I discovered the ALTERED ROLODEX! (Aug 2011) ...Check out the groups...A.R.T. ALTERED ROLODEX TRADERS (small 3x4" cards with notches 6/8" apart) & A-Z ALTERED ROLODEX GROUP (Larger 3x5"cards with notches 1 1/4" apart) And check out the pic of an awesome one in the Aug. 17,2011 comments section of my profile!
THEY ARE AN AWESOME, COMPACT WAY TO COLLECT & DISPLAY ART!
Altered Rolo Cards are made out of heavier Cardstock than the ones U buy. Just use those as patterns to cut out your own and embellish! The great thing about rolos is you can extend ur design or embellishments up to an inch above the top! They are so much fun & they give u freedom to create! ;-)
SO, THINK OUT OF THE ATC BOX! Create Rolos ;-)
NOTE TO MY SWAP PARTNERS: I prefer my cards with the notches on the bottom for the FRONT OF THE CARD...And the BACK OF THE CARD with the notches on the top
Just WANNA throw this out there for everyones info...since we all don't really KNOW each other...so everyone will know this about me. And I wouldn't want anyone to avoid a swap thinking I wouldn't want their creations. Even though I do sell paintings and murals, I luv it when I get someone's 1st painting!!! I have gotten several 1st attempts at paintings, ATCs & Rolos...and I have some framed and hanging right next to professional museum quality artwork in my home! I have taught children & Disabled Veteran's art classes (Many of these big ole men that have never done any art in their life, & it is so great to put a brush in their hand and see them get lost in the creativity and the canvas!)You would be so surprised to see what they do, & I encourage them to enter the national VA Art Competition (And many have won!) & i LUV TO get their work when I can. I am not one to be picky about partners and just wanted to throw that out here so u all will get to know me better ;-)
