It is time once again for Kat Sloma’s Liberate Your Art Postcard Exchange. I have participated every year, since the beginning in 2011. Kat’s exchange was one of the very first places I dared to share my art. There is still one day to sign up and the deadline to mail your cards is March 14, 2015. Join us!
Artists in any medium. Photography, painting, poetry, typography, jewelry, sculpture, knitting, cooking, illustration – you name it. If you can have an image of your art printed on a postcard, you are in!
You send 5 printed postcards of your art with a message written on the back, along with address labels and return postage. Kat and her crew of volunteers swap them around, and you receive 6 postcards in the mail over several weeks: 5 from participants, plus one from Kat!
You can have your cards printed professionally, or make them yourself. I always make mine.
I printed the images on photo paper, and the back of the post card is on card stock. I set them up on a sheet of 8 1/2 x 11 inch paper (in Publisher). Four to a sheet. Next I will attach the fronts to the backs, and trim as needed. Double sided tape and a paper-cutter makes assembly easy peasy! ( I blurred the message so it will be a surprise.)
I make extras and a lot of us do swaps on the side. I will share the cards I receive with you as they come in.
YAY snail mail!
