Liberate Your Art - Blog Hop

I've not long posted about the postcards I received during the swap however for this weekend there is a blog hop for all the participants so here is my entry for the weekend.

When I first spotted the swap on another blog I immediately checked in and signed up. I joined Postcrossing.com at the beginning of the year so being able to actually send my artwork to people who would appreciate it via Kat in America, I couldn't help but jump at the chance, and to not only send art but receive it too.

The idea of the swap was to create five printed postcards of your own artwork, whatever that art be and send them to Kat in America whom then swapped them all about and mailed them all out across the world, each person receiving 5 postcards in return. A way of sharing your artwork, and connecting with other artists across the blogging world.

So many photographers, artists, and crafters alike joined in that there were over 200 participants meaning everyone involved would receive an extra postcard from Kat herself for joining in.

Here are all the postcards I received from the swap:

Liberate your Art Postcard swap

I would like to say a HUGE thankyou for the lovely postcards and messages I received and a special thankyou to Kat for organising, distributing, it's been a HUGE success and I would love to do it again in the near future.

Thankyou for the lovely card Kat and what a wonderful way to finish the swap with a blog hop!

Unfortunately I didn't take a picture of my 5 postcards before sending them on to Kat so I am looking for them in the Blog Hop below... Happy Blog-hopping everyone!
