FYI: The image shown won't always depict the color for each swap, they are only examples, make sure to pay attention to what color each swap is:) ALSO, these ATCs are not mine, they were found on Google!

I'm really fond of making Altered Text ATCs. They are quite simple and fun to come up with the end result. The rules are pretty basic. Make a standard size ATC and use a book page as your foundation. Maybe attach a piece of cardstock under your book page to help make your ATC stronger. You will then make up your own phrase, sentence, story, etc out of the words on the book page you have on your ATC. Yours can be more elaborate or even more abrubt and to the point. Your chosen text can be vague and abstract in a way as well.

Your ATC should be the standard 2.5x3.5 inches! There have been a couple swaps going through at different sizes O.o.

You can use a book page, magazine page, any type of page. Essentually you'll be making a random phrase or sentence from various words on your page. If you are using foreign language pages, please include what your phrase/chosen text means and says.

Once you've figured out your phrase, sentence, story or what have you, you'll attach them all together so that your partner can see your chosen text. Once you've done this your next job is to coat it with the color BLACK. IT CAN HAVE OTHER COLORS, but black needs to be the main color. Think paint, markers, glitter, any type of covering with color is just fine. You can add embellishments, stamps, stamped images, images, or anything you'd like. OR you can keep it simple like the ATC pictured.

Since I've seen great interest, we will be doing tons of these, once I assign partners for all swaps, I will post the next one so please check it out if you want to join!

This ATC is senders choice but it is always nice to check out your partners profile and perhaps create this ATC based on their style. For example, I'm a spooky gal and I like spooky things so you could, IF you wanted, create one that would be profile based. HOWEVER, you don't have to, you can make it any way you choose!!!!

You will have two partners to send one ATC to, for a total of 2 ATCs.

I'm putting a rating of 4.9 allowed because everyone deserves second chances.


If you'd like to check out more examples of Altered Text, simply go here and you'll see many:

The possibilities are endless and these are fun!

Again, I will post more of these in different color themes and in free themes.

Oh, and if your an 'anti-ripping up books fan' save your comments and drama and simply bi-pass this swap!
