. Some ideas include collage, photography, block prints, paint, texture, patterns, computer generated design, leaf/nature impressions, stamp, stickers...plus: anything of these ideas can be incorperated into something really beautiful if you add text such as poetry or.....who knows what. Be as creative and original as you can, but keep it clean
and mailable (as in, you don't want funny apendages prodruding from your postcard that would be likely to fall off during the journey your postcard will take to your fellow craftsters mailbox). This swap is more about personal expression and fun than perfection. As far as the backsides, you can scrawl pretty much anything you like.....graffiti, poetry, ramblings, more artwork, quotes, jokes, notes, lipstick smudges.....If you're interested, please fill in the information below. Remember: Our theme is female/feminism related.
Create something that represents what this means to you.
When can I begin?
The address lists will be out late Friday or Saturday. In the meantime, feel free to get started on your rockin postcards. Additional inspiration can be found in the swap gallery as well as inside your very crafty self!A note on postcard swappin':
Delivery confirmation can not be obtained through regular post...therefore, postcard swaps will run on the honor system, so please be honest. If you can't send your postcards on time, let us know! If you want to participate, information to send to organizer:
