Hey Collage Artists! Join the Fun with the Collage Scrap Exchange!

Collage Scrap Exchange

If you work with collage, I’m willing to bet that like me, you have bits and pieces of paper scraps that are floating around your studio. Well, it’s time to round ’em up for a fun activity called the Collage Scrap Exchange! Take some of your random bits of paper and put ’em in an envelope and send them to an artist you’ve never met (from somewhere else in the world!)

My illustration blog, Brown Paper Bag, has teamed up with the affordable art subscription service Papirmass to bring you this fun art contest. Here’s how it works (and what you can win!):

  1. Sign up to participate in the Col­lage Scrap Exchange until November 15
  2. After November 15, Brown Paper Bag and Papirmass will match up col­lage partners
  3. You’ll pack­age your scraps and mail ‘em via snail mail to your partner (this is a world wide project!)
  4. Once you receive your partner’s package, make a col­lage (or collages) using both of your scraps! Theme: New Landscapes
  5. Turn in your fin­ished art­work before the Feb­ru­ary 15, 2015 deadline

You can win a prize package worth over $250 ($125 cash prize + 2 free subscriptions for Papir­mass + get your work published in an issue of Papirmass).

Join the fun with makers all around the world!

      Hi Clemencia!

      You just have to send a picture of it – no need to ship it anywhere. There’ll be detailed instructions of where/how to digitally submit it once we match you with your partner. 🙂
