This may be a type 2 for being flat but to me it is a 3 .

We have done this before on a written page such as a page from a dictionary, a book, map, anything with words on it.

This time using one color - Red!

You outline your drawing in black, fill in with color RED. You choose the subject on it. I hope to get enough interest to do a color each month.

Size -ATC Newbies with filled out profile welcomed No 1 ratings past 12 months. 3 ratings I will check for reason and if too many.

too bad it's only USA. it's just art, nothing to heavy to send in. Your loss guys, could have gotten some awsome art from Israel.

@pazmo i can do a private with you if you would like.

Marsha907 06/ 3/2014 #

I'm looking at doing a complicated drawing, can the negative space (background) be what's colored red?

ladydy5 06/ 3/2014 #

Pazmo, true about the cost but not most want to send international. We have awesome art here in the USA also. Saying our loss is not very diplomatic of you. Excellent blue crayons your offer to her.

I agree with with you ladydy5 TOTALLY and back you 110%! I am also thankful to you for doing this USA ONLY swap because it seems to me its be mostly international swaps in the top 20 favorites..not that I do not like them..I do!!..I just simply no way can NOT afford it! FYI..Pazmo..you may think it is just an "atc"..true..BUT..I ..ALWAYS SEND EXTRAS..AND..A LOT OF THEM..SOOOO..NOOO..I CANNOT AFFORD!! One more thing...I can state for a FACT..that there are hundreds of thousands if not millions of the MOST brilliant artist in the entire world right here in the United States of America! I doubt it will be "our loss" not to get yours! With sooo many swaps...why be so mean??!!

There is great art all over the world.

Mailing up to 3 ATCs (if you keep them in a row and not piled up in one envelope), with no extras, can go for our lowest rate if mailed within the USA. It costs more than twice as much to mail to outside the USA, even if it's to Canada.

I notice that in the picture, you are coloring with water color. Is there a trick to not having the watercolor buckle?

jkatz 06/ 9/2014 #

I mean, not having the watercolor buckle the paper?

ilyak 06/ 9/2014 #

awwwh I wish this was international i'm Canadian ..

ilyak 06/10/2014 #

if anyone wants to do a private swap with me message me please!!!

AlexWhatton 06/10/2014 #

I'd be happy to do an international swap with anyone! PM me!

dandabear 06/11/2014 #

I would love to do an international as well if anyone wants to message me. For those of you who are sad about not having this swap international...it is not hard to set up a swap of your own.

ladydy5 06/12/2014 #

Join Artistically Inclined Group. We have both USA only and International

penelopesamuel 06/13/2014 #

maybe a silly question...since most paper with writing on it is pretty flimsy, should I adhere the artwork to an ATC blank?

Kimmiepaca 06/14/2014 #

I have 2 questions about this (and any subsequent color/written page swaps). Is the rule to ONLY use red, or must that be the predominant color and snippets of other color are allowed? Also, can other paper be used, as long as it is mostly written pages, or should all paper used be book type pages?

It has come to my attention that my comment was "not very nice" etc..reading it now I have to admit does not sound exactly the way that I meant it, however I was just writing in response and I mean a quick response to someone above me..Im familar with.. and going with the flow..I wish I would not of said anything..considering..it has NOTHING to do with who has the best artist! I happen to know also..artist all over the world..including family..that are amazing! It all came out wrong and too serious! I am a very kind person..and if I sounded "mean"or offended anyone..I truely apologize!! Have a great day!

ladydy5 06/16/2014 #

Ebgroovy don't give it another thought. The written word without a tone is the hardest thing to read and can get confused in so many different ways. Believe m e I know!

Also, printed black and white or black printed on old book paper Then adhere it to something sturdier like an ATC card, a playing card or card stock . See photo! Must be just done in red as shown and you can outline drawing in black.

ebgroovy, I agree that there are not enough USA only swaps for those of us who can't afford international postage. I did a few international swaps and was very disappointed after spending a lot for postage and not always receiving anything in return. I would rather spend my money on stuff to make swaps with than postage!

ladydy5 07/ 8/2014 #

We have three that did not send. One notified me she will so I can except that. One is certainly flaking and I hope who got her will give her a one. If anyone is interested in angelling this swap to the swapper who sent but did not receive let me know.
