The ATC x4 cards were mailed out on Monday afternoon. This was the biggest art swap thus far, with 152 people signing up. I had so much mail, my tiny P.O. Box was full and a clerk had to bring me a big bin full of envelopes.
The assignment was to create 4 ATCs on a single card that would be exchanged.
Here’s what my dining room table looks like for longer than a week.
It’s a good thing I had helpers to assist me addressing envelopes!
Of course, the art takes center stage.
Of course I created several of my own:
Many of the envelopes I received we quite. impressive too. I have to create a project. for all the beautiful extras that come along with the art in the mail.
One last photo of a pile of lovely cards. Well done, everyone!!
Everyone was so creative! Love seeing so many of them- it lets you see the possibilities to try something new!
I have had non-stop company so this week I intend to look at my ATCs closely and truly enjoy them. With this being my first time doing this swap, may I please inquire of folks what they will do with their trade cards?
Hi Beth, So far everyone I have heard from has decided to keep them as is and not cut them up. Let us know if you decide to cut yours 😉
These are all so beautiful!!! Such lovely cards. Many talented folks out there!!
I totally agree! Lots of creative people out there 😉
Hi,everyone , I absolutely love all the creative efforts,it is really inspiring to look at gives me encouragement to continue making collages in all your formats.I have to work on not over thinking as I find this stops me from creating. Again ,love all creativity
I’m so glad you’ve gotten some great ideas and inspiration, Judith! ❤️
Is there going to be another card swap of some sort and if so, how do I get involved? I just love all the creativity and inspiration!
Thank you so much for posting!
I’m just about to announce a new art exchange now, Linda. You should hear about it shortly!
Wonderful! Thank you so much!
This may sound dumb but how does a card swap work exactly? What is the process once you complete your project?
Hi LaVonda, What happens is that after the theme is decided, I open the window of time when you can send in your art to me. I exchange everything and then mail out different art to everyone.
