Have you ever made an art masterboard and cut it into ATCs (or postcards)? It's so satisfying to see how each one can be so different although they all come from the same sheet! The masterboard is not considered a "background" and should be interesting enough to be able to stand alone without much further embellishment when cut.

For this swap, you'll make a masterboard (min size for 4 ATCs would be 5x7", but I usually make a larger board, at least 9x12) then cut it into ATCs (2.5"x3.5") and send one ATC to each of your 3 USA partners. Keep another for yourself or cut remainder into greeting cards, postcards, junk journal fodder, bookmarks, etc. Use any medium you'd like but I find the more types you use, the better! Just make it really interesting and use a sturdy backing.

I've included some info on masterboards below. (The swap image is mine from another masterboard project.)

What is a masterboard?

Mixed media masterboard #1

Mixed media masterboard #2

I can't wait to see what you all come up with! (Note: swap needs a minimum of 4 people to participate)
