Abstract Torn Paper Only-Due Friday April 8th
Number of cards 3/3
Media- paper only
Number of players unlimited BUT sign up by March 26

This swap is similar to my first Torn Paper Only Swap except that all your cards will be abstract. Examples can be found in that swap : #70, asharnaenae, #104 RaineyDay, #192 WilOpioOguta, and #206 Stellaluna.

The only medium that you will use is paper---NO pens, paint, stickers, embellishments. You are still free to use any kind of paper. Adhere your paper shapes onto an *** backing and put your name, user name, location, date on the back. Do put your cards into plastic sleeves, even if you use a pocket page.

If you sign up but don't communicate or send cards, you will receive neutral iTrader.
There will be no wait list.

Mailing- if possible, use long-sized (business envelopes) for sending and for your return self-addressed (no little stickers), stamped envelope.

US players: attach at least a 44 cent stamp
International players- send an address label. I will provide envelopes and postage.


dictionary definition of ABSTRACT expressing a quality without reference to an actual person or thing that possesses it OR having little or no pictorial representation

Everybody, remember to tear ALL your edges. Besides me being a nitpicking host, the cards really look better if ALL the edges of paper are torn.

NancyL

We are having family company through part of Tuesday so I cannot focus totally on this swap or my other ones. Mostly I am in a state of exhaustion. We are either going places( and the artritic legs protest) or we stay home and the kids---3 and 5---go, go ,go! No wonder only younger people have kids.

I feverishly tore and glued all evening - hope it's ok to glue and seal the cards with the same product. I used Mod Podge - my fingers are crossed, and stuck together too. haha If all's good please sign me up and send me your address - I'll post my cards tomorrow when they are done drying.
Thanks for hosting!

NancyL
03-03-2011, 12:40 PM
Its better in this swap to use a good adhesive rather than a sealant. One of the joys of torn paper is being able to feel the edges and textures of the papers. I think that is lost with a sealant.
I sent you a PM but I've changed my mind. Its now up to players to decide whether they want to seal their cards.

Here are my cards for this swap - plus one for the gallery. I carefully tore various bits and pieces of paper, played around with them, glued them down - and then, almost by automatic habit - I trimmed all the overhanging edges with scissors instead of downsizing them by tearing (or not making them overhang in the first place) - but at least that was only one card - the other four were ok!

The black card with pink, turquoise and purple is all made from mulberry paper scraps from the other cards. I'll send them out tomorrow.

Big toe, just tear up some pieces of paper...see how they look together. Play around with paper for a bit. some papers are easy to tear. Origami paper is easy. Mulberry paper not.
Try making skinny pieces. Play first, then figure out what you are actually making and assembling.
I find tearing paper is very relaxing.

I know what you mean - I usually have a real vision of what my card is going to look like but if your doing an abstract it's a little harder. But this is what I do when I'm going to do somethig abstract.

I take my ATC background, pick out some papers that I think look good together - either coordinate or contrast and start tearing, I lay the pieces out on the background and fuss around a bit then I have an ATC template I made (it's a 5 x 7 piece of cardstock with an ATC size opening in the middle) which I lay over my "creation" to see what is goint to be cut off in the end so it gives me a wonderful idea how the card is going to look. After I get something I like I start gluing away.

Hi, all -

Here are my ATCs, ready to be mailed! It was much more challenging that I thought it would be. The tearing of paper was easy to remember, but I kept wanting to add something to the ATCs that weren't torn paper! A true test of discipline on my part! I'll wait until I'm formally accepted to the swap before I mail them, but I'm ready!! Thanks - :jiggy:

NancyL
03-06-2011, 12:46 PM
Plastic sleeves are the best protection and artist info on the card back can easily be read without having to remove the card. ( I do remove the sleeves once I receive a card as I like to touch/feel the front.) When you tape together cards in sleeves, the tape comes off easily.
Very important to tape cards together or put in a holder. Loose cards dance enroute and try to break through the envelope. Sometimes loose cards destroy an envelope and don't arrive.

<<Examples can be found in that swap : #70, asharnaenae, #104 RaineyDay, #192 WilOpioOguta, and #206 Stellaluna.>>

I looked at the archive the other day (before signing up, lurking at all the swaps goin' round) and couldn't find it. I just looked now and couldn't find it, and I went all the way back to February 2010. I am not above admitting that my brain is in weekend mode, so could you give me an approximate date range when that swap occurred?

