This swap will be a timed challenge. The goal is to create a miniature work of art, also known as an ATC, in the allotted time. This means set your timer, and do not go over the allotted time in making your ATC. It's okay if you don't finish, though the goal is to try to finish. It also means that, at least on this first one, you probably won't be able to let your layers dry before adding additional layers, assuming you want layers.


This means you will need to have all of your supplies ready Beforehand, including your blank ATC base. I also recommend reading your partners profile beforehand. If someone is terrified of spiders, please don't draw them a spider....just common sense.

7 minutes is quick. You may only have time to ink or paint your ATC, and then add a silhouette, or rubber stamp image, and add a text or an outlined border. Or you may only have time to, let's say, paint a flower, whereas if you had more time you could paint a field of flowers. These are just examples, you can do whatever you wish, in any art medium, but simple is what I'm thinking as you only have 7 minutes to create it. I plan to offer three of these timed ATC swaps.

Your Atc's may be oriented in any direction. This swap is a time challenge, so please do not send an ATC that you have already created or use an ATC that you have already started. Start a new ATC for this challenge. Art doesn't have to be really involved to make an impact. Please include your artist info on your ATC's. And please include your user info and swap name, in your envelope somewhere. Decorate your envelope in some way. Sticky embellishments are fine, stickers are not.

Have fun.
