We all have them ... supplies that we hoard, that we pore over and fondle but never seem to use. Beautiful paper, bright shiny gems, artistamps, or in this case, images! Oh, that last image in your collage sheet from a defunct source! The stunning map of Paris, a one of a kind thrifted treasure. The vintage matchbook with the logo of that swanky restaurant in NYC. You know, the thing that makes your stomach clench when you think of using it. The image that you consider repeatedly, but always decide to save for a bigger and better project.

Make this that project!

Use your treasures!

Share the Mail Art love!

You will make one piece of Mail Art for 1 partner using one of your hoarded images. These swaps will normally be sender's choice as to format (envelope or postcard), but for this swap we'll be using an envelope - business size or bigger - and including at least three images in an envelope for your partner to use in their Mail Art. Although this is a fantastic group, I will of course be checking profiles before assigning partners, and I will angel if anyone doesn't receive a piece of mail art to treasure.

Happy Swapping!

Am I reading this correctly? We should be using our hoarded image on the outside of an envelope and putting three images to share inside the envelope. Right?

That's right exactly, @FarStarr ... the hoarded image on the outside, some (3) of your less treasured images inside.

I think I'm having palpitations just thinking of using something special, but I'll bite... :)