@NancyL - I was totally inspired tonight. My first AFA ATCs are finished! Thanks for mentioning texture. It was a reminder to me to pay attention to that. This swap ignited the heart of a scrapbooker who finally had a legit excuse to play with all the "special" paper in her stash. I dug through my scraps--even the scraps too small to be called scraps but held onto anyway--and found a delightful assortment I forgot I had! I'll post pics once my cards arrive; by then I should figure out how that works here. Please send me your address and I'll have these mailed to you this week. Thanks!

Thanks, ICraft! I really just used a bunch of scrap papers I had in my "stash" and created serendipity paper. That just means I pasted paper all over a large watercolor sheet until it was full - I then turned it over (so I couldn't see) and cut out the ATCs. I was really happy with the results. Thanks again!

the worst that happened to me was being woken by 3:15 am. My whole body protested all day! My husband heard the sirens about 2:30 am. this time I slept through. We live on 20th Avenue and the tsunami zone in our subdivision is down by 5th Avenue. No danger, just a lot of tv and computer drama.
Our side of the island sustained very liittle damage. the other side had massive flooding on their main tourist road and into some buildings.

My cards are in my Gallery and in the mail. I found this swap really hard to make cards that I was happy with - obviously out of my comfort zone. Thanks for stretching me nancyL

Yes, I've been surprised how challenging this has been for many. I often do abstract things as I also can't draw worth beans.
Some of the cards are a lot less abstract than I would have done, but I remind myself that people have different visions of abstract as well as different comfort levels for abstract.

Here're mine. They'll be in the mail tomarrow. I hope they're okay. I love abstract and this turned out to be a bigger challenge than I expected.

Haven't been to the post office since the 25th. We're conserving gas; its over $4 here.
Either tomorrow or Wed, we're going into town.
If you wait several days between mail pick ups, you always have something.

@trini70 - Fun cards! I love earth tones, the 2nd one is so colorful and the third reminds me of the the ocean.

finally picked up mail again. You get a lot when you go with 5 days inbetween!

anyway, cards arrived---from mzspurslasso (thanks for the papers as well as a host card); teale (thanks for the hsot card and extra postage), SOTO (thanks for a host card) and BarbaraF (sending you a PM.)
Not too many left to come...previous players know that I do swap out on time but if ALL the cards come in before the due date, I will swap out early.

Okay, cards from Mrs. Ragbrutty arrive...thanks for the extra card and the well concealed dollar!.....from JenCreates...thanks for the extra card and from Trini70.
just one more set to come.....and then I will swap out....unless the cards come late (alas) and then I will still swap out on time.
But since they are in the mail system, I believe they will be on time.

Okay.....cards are in their new envelopes and will be mailed tomorrow, April 8th!

Remember to give rep (you rock) points to each player from whom you receive cards and iTrader to me.
Also try to note in this thread whose cards you received because people like to know where their cards got to.

All the cards except for those for Mrs Ragbrutty ( I haVE no mailing address) went out today.

Our main computer is in the shop...alas. I do have access to an unfamiliar laptop. I will check in daily. I did do all my iTraders for this swap.

YAY! I got my cards! After an icky-stick-in-the-arm dr appt, here was sunshine to brighten my sunshiney day. Yes, Spring has reached SE Michigan. At least for today.

@Mace, I received your Abstract Torn paper with the detective. Yay! I so liked that one of yours.
@mtpaperplayer, I received Flower Play. I love the texture that even the edges are torn!
@Crystallized - I received Sunshine and your bouquet of flowers. Just what I needed!

Thank you, thank you wonderful hostess NancyL! You reminded me how fun it is to play with paper. As a scrapbooker, you'd think I'd get it. Right. I may just have to do more of these...!

I was amazed to have 13 Pms when I came on the computer! I htink only 10 were iTrader for this swap... but they did arrive quickly.
Yes, our computer is home. I guess I am glad that I was sort of forced to use the laptop, cause otherwise I was never going to. But I like a key board where your fingers know where everything is and the symbols on the keys aren't teeny tieny and the keys stick up.
