A masterboard is a larger piece of art that is cut down into smaller sections - in the case of this swap, we'll be cutting the masterboards we create into postcard sized pieces. Four postcards from one large masterboard.
Start your masterboard by sourcing a large substrate to work on. Something 8.5" x 11" or larger. You can use the side of a cereal box or heavy-weight art papers like bristol board or watercolor paper.
Once you get your substrate, art it up! Use multiple mediums to create a layered and interesting end result. Collage with patterned papers, ephemera, images, die-cuts; add paint with stencils, doodle with pens, pencils, crayons or markers; rubber stamp, spray ink...you name it, go for it. Ultimately colors, artistic style and theme are sender's choice.
When your substrate is at a good place, chop it into FOUR individual postcards. Minimum mailable size is 3.5" x 5", but you can of course go larger. It will just cost more postage.
FINISH your masterboard postcards with additional details---quotes, words, more images. Do not just send the background as is. You will be sending one of your finished masterboard postcards to each of your 4 partners, naked and stamped.
