After receiving an assortment of lovely decorated papers
in a recent swap, let's make something with them!
I know, you might just want to hold on to them,
but if you will incorporate parts of some of them
into Artist Trading Cards (2+1/2" x 3+1/2")
you will still have papers left over.
CAUTION: Keep in mind that any embellishments like beads, brads or 3-D stickers might require cushioning with protective tissue or thin bubble wrap. NOTE: Those who didn't participate in the recent Decorated Papers Group Swap may participate in this swap by incorporating their own decorated papers. THEME: ATC's using Decorated Papers MEDIA: Your choice TECHNIQUE: Your choice SIZE PARAMETERS: 2+1/2" x 3+1/2" CHECKLIST:
WAXED PAPER BETWEEN EACH PIECE
YOUR RETURN ADDRESS ON BOTH ENVELOPES
Put your ATC's in an envelope and send by July 17th
TO: Honi Chassin PO Box 142 Freedom, NY 14065 Questions? firstname.lastname@example.org
You may submit as many as four ATC's. (You will get back the same number you send, each from a different artist)
Mail your ATC's to your host in an envelope, and your host will mail out the swapped ATC's in the self-addressed envelope you provide.
If you're sending more than one ATC, please insert waxed paper or parchment between the cards so they don't get stuck together in the envelope. Art pieces with glue, paint or sealant are very likely to get stuck together
in summer's heat and humidity.
Write “MMSA - Use It " on the back of each ATC
Please write your return address on the back of the ATC and consider including your email address so the recipient can thank you.
Enclose a self-addressed stamped envelope with your return address, and non-machinable postage (currently 70-cents)
INTERNATIONAL SWAPPERS - contact the swap host regarding using PayPal to cover return mailing postage, or make other arrangements.
So far, 22 people have sent in art for this swap. I just love the variety of designs, so zesty and refreshing! (Thank you, all who protected your art with waxed paper or other non-stick paper. Many of the painted cards are arriving a bit tacky in this heat and humidity...) One from Barbara D:
