Swap:Optical Illusions
Due-date:april 15th.
Sent in:14 days before ending the swap.(I am living in The Netherlands)
How many cards: 3/3
How many players: 20

SWAPTHEME: Optical Illusions.


Here are some sites to give you an idea::idea:

The idea is to use this idea to create an atc. And with this I mean more than just print a nice picture and glue this to an atc:-).
If you add embellishments, make certain that they are flat (the thickness of a brad is okay). Please do not use those naked women. This swap should be nice and pleasant. I want my children to be able to look at the atc's.:)

-Please explain at the back of the atc what the illusion is. Not everybody will see it
straight away and some explanation might help.
-Don't forget to mention your user name on the atc. This makes it easier for
everybody when they give reps.
-If possible please include an euro for return postage.
-If you have to drop out of this swap, please let me know as quickly as possible. A
person of the waiting list will be happy to play.
If you have questions, please do not hesitate to ask.
PM me for my adress.
Have fun with this swap!

"I have never "pimped an illusion:.
What does that mean?:twitcy:

While I wait for an explanation, I am working on my cards.
Please sign me up.
Please also send me your addy.

Hi Vicky,
I mean that you can print an image from an illusion from internet( from one of the sites in my info).
So you can pimp your atc around that illusion:):)
Maybe as a label on your atc.
Maybe with an embellishment or perhaps painting in the same theme as the illusion.
Maybe you have an idea now??
I hope so.

I have my cards done.
May I have your address, please.

03-15-2011, 05:19 AM
O that's great.
I have given you my adress in a pm.
I am looking forward:)

If my eyes can see straight to type I would like to join please. (this is your fault alisl - I have just been browsing those websites and trying to make my eyes 'see' everything mentioned) I must go and lie down now :v_spin: :goofy: :spinny:

I know what you mean!
Find three of this - I can only find two. :unsure:
Then I find the 3rd, and lose the first one.:twitcy:
These optical illusions are a challenge.

The ones that change colors are fun.
I remember most of them from grade school science class, but maybe I just had a different science teacher??:twitcy:

03-17-2011, 06:10 AM
Haha Donnacr,
I am so sorry:)
And yes if you see sometimes too long then it looks you dizzy!

I do not really know what you mean but there are really nice in between.
You can try to make something yourself, but you can also use the picture from the internet and handle like that on your ATC.
There are many puzzles to illusies.Van optical stripes and moving images.
The latter is difficult to capture on your art work:)

But I will put youadd the list.
Have Fun.

And Vicky you are remember the early years.
I like it:):)

alisl - I have just read that you want to swap on the 10th - the due date isn't until the 15th. My cards won't reach you by the 10th but they should be there by the 15th as I mailed them today (they should be in my Gallery tonight). If they arrive too late feel free to keep them for yourself as a gift - I had a lot of fun making them.

04-04-2011, 12:33 PM
Oh...I am so sorry, it's a mistake:)
Ofcorse it's the 15th!!!
So I have the cards still on time...

LOVE your cards, Donnacr.
The parallel horizontal lines is my favorite.
I tried to make that one, but gave up when my eyes kept crossing.
KUDOS on your perseverence.

04-07-2011, 09:23 AM
thanks vicki - even though I made the cards, I still couldn't tell my eyes that what they were telling my brain WASN'T true :wacko: (I also went a little cross-eyed making that card - I had to concentrate on lining up the edges and not look at the pattern

04-09-2011, 10:00 AM

This was a fun swap.

I agree with donnacr that it is a pity more people didn't think they could join - But I totally understand.:)

I didn't think I should/could join, and after my first two failures, I was positive I couldn't participate.:no:

But thanks to alisl, and all the tips on how to add an illusion to a card, I felt encouraged.
Thank you, alisl, for the encouragement and for a FAB swap.
