Finally, A New Swap!

The rules are different for this swap,
and there are a lot of them,
so please read carefully.
 
"The Fabric Of Nature"
ATC Swap
 
This will be a 12-4-12 swap.
 
Only the first 11 to sign up will be guaranteed a spot,
others will be wait listed.
 
ATCs are DUE in my hands no later than MAY 9TH,
that is 6 weeks from today.
 
Domestic shipping is $6.00,
as I will be using small flat rate boxes to return the swaps.
I will only accept Paypal or cash,
NO CHECKS.
 
International swappers are welcome,
but word of warning,
International shipping from the US has doubled
and in some cases tripled since last year.
Payment will be made through Paypal only.
 
 
Now that the administrative duty is finished,
a little about the ATCs:
 
The standard base measurement of ATCs must be
2.5 x 3.5 inches,
little bits dangling off the edges are acceptable.
 
NO PAPER is to be used in this swap.
Fabric, felt, lace, basically any textiles are acceptable.
Images must be printed on fabric.
 
You may use color,
but I ask that you keep colors soft, faded, vintage-like.
 
Your 12 ATCs do not have to be the same,
but it is perfectly fine if they are.
 
Interpret the nature theme however you like,
land, sea. air,
animal, vegetable, mineral...
 
ALWAYS do your BEST work,
and remember to autograph the reverse side.
 
 
Finally,
once you receive your swap returns,
do something with them and share.
Suggestions:
create a collage,
garland,
mini fabric book,
whatever.
Send me a photo of your completed piece,
and I will create a post sharing all of your wonderful ideas.
 
 
If I have left anything out, or something is unclear,
 simply leave a comment and I will answer it in the comments' section.
 
Sign-up by leaving a comment here and
feel free to grab my button to help spread the word.
 
enJOY Your Blessings,
Kimberly

Amy B said...

YES! Please sign me up. My heart did a little leap when I saw your post and the nature-driven theme. I know I'm blogless (or my blog is blank), but I'll post to Flickr and MAYBE this will be the swap that gets me to actually blog! Kimberly, your ATC swaps are top-notch. - Amy Bauer

MISS PEACH ~(^.^)~ said...

can we stamp an image on the fabric?
I would love to be a part of this swap Kim....
XOXO Karla

Kimberly at ArtJoyStuff said...

Okay ladies, we still have room for 4 more!

Amy mentioned not having a blog, that should never stop anyone from joining in, all are welcome!

Karla had a great question about stamping on fabric, great idea and totally acceptable for this swap!

I love that a couple of you have mentioned "stepping out of your zone." that was the idea;-)

enJOY a lovely night my friends,
Kimberly
