This swap is limited to the first 10, including myself USA players, in good standing. As soon as I get 10 players, I will close the swap. This will not change the mail by date for you players, it will in fact give you more time to work.
So "read UP", kinda like "listen up", but you now need to read and understand.
As the swap coordinator, I can see all of your addresses.
I will send out to 9 players, (I am the 10th), a mystery item, that I have found. They are all the same. This is a quirky upcycle item. It is cute, it is funny.
I will send each player 4 of these items. Each Player will need to make 3 atc cards. One to make a card to send back to me as a thank you for sending the item, cost of postage, blah blah blah. I will enclose a return address label for your convenience
Beside making one card for me. Each player will make and send one atc to 2 different partners. The reason you have 2 partners is that I think players will love seeing how 2 different players made this item into a card.
Now you have one extra Mystery item. Make a card for yourself or make an extra card. Or save it for a journal. The extra one is a JIC item. Sometimes I screw up and need an extra.
You will have a long time to complete these cards. This allows for mailing time to you from me, and time to create.
I cant angel this swap, as I dont have a source for more mystery images. I also can not help you out if you dont get the images from me, but I think I could maybe send a photo or scan to you.
Use this item on your card so that it is visible in some way, yes, you may color it or rip it, or paint it, but leave some of it to be seen somehow. Abstract, zentagles, collage, and hand drawn/painted cards are all acceptable.
Put some contact info on the back of your cards.
Make sure your cards are have even edges, and measure 2.5 x.3.5, with a sturdy backing.
Besides the cards, please add to your envelope one weird, or not weird mystery image or item to your partner, as a challenge to their artistic abilities. Nothing with dirt, trash or bio hazards please. It could be as simple as paper, or a weird embellishment,, an image from a magazine, or an upcycled tissue box, a new unused napkin, or tissue paper. Do you get the idea.? This is just an extra, they are not required to return a card or make anything from it, but I feel we have some room in the envelope so why not?!
When I mail the mystery images, I will have made my 2 cards for my partners, and they will be sealed/not visible. Do not open my cards until your work is complete, I dont want to influence your artwork, in any way. No cheating.
Next month I encourage another player to host this swap and to send a mystery image of their choosing to about 10 players.
I also would encourage an international player to feel free to host a swap like this.
