My goal for 2017 is to create a piece of art every week, and what better way to do that than to create at least 1 ATC each week? By the end of the year, if you were to do this, you'd have the equivalent to an entire deck of cards! My plan is to run these swaps weekly if possible, and if there's enough interest. For January, I'll post all weeks at once. For the remaining months, I'll post two swaps every two weeks, with respective due dates. I'll also do my best to post themes way in advance for those who would like to try to swap in each round, so that you can work ahead.
For this swap we will be using a prompt and creating 1 ATC on sturdy backing to send to our partner. This should be sent in a protective sleeve, ATC sized envelope, or carefully placed in a greeting card so that it doesn't get damaged in the mail. The prompt for round 1 will be "snow." Use a snowy picture, texture to make a snowy background, snow flakes, snowmen, etc...anything that fits into a "Snow" theme is acceptable. Be sure to sign the back with your user ID and the name and round of the swap. No sticker swapping, no digital. Collage preferred, but if you are very talented with hand drawn ATC's that IS acceptable.
Round 1 - Snow
Round 2 - Lime green, burnt orange, turquoise (use these three colors in your design.)
Round 3 - Joy (use the word, or what epitomizes joy to you.)
Round 4 - Eyes (must use an eye creatively in your ATC design, as the focal point, or as a smaller part of the ATC.)
Round 5 - Heart/Love (use either a heart or love theme...anatomical heart designs are perfectly acceptable.)
Round 6 - Asian themed (Chinese New Year, this year is the year of the rooster...go with any Asian theme you like though!)
Round 7 - Texture (must create texture in some way, either through your background techniques, hardware, ribbons, paint, embossing, use of fabric, glass, etc.)
Round 8 - Senders choice
As with all swaps I host, I check ALL participants prior to assigning partners and reserve the right to ban anyone I feel will not follow through with the swap. I will ban ANYone who has recent 3's or 1's, and any one with excessive or unexplained poor ratings. I strive to keep the highest standards in my swaps, but I am also happy to allow newbies with VERY well filled out profiles. (If you need to ask if your profile is good enough, then you probably don't need to sign up...try the newbie helper groups, and forums then revisit later rounds of the swap.) If for any reason you are flaked on, please rate a 1, then shoot me a private message and I'll be more than happy to angel the swap for you.
The short of it: create a snow themed ATC on sturdy backing and mail securely to your partner. Be sure to sign the back of the ATC with your user name and swap name.
