OK I'm sick of seeing postcard swaps on an ART swap page that all say "store bought" thats not ART guys come on... Please if u just want to postcard swap with store bought postcards try postcrossing.com its full of this.


I want the ART tgat YOU HAND CREATE please!

So for a change of pace lets do a hand made postcard swap. O and I think I'll be doing these often untill I see more hand made postcard swaps to enter. Give us artsy people something to do in the postcard section of this site.

Size 4' by 6' Any medium Artist choice Envelope optional

Newbie friendly everyone welcome have fun! And of course CREATE!!

Lol! I hate that too! The swap will say β€œArt PCs” or something but it’ll say storebought only. Pretty much it means the postcard has got to be a painting by somebody. It tricks me!

I may join this as soon as i am able. have missed seeing u

samsstuff 03/ 4/2019 #

I so agree with you!

LadyCyr 03/ 4/2019 #

Selenew- I will look into it thank u for letting me know

Stephiedee- perfect thank u I will check each of these out and see if they are right for me.

Larina- ikr!! And here I was thinking it was only me tgat got ticked by that. U don't know how many times I've wanted to b rebelous and send aomething I art the front of but knowing my luck I'd get the 1 persnickity one who would give be a low rating for that. Anyway ALL the swaps I host r hand made so u can always be on the look out for ones I do.

Myancey- please do we would love to have u. And I am glad u remembered me and missed me that's sweet. Thank you and no worries I'll have plenty of my hand made swaps going soon.

Samsstuff- I felt it time to do something about it perhaps I can start a trend of HAND MADE and those wanting the easy cop out of buying a card can go to postcrossing.com a great place for that but this site is an art swap site. To me that means u have to make the art not just buy something.

So to all of u who agree please create hand made postcard swaps too and I will join if u let me know about them. :)

Wow! Congrats @LadyCyr ... This swap has made it into the Top Ten!! Yay Handmade!! :D

anthonymcdaniels22 03/13/2019 #

May I use printed post cards that I design on paint?

moonillusion 03/13/2019 #

@Anneke everyone starts new. It’s the live for art and the continuance to want to try new ideas and mediums. Practice makes beautiful! I personally like they way one project direction turns out so totally different by each individuals imagination and creativity. I must agree need more handmade swaps!

LadyCyr 03/13/2019 #

Riftvegan- wow really???? Cool I hope that means it will be a trend. It will be a series for me so be on the look out this is just the 1st of these.

Anthonymcdaniels22- it says any medium. So if u use something that is started for you by being a printed format please make sure its enough of you not to be confused for store bought and I'm OK w using a print as the base if u add your creation to it.

Mooniusion- I'm glad I could fufill the need w this hand made swap.

LadyCyr 03/13/2019 #

To the 36 watchers.... What does it take to get you to join rather than watch? Watching means missing the creation fun, you all know you want a piece in your mailbox too so jump on in the join pool the waters of creative energy are warm and bubbly and we would all love you to join!

Frickenjazzed 03/13/2019 #

LadyCyr 03/13/2019 #

LadyCyr 03/14/2019 #

I hope you have many more Home made postcard swaps. I would love to join, but I am signed up for too many time consuming ones this time around. Glad to see that so many like homemade!

LadyCyr 03/15/2019 #

Thequilterslink- yes I will this is just the 1st I will do many. I also have other hand made post card swaps up now. Like the hand made tarot card postcard and the anything but white posycard. And I just completed a hand made st pats post card and hand made osyara post card. All the swaps I run are hand made ones. This one will be a series. So there will be many more.

Anneke 03/29/2019 #

I just want to post a thank you comment. This swap is really too sweet. I have gotten 2 of my 3 postcards. 2 different techniques and not even related to the technique I used myself. Such a joy to receive postcards that are made with love and passion.
