mAil aRt sWap

I  haven't hosting a swap on the blog for a while,  so I'm thinking let have one now.............  A mail art swap. 

 Have you seen those beautiful artful decorated envelops and I can't think of anything more fun and excited to open your mail box and find mail art , it beats bills and junk mail.  

Here are just a few I pinned on pintrest   http://www.pinterest.com/wendyaspinall/mail-art/


 Theme is "Create"  


You will be in groups of four  so you will decorate four envelopes  
( front and back)  and receive through the mail four back. 
If we can more than four sign up I will make groups and you can be in the other group if you want ... just let me know if you want to swap with more than one group ... This swap is open to international swappers.
The Envelopes should be NO smaller than A2  which is 4,3/8,X,5,3/4
 Mailing you swaps   I've had postcards come through the mail okay even with lace on them  but if your worried you could mail them in a vellum or the post office has envelope with a window  so the address can still be seen 

 What to put inside as it's about the art work on the envelopes   it's up  to you .... just add your calling call or moo card or if you want a letter or card.   you can also add a small piece of ephemera. old vintage letter or card or even a old photo  
 To join    I need from you, your name , mailing address,  and email address 
email me here at bliss.wda@gmail.com

 I will sort out the group and email your partners addresses to you ... Please mail to your partners and NOT to me.

 Please use the correct amount of postage.  

Each envelopes can be the same or different  I 'll let you decide  Please make sure you take a photo and and send it to me so I can showcase your art later on.  

The swap will be open until  August 15th  ...  Due date is   postmarked September 31st
