What is behind "your curtain"? Is it a theatre play or a musical? Is it the view into your house or out of your house? Is it a glimpse into your soul? Is is a look onto a secret wish?

Please make two ATCs ( any medium, standard 2,5 x 3,5 size) for two partners ( four altogether).

This is an international swap.

Newbies are welcome, but have a well-filled out profile or contact me first.

If you have a rating lower than 4.5, please contact me.

Anyhow, you can contact me with all questions.

You can post your ATCs on Flickr: http://www.flickr.com/groups/[email protected]/

That's a pretty cool theme! I think some pretty cleaver things can come out of this swap!

Leave it to somebody to ask it and it might as well be me...Does it have to be a fabric curtain over the entire ATC? Can it be a shutter instead of a curtain? And can it be a pulled back curtain made of flat paper ( like a cut out of a photo of a curtain pulled back )to show partial curtain and partial what is behind it? Or could it just have a curtain photo or drawing in it somewhere even if it covers nothing? Some of us thrive on rules! lol

I think your curtain is your curtain whatever your curtain looks like. You choose! I hope there will be many different curtains. And I hope to find out how to open a site where we can put up the photos of each ATC as I really think there might be wonderful ideas everyone has. I am so excited, already nine people who take part. Please dont mind my spelling errors, I am German so my English might not be the best. But I hope everyone can understand what I mean. You can have a look at the first ATC I made on my Flickr page. http://www.flickr.com/photos/aladyde/2250321305/

Thanks for the invite.

Why don't you create a Flickr group? If you need any help, I'll be happy to do it for you. :-)

aladyde 02/11/2008 #

Thank you for joining and your offer, your teacher. I suddenly remembered how to do it. You can see the link now.

Thank you for the invitation.This is interesting and should be fun to create.

Timeless63 02/14/2008 #

Oh good, i like the idea of being able to do different things so i dont stress out over it...

Kathyy 02/20/2008 #

Neat idea, thanks for posting about it on flickr. Is there any reason not to post the pictures here?

aladyde 02/20/2008 #

I havent found a way to post the pictures here, Kathy.

aladyde 02/20/2008 #

By the way, welcome everyone who joined. Please spread the news and make more people join. I know it is not an easy topic. But fun I am sure.

That's really cute - i did one once for my niece. Any type curatin goes?

LindaTemple 03/ 1/2008 #

Hmmmmm.....When I read the description I didn't think a "curtain" was required. Sounded to me like the question was, what is behind Your curtain? Made me think of what is my dream and do I want to share it with someone, and how would I put it on an ATC. Guess I COULD go ahead and put a little curtain on it. What was your intention aladyde?

aladyde 03/ 2/2008 #

It sure can be a curtain which nobody else can see. We want to look behind it. You are free to use a "real" curtain or not.

LindaTemple 03/ 2/2008 #

Thanks! I am still thinking about what to put on the card!

AliceAtTheBeach 03/ 3/2008 #

I'm sorry I need to cancel. I am in the middle of a move.

GypsyDyann 03/ 5/2008 #

I guess we could also have a photo on in which a curtain is part of the image? Maybe add another fabric curtain over the image curtain! Wow I guess there are LOTS of ways to go!

YourTeacher 03/26/2008 #

One of the partners I'm meant to send to has been "partially suspended", what should I do?

aladyde 03/28/2008 #

I wrote to him but havent got an answer so far. As it seems he is sending out again. There are two new ratings. Your teacher, please send out to him. If he doesnt send out, let me know so that I can replace.
