Description:

I have a paper compulsion. Which is good, because I love to create with paper. I also have lots of scraps. And! Sometimes I will tear up magazine pages, just to have more scraps.

So, for this swap, we are going to create a postcard out of scraps. It is important that you think about design and make a pleasing postcard when you do this.

(Everyone has a different idea about what is pleasing, so don't rate down if you do not like the design)

This is an enjoyable process if you let yourself get out of the way of creating something perfect. Just use up your scraps!

Clearly, the medium needs to be paper. Make sure it will standup to going through the post. So a strong backing is necessary. No odd embellishments, they will get torn off. Think flat scraps.

Your postcard should at least maintain postal regulations, but can be larger. Remember, larger may require more postage.

Send stamped and naked. Remember to include the name of the swap and your name so people can rate you. Please rate!

This is mail art, so have fun creating something you would love receiving.

Mine might have done flat non-paper scraps, maybe fabric or thread or paper-from-linen/banana leaves instead of tree, just bits from the top of my craft table.... but I will also send a 2nd 100% dead-tree paper if my partner wants/needs.
