I love collage! I have always saved different bits of things that I just could not let go, and I need to put it all to good use, or at least some of it.

Sender's choice, which is great because you can start as soon as you like!

Create a 4"x6" postcard for your 1 partner. You can recycle a cereal box, use cardstock, or collage over a disliked postcard you have.

Keep in mind, that collage tends to have layers to it, so whatever you use, it may get thicker, which may change the postage. I am going for a typical 35 cent stamp as I accidentally ordered a whole sheet of them a month ago. I was not paying attention. Obviously.

You can use magazines, ephemera, some washi tape, a sticker or two, provided that they are not the focal point or too prolific in your piece, or whatever else you have that you would like to use.

I prefer to seal mine with Modpodge or something similar, but that is my choice, as it is also yours.

I will check profiles before assigning partners.

Thank you!

This is a mail art swap, so it will be mailed to your partner. I just wanted to make sure that that was clear. Thank you!

@OfficeDarling Is it okay if my postcard is sent in an envelope? I ask so that my partner doesn’t get hit with postage due, and I’d totally hate that to happen to my partner. If not, then may I use an oversized postcard (bigger than 4x6). I like this idea, I’ve sent stickered postcards successfully so I’m hoping if I use paper on my postcard it doesn’t get caught in the postal machine.

Kizzlets, if you get me as your partner, an oversized card is fine. In an envelope or naked, it is fine with me. Holly

Hello OfficeDarling. You said in your comment that the postcard will be mailed to our partner, but I still don't understand is it ok if we mail postcard in an envelope?

I was going for the 'mail art' aspect of it, but go ahead and mail in an envelope if you prefer. :)
