Black and White Swap - Send by June 26th

Beau's sketch/drawing
Description:
With the bright colors of summer all around us, how about taking a simple, calming break and playing with blacks and whites instead!  We'll put them on white or black postcards using any medium you prefer:  crayons, pens, inks, black and white pencils, paints of any kind, old photos or bits of papers, or anything else you can think of.

Beau is hosting this swap.  A little bit of gray (as for shading or in an old black and white photo) is acceptable, but please make them predominantly black and white.  Go crazy or go simple, wherever your mood takes you.  Abstract, realistic, cartoon, collage, original drawings, designs, or tangles... the sky's the limit. Let yourself go and let's see what we all come up with. Easy-peasy, right?

NOTE: IF YOU PREFER (LIKE I DO) TO RECEIVE YOUR POSTCARDS UNBLEMISHED FROM THEIR HARROWING RIDE THROUGH THE MAIL MACHINES, SEND A LARGER-THAN-POSTCARD SIZED SELF-ADDRESSED STAMPED ENVELOPE WITH NON-MACHINABLE POSTAGE, AND I WILL SEND YOUR EXCHANGES TO YOU IN THAT. Otherwise, they will go through the postal system as "naked" postcards. If that is your  preference, please enclose your stamps loose.
I can't wait to see what wonderful gems you all create! Meanwhile, stay cool and enjoy your Summer!
