ATCs are my favorite things. I know some people fear what the super artist critics here think based on..maybe something you've heard or read in the forum or something?
Well, lets give it a try.
Please look on flickr for 'atc' and you'll get a world of inspiration (I still do and I've done this for MANY years).
You'll want to use something sturdy for your backing. (Think heavy cardstock. Even better, I alter sports cards. They're the exact correct size so I just cover it with a plain piece of colored paper or my image I'm using. OR craftstores sell perfect ATC blanks.).
The sky is the limit. I've used melted crayons, rubber stamps, glitter, lace, and I don't know what all else to make the ATC beautiful. Try to stick to something on the flat-ish end though.
Fill out the back. It should include: Your username, the title of the swap, the date, etc. Google ATC back and look at the pics. That's what a typical ATC back looks like.
And most importantly, HAVE FUN. Ask any questions and I'd be happy to answer what I can. :)
I will allow newbies, but please have a filled out profile and remember to rate your partners when you've received your ATC. You will make 3 atcs (to get some good practice) and send 1 atc to each of your partners. The theme is up to you.
ONCE AGAIN: this is for beginners. Experienced members are welcome to join but must know that I'm allowing people with zero experience ever doing this and as such you CAN NOT rate down because you do not like something. I am asking that people try and to try their best. That's it. No one has to have a degree here.
