This is a new ATC series for altered text/print using a specific color each time.

Using a piece of paper from a book, magazine, pamphlet, etc, you'll make a random phrase from various words in the text.

It's up to you how you choose to make your phrase visible, as long as you use the color chosen for the specific swap in the series.

Be as creative as you'd like!

The only requirements are standard ATC size requirements of 2.5 x 3.5.

Newbies with fully fleshed out profiles and that have at least 5 completed AND rated mail swaps under their belts are invited to join. However, please be forewarned that flakers will NOT be tolerated.

Come on, we all like getting something special in the mail!! It's only a kind, simple act to reciprocate, and it doesn't require a lot of effort to do so. Don't flake!

You'll be sending 1 ATC to 1 partner. Have fun!

The image above is done by Tom Phillips and you can visit http://humument.com/gallery/index.html for more examples of altered text.

Is it OK to use a carbon copy of a book? I won't cut up any of my books, and we don't get so many English magazines.

Polymath 07/ 9/2010 #

Sure, that's fine. It just needs to be text in some form.

Any suggestions on making the words visible - other than the obvious - just not painting over them? Covering them with something that doesn't absorb color? I have never done this before - but am anxious to try!

This is a really neat idea and I love the cards you linked to.

The site you directed us to is awesome - I think I have a clue, however would like to verify - the majority of the card is red (for this swap) - the text will be in whatever color will stand out and will say something that makes sense to me or someone!! lol - Do I have it? Or am I missing a piece? Looks interesting!

Wow, I LOVE ATC swaps that offer a new technique challenge! I have this bookmarked and when it gets a bit closer I will try and join, it looks like the sort of thing that would push me to try something new, thanks!

Rockin! Altered Text ATCs have and will always be some of my favorites to do. I've been wanting to host one of these for months now. I'm eager to do all the colors!

This is awesome! I really like the ATC in the picture, too.

This looks like such a great swap. I'm still a newbie but I will join you one day :)

I actually have this book and it's really intriguing to look at and read.
