Kat Sloma's Liberate Your Art postcard swap. This was her third year organizing this event which encourages artists from around the world to reproduce their artwork and distribute it to others.
How it worked was each participant mailed 5 postcards of their art to Kat (mine are pictured above) who then organized a massive mailing (along with her Liberate Your Art elves) over the course of 5 weeks. Words can not express how exciting it was to go out to my mailbox each week and find these little pieces of art waiting for me.
Another terrific aspect of this swap was the community that formed on our Facebook group page. As cards started to stream in, people from around the world would post photos of what they received to our group page. It was incredibly inspiring to see all of the creativity flowing from all across the globe. And also fun to see where my cards ended up.
Every card I received was beautiful and many had heartfelt messages or quotes which brightened my day.
Below are the gorgeous pieces I received........
The top card is from Shirina from Making Moments Count. The bottom from Emelle, with a message to "Be brave! Have fun!"
The top card is from Jani who also had a message that resonated with me, "Remember that only you and you alone can create YOUR art."......so true! And the bottom card is from someone who unfortunately I can't figure out their very pretty signature. :) If it is you, please let me know!
These lovely cards came from Peter Harklau (top) and Kat Sloma (the organizer and artist extraordinaire!).
I look forward to participating in the card swap again next year and am very thankful to have been a part of it for 2013.
