I really loved the year long Kandinsky Concentric Circles Project we did in 2016 and love all the wonderful hearts from 2017. For 2018, I have decided to go with Suns. We will make a postcard each month that features a sun on it. I really love the CBS Sunday Morning show that features a different artists sun artwork between each segment. They have some really awesome artwork. For our postcards, your sun can be any size, shape, color, etc. Feel free to paint, sew, bead, mixed media, pyrography, photograph, collage, weave, etc. The art is all up the you. You may use any art medium to make your postcards.

The only thing I ask is that all the postcards be 4 x 6 inches, and be oriented horizontal. Your creation must contain at least one Sun. It is preferred that you mail these Naked, but if yours is particularly fragile, lumpy or beaded, etc, feel free to mail it in a decorated envelope. Please include your user name and swap name somewhere on your postcards. At the end of the year, you will be able to mount all your Sun postcards together to make one big collaboration project.

You can make these separetly each month, or you can do it all at one time by making a huge master board, and save them for each month's swap. You can participate in just one swap, or every month.

We also are going to have a USA version and an Intl version. Intl version can be found Here

Interested in submitting your sun art to CBS

Yay! I love this series! I'm glad you found another theme, and it's one I absolutely LOVE! The sun is one of my favorite things. I guess it better be--I live in Phoenix! Thanks for hosting these.

I was tempted by the Heart swaps you did this year but never got the courage to jump in... So here I go for this one! Looking forward to creating and receiving a bunch of lovely Suns!

I'm so glad. And, honestly, we have a great group of swappers, so you'll fit right in. Have fun.
