Random Acts of Strangeness Postcard Swap – Part III

The first two were so fun we thought we would do it again!
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Random Acts of Strangeness Postcard Swap – Part III

Craftster member who is organizing this swap:  goatgoddess

Sign-up date range: June 23, 2006 thru July 10, 2006

Date to send item by:  Aug 9, 2006

Please be sure you have time for this swap - it's going to be fast and easy but for this swap to work everyone needs to send on time! you can get started on your postcards just as soon as you join the swap so that gives you plenty of time to make some extra strange postcards!

Please be sure to send on time and to pm or post to the list when you have Sent and Rec. - failure to do so will be reflected in the swap info.


Limited to a certain number of people? No

Non-U.S. participants allowed?  Yes.

All ages allowed?   Yes

Organizer is aware of current list of "suspended traders"
list and will not allow those members to participate: YES

Organizer meets the 4 conditions for swapping and will make sure that every participant meets these conditions: YES

THEME:  Random Acts of Strangeness - anything strange or unusual that fits on a Postcard.  =)

DISTRIBUTION:   If quite a few people sign up, we'll break it down into groups of five. If you would like to do more than five then you could sign up for more than group.  If  it’s under 10 then everyone will send a card to everyone that signed up. So depending on the signups you may be making 5 or 9 cards <G>
I will post members as people sign up at the end of this post.

DESCRIPTION:  The only rule is to make your cards as strange as possible.
What is strange? Whatever your definition of strange is. 
Some ideas to get your creative juices flowing:  Pasting animal heads on human bodies, random images that don't correlate (or do they???), surrealist art, strange or unusual quotes accompanied by an unrelated (or is it related?) photo, weird drawings of mythical creatures, mixed up song lyrics, etc.
The idea here is to create something strange and unusual.  The stranger the better!

This really is going to be a "What WILL the mail carrier think???" type of swap.

Note - if doing a collage type postcard please be sure to use packing tape over the whole postcard or gel medium to make sure none of your wonderful strange bits come off in the mail gorgaus made some wonderfully strange postcards and sadly the postoffice ate them :-(

To see how they did the first two times

Oh don't do that - this is to be a fun swap - a huge part of the fun is seeing what people come up with!   Grin

Yours will be wonderfully strange I know.  We are all our own worst critic you know. So craft away and let the the strange out!  Grin
