Create an atc using two or more of the following artistic media: paint, ink, pencil, charcoal, water colors, collage, photography, any type of printmaking, stamping, assemblage, fabric art, etc.

Please include a quick note with your atc explaining the media and methods you used to make the card. Be creative. Have fun.

Disclaimer:: Art is a subjective term, interpreted differently by each of us. That being said... this swap is not for atc's in the scrapbooking craft style, made with packaged embellishments, or faux vintage images printed out from online sources. This swap is for original art atc's, hopefully with some hand drawn or painted elements.

Rate a 5 if your partner has sent you an atc that incorporates at least 2 different types of art media as described above. Do not base your rating on whether you love the card.

artist trading cards (atc) are required to be 2.5"x3.5", or 64x89mm. If you are unfamiliar with the art form please review this: http://www.cedarseed.com/air/atc.html

International swap. You must have a 4.9 rating, no recent no-sends, and no shady activity to participate. I reserve the right to ban anyone I feel will not follow through, including people who only have ratings based on online swaps. I will angel if there are any flakers.

If I knit the background and crochet embellishments that I later sew on, is it mixed media?

eveyinorbit 03/ 6/2011 #

pahasiga... I think that would just technically be a fabric art atc.

Using three different fiber techniques doesn't seem that different from using three different paper techniques; in my opinion it seems like it should count as mixed media...?

eveyinorbit 03/ 9/2011 #

I understand your point @emika For this swap though, I am counting fabric art as one type of media. How about instead of knitting the background, you use a non fabric type of media?

**For Ginggrl: Hi- I had an emergency come up that is going to cause this swap to be delayed. Only by a day or so. I sent a message to my partner, but just wanted to make sure she knows. So sorry! I have never been delayed before. -- xeno
