New Art Swap: Ocean/Sunset ATCs

My Sunset and Ocean ATC Samples

for our upcoming swap 4/23/16

A new swap has been announced on my Creative Swaps Blog -

Ocean/Sunset ATCs!

I enjoyed hosting the collage swap that we recently finished up and decided to follow it with a color based ATC swap. ATCs = Artist Trading Cards. They are sized 3.5” x 2.5” – or 64 x 89mm – approximately the size of baseball trading cards. Here is my swap call: 

Create 6 Artist Trading Cards (3.5” x 2.5”) using any medium and the colors of the Ocean: blues, greens, grey & white for example – or Sunset colors: pinks, orange, red, yellow, purples etc. One “family” of colors per card, Ocean OR Sunset. You can create your ATCs with sunset colors or with ocean colors and even do some of each if you like, but do not mix the colors together on your ATC. The base must be made of: cardstock, canvas, fabric, watercolor paper or matte board –something sturdy. You may add to this: watercolors, acrylic paint, rubber stamping, pastels, pencils, markers, gelli printing, inks, collage, photography, paper, small but not too dimensional items, or fabric. They can be all fabric if you wish.

You must register in order to participate. Registration is $10.00. This fee is for all participants (International & USA) and includes return postage for your swaps, plus access to a private lesson I’ve just added to my website for swap participants only. After you successfully register for the swap via PayPal, I will confirm your registration within 24 hours, emailing you the swap instructions & the link and the password for the private lesson that shares step by step how I made the ATCs above. They are there for inspiration & you are free to work as you wish within the confines stated above. 

Payment for this swap can ONLY be made through PayPal and you can find the PayPal Button on the Creative Swaps Registration Page. Swap Registration will be limited . . . and I reserve the right to close registration for this swap at any time.

After the swap concludes on April 23rd, I will swap out all of the entries and mail you 6 ATCs created by other artists in the swap. Yippee! PLEASE NOTE: Late entries will not be included in the swap – MAIL EARLY!  I hope to see you Register for this swap! As the ATCs come in, I will share them on the creative swaps blog for inspiration.  

If you have any questions please contact me here. Yours creatively, Lenna
