Introducing a Postcard Swap: Sign up today!

Have you ever traded art with anyone?  I used to swap art postcards all the time.  Here are some from my collection... See how I used a little binder ring to connect them together?

Featuring magazine is having a call for mail art to illustrate an article.  See the details here.  They are due Feb. 25 to the magazine. 

To coincide with this mail art call, Artists in Blogland is going to have a POSTCARD SWAP.  See, you can sign up for our swap, and then make a few extra to send to Featuring magazine.  Here's the details of OUR SWAP.

1.   Email Marcia with your postal address.  Sign ups close Jan. 25.  Start making your cards now!
2.   Make THREE original postcards (sized 4"x6") using any media... watercolors, collage, inks, stamping, colored pencils, fabric....  you are only limited to your imagination. 
3.  Write your contact info on the back (email or blog address, name, etc.) so that your recipients can thank you.
4.   After Jan. 25, Marcia will send out a list of participants (with addresses).  You will send ONE postcard to each of the three people listed below your name.  You may be sending internationally, so keep that in mind.  Send your postcards in the mail by February 14 (Valentine's Day, easy to remember).  Don't forget to send some extras to Featuring magazine!
