In this swap you will be swapping small collages on paper, 4x6 inches in size (postcard size, basically). These collages should have some thought to them, (no random sticker slapping for example), and can be done in many different ways-using entirely found images, adding paint, stenciling, drawing, paper scrap collaging in all one color.. In other words, it's up to you. The main requirement is that you make something you would be proud to hang on a wall. If you are using a postcard as your base, you can a8lter the postcard but the original postcard should not make up more than 15-20% of the entire collage.

The swap graphic is an example of one of my own pieces to give you an idea

You can add 3D embellishments if you like but keep your postage costs in mind, as you will have to pay more postage if your envelope is non-machineable by the postal service. Ideally you want to have your envelope weigh no more than 2 ounces.

When mailing to your partner please make sure your collage is well protected. I suggest that you put it into a notecard

You do not have to collage the back of your piece, but do consider doing so. Please make sure you add your name, identifying information, and a note that says that this is the mini collage swap.

When you receive your partner, please check his/her profile to make sure you're mindful of preferences.

Please rate less than 5 only if the collage violates your dislikes or if it is a "sticker slapping" collage with no effort made or if it is merely a regular postcard with 1-2 things stuck to it.

I will not angel this swap. There is a 10 day period during which to make your art.

A minimum 4.9 rating is required; newbies are allowed with complete profiles indicating interests and preferences. I will not allow any participants with recent 1's (since November).

I made a collage on a pre-stamped post card---can I send that naked (written and stamped on) or do I need to send it in an envelope?

Personally I'd send it in an envelope unless you ask your partner if it's okay to send it naked and s/he says yes
