4/25 ETA: Since it's just me and @bigmamabird doing this, we'll swap 2 NB style ATCs to each other.

Create 2 mixed media collage ATCs - one for each partner - in the style of Nick Bantock. If you're not familiar with his work, much of it is composed of old postage, maps and other ephemeral remnants that give his pieces an Old World, historical artifact sort of look.

Standard Not-So-Fine Print:

In keeping with the overall group style, your ATCs need to be mixed media collage -- a collage of paper or other elements (plastic, fabric, lace, etc) with artistic mediums added (acrylic paint, watercolor, ink sprays, markers, pencils, pastels, etc). ATCs are 2.5" x 3.5" in size - no more, no less - and created on sturdy stock.

On the back of your ATCs, add your signature and username along with the group name, USA ATC Junkies. Any other info you wish to include is totally up to you. Send your ATCs in protective sleeves of some sort inside note cards or folded pieces of cardstock for their own protection.

All consideration has been/will be taken to see that this swap sets sail successfully and is enjoyable for all parties aboard. If you have any issues or concerns, please PM me.

Oh my gosh, his faux mail art (4x6) cost 450$ a pop!
