Work is starting to come in. Wonderful work it is, too.
Take a look HERE
It's not too late to participate.
Send me a note with your mailing address and
I'll send you an envelope with the metro scraps

Envelopes sent to:
-- kapriize-klusee
-- Izaaaaa          

The second batch of envelopes went out today, Wednesday, July 2 to:
-- crazyruthie
-- mando-damon
-- myroski
-- theyellowhouse

The first batch of envelopes went out this morning, Monday, June 30, to:
-- hillaryault
-- 7markus7
-- offermoord
-- hrn
-- audreysmith
-- jugadi

As it turns out, I have accumulated a fair sized stash of paper collected from the ads in the Paris Metro. I'd like to share some of it with The Art Of Collage members.

So here’s the challenge: Send me a note with your surface mailing address. I’ll send you a #10 business envelope with two or three or four pieces of paper from the ads in the Paris metro. All you have to do is to use a piece of the paper in a collage and post it to the Metro Paper Challenge folder in the next two or three weeks or so. How much of the paper you use is up to you. You don’t have to use all of it or even a big piece of it. What you have left over is yours.  

Addendum:  

-- The envelopes are already prepared and sealed. Who gets what paper is random.
-- The scraps are not any bigger than a #10 business envelope (4.125 inches x 9.5 inches  10.4cm x 24.1cm) most are somewhat smaller.

Here's what the scraps look like, generally.

Yes more than one per participant is allowed. Send them in as you finish them or hold them and send them together. Either way is good. Work until you run out of paper. I might even be able to send more scraps if you want/need them.

I would love to do this - I just don't have time right now. Looking forward to what everyone does with the scraps.

Thanks, Ken, I will.

Heh - this just reminded me of a year ago - I was going to review a collage exhibit for you and the next thing I knew I couldn't walk and was about to have hip surgery. Well - that can't happen again!

I'd forgotten about that -- the exhibition, not your hip.
I'm happy you and your hip have recovered so well.

Thanks, Ken. I was in good shape except for what was wrong with me - that was the key I think.
