I have been hosting a SERIES of 9 swaps that will result in a complete "Rainbow Pocket Page," a 9 little pockets page containing all the colors of the rainbow. Periodically I have posted a swap for an ATC in a particular color of the rainbow: Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, light to mid-range Blue, dark/indigo Blue, Violet/Purple, plus gold. The 9 pocket page has been provided by the recipient of the swaps. We have one more formal swap to complete the series, and then each participant will have a rainbow of ATCs in 9 little pockets! (My apologies for the longer than normal wait for this final swap!)
For the ninth and final swap, the sender will create one (1) ATC for their partner that has a complete rainbow in the background and a haiku or quote about rainbows. You can draw, paint, collage, or otherwise depict these , including using images of figures or objects. This is an opportunity to play with different textures and materials. Emphasis here is on an artistic presentation of a rainbow in word and image.
The ATC should have a solid backing (like cereal box weight) and be sent in a protective sleeve of some kind. You can make your own sleeve out of your choice of material if you like, or place the ATC in the center of a card so it will not get abused in the mail. The sender will also include an ATC size (2-1/2" x 3-1/2") piece of paper for the back side. Please remember to add the name of the swap and your swap-bot name to the back of the ATC, and any additional info you would like.
Consistent with the intent of this group to have the focus on artistic presentation rather than an exchange of ephemera, nothing additional is required to be included in this swap. If you want to include an extra you may do so without fearing that you will be rated down for doing so. However, ratings are to be based on the ATC itself, not on any extras. While I doubt I will need to do so, I will angel all swaps after due diligence is taken to contact your partner should someone choose to be a flake.
Cheers and good will to all who have chosen to join me in this swap! Let's have some fun with the final pocket!
