Welcome to the Liberate Your Art Postcard Swap Blog Hop!
|Photo of the collage that was on my postcard.|
The swap was relatively easy to do. I took photos of my collage work, printed the photos and adhered them to a postcard. I had in my stash of stuff the adhesive backed postcards so I didn't even need to purchase those! I wrote a message on the back of each postcard and mailed my 5 postcards & 5 address labels off to Kat prior to the deadline. I think the hardest part was deciding what to put on the postcard - sending your art out into the world can be a little scary and intimidating but in the end it was a lot of fun. Kat was extremely helpful when she set the swap up with resources and various ways you could approach the project.
As I began to receive the postcards I emailed each person that provided their email to let them know I got their postcard and to thank them for participating in the swap. Several of the people who sent me postcards also provided their blogs,website and/or etsy addresses as well. So I checked those out too. I found it very interesting to see what they were all working on. I listed the blogs, website and etsy addresses in the posts with their postcards so you can check them out as well.
As people started to receive my postcards I received emails and blog comments from them. While I had provided 5 postcards I only heard back from 4 people. I'm sure it was a matter of the postcard getting lost in the mail. I was able to check their blogs/websites as well which I enjoyed.
It was so much fun (kind of like your birthday!) to come home from work to find a postcard or email.
Now that you see how easy it is I hope you'll join us for the next swap which is tentatively set to happen in early 2012.
