New creative swap - August ATCs: I am . . .

Creative Swaps, Monthly ATC (Artist Trading Card) Swap
for August 2011 ~ I am . . .
  • 3 for 3 August ATC Swap! You will make 3 ATCs out of paper or fabric, or use both. They may be identical ATCs or all different from each other. You will receive 3 ATCs in return.
  • The August 2011 ATC swap theme is: I am . . . Fill in with a word of your choice and please note this on the back of your ATC.
  • I brainstormed this idea and came up with a number of possibilities that I might try. I am . . . strong, creative, I am thinking, I am happy . . . dancing . . . . frazzled . . . . angry, beautiful . . . in love . . . you can go so many different ways with this prompt, just be creative! Your ATCs can use the same word, or use a different word for each ATC.
  • You may consider using a photograph or drawing of yourself in some way, but that is definitely not a requirement. Use whatever media you like to illustrate your word and your feelings in this small space.
  • All ATCs are due IN my Mailbox no later than September 3rd. This is a firm deadline. I will sadly return any late swaps to the sender and whatever ATCs are in my hands on September 3rd is what I will swap. Absolutely no exception to this rule, so mail early.
  • TWO sets of 3 ATCs is the maximum you can submit.
  • You have to register for each set, $7.00 per set. Register twice, or mark a quantity of 2 on the registration page of creative swaps blog, when sending in 2 sets of 3 ATCs.

When your payment is received you will receive an automatic email confirmation from 'e-junkie' for your swap registration with a link to a pdf file you need for the swap with complete information. Please make sure your PayPal email is correct or you will not receive important swap information vital to your participation! Doing this is your responsibility. If the email you have listed with PayPal is not the best one for me to correspond to, please send me your preferred email.

As the swaps arrive, I will scan your ATCs and post them on the creative swaps blog.
