Here is a swap for people who would like be pushed out of their ATC comfort zone. Please only join this swap if you are okay with pushing someone, and being pushed yourself.
You will be making one ATC for one partner. When partners are assigned, please look at who will be sending to you (you can see who will send to you by clicking the "Rate your partners and coordinator" link). This is the person that you will push. Take a look at their profile and see what they're into, what techniques they prefer, what themes they like. Then send them a PM (private message) here on swap-bot with three or more "pushes". These pushes can be a theme, a technique, or any idea that you think will push them outside their comfort zone and force them to create an ATC which will be a new experience for them.
Please don't push techniques that require a lot of new technology or gadgetry. Asking your partner to go buy a paintbrush is acceptable; asking them to buy a sewing machine is not. Also, if someone states on their profile that so-and-so theme is offensive to them, or that they simply hate it, don't push that. The point is to give them new ATC ideas that will be new, challenging, difficult, but doable.
After you've received the PM from your partner, use one of their pushes as inspiration to make your ATC. You don't have to use all three, but you must use at least one of them. Usual ATCs rules apply: ATCs must be properly sized - 2 Â½ X 3 Â½ inches or 63 mm X 89 mm. If you end up trying a new technique and your first attempt is awful, then either do it again or try something different. Send good work - send something that you would be thrilled to receive.
No newbies on this one, sorry. You must have at least 30 completed swaps which are type 2 or 3.
The deadline for signing up will be Friday, June 3rd. Partners will be assigned Saturday morning. You should check your partner and send out your PM before the next Friday, June 10th. That gives your partner 10 days more to complete the ATC.
I hope I've explained everything clearly, but if not, please question below, or PM me.
