I have a new Project in mind!!!!
It has everything to do with promotional printed materials. Stuff that you can find just about everywhere. In stores, restaurants, pubs, bars, shopping malls, waiting rooms, our mail boxes - the real ones that is,... the list goes on I'm sure. All sorts of cards, leaflets, tiny cards, thin catalogs, maps... things that were printed out to tell us about events, services, projects or just for purely promotional reasons. Well, these things can be used for something else too! They can be re-purposed as collage elements in our sketchbooks or art projects. And here's what I'm aiming at - art projects. Even more in particular - art postcards.
|look at all the papers we found!|
How about we start making postcards when we get together with our friends? When we are out in that coffee shop and want to have a bit of creative fun.Or when we are alone, sitting in the waiting room waiting to be called in. Wouldn't it be much better to create a card while waiting instead of being immersed in that tiny display on our smart phone? And wait, there's another great thing we can do with the cards. We can send them to one of our friends across the globe or... gasp... swap it with another art card that has been made in the same way. Can you sense where I'm going? :)

And now for the part where I really need some help. I need a nice hash tag for this project so that we can use it across social media to connect. And to name the group I'm about to open on FB to welcome you in and host swaps. I need a nice name that will reflect what we are doing so please please, share your ideas no matter how weird you think they are. Thank you in advance. Let's do this! ♥

the cards are not all about the collage if you fear this is the case... they can be altered with drawing on them only, or cutting out of them ... it's all about your ideas and stuff you have at hands
