Fashion Design ATC Swap - Due July 28th 2011

Swap Due Date - July 28
Signup/withdraw date - just communicate
Number of Cards - 3 for 3 ONLY
Number of participants - 40

Medium: Hand Drawn/HP or Mixed Media
no prints or digitals permitted

The inspiration for this swap is Fashion Design Sketches! Think McCall's pattern covers, Project Runway, Designer's notebooks...

Design your very own fashion line, on an ATC. Anything goes as far as medium. Cut out different patterns in fabric or magazines and paste them onto a sketch of a model. Sketch it out all hand drawn...whatever suits your fancy.

May I suggest, though, that the background be rather plain as with any fashion sketch you see, the focal point is the outfit, with the background normally remaining white or a small splash or tint of color on the background.

Example:

http://www.atcsforall.com/forum/gallery/images/5344/medium/1_Elegance_for_Tea_1910_s.jpg by bernie712

http://www.atcsforall.com/forum/gallery/images/1708/medium/2_image.jpg by certosinaE http://www.atcsforall.com/forum/gallery/images/4836/medium/1_2006_0711Image0005.JPG by Ms Bunni

Do a google search for "fashion sketch" and you'll see what I mean.

Nitty Gritty:

- All cards must be the standard 3.5” x 2.5”
- Cards should be fairly flat and able to comfortably fit in a sleeve.
- All cards should be sent in plastic sleeves.
- Please include real name AND username along with swap name on the back of all cards.
- Originals only (no digital prints)
- Please only send in cards you are proud of, something you would love to have in your collection.
- Please include username and swap name on all envelopes sent in.
- International participants – I will pay postage for first 4 international participants. After the 4 spots are full, you must be able to provide your own US return postage, or have a US citizen adopt you. Please include a self addressed envelope.
- US Participants – Please include a business sized, self addressed and stamped envelope.

A hostess card is not required but would be well cherished!

Please PM me for my address when your cards are complete and ready to mail.
PLEASE NOTE: I have moved. If you had my address previously, it is not the correct one.

Players - when you receive your cards for the swap, remember to leave iTrader for the Host (me) and Rep Points for the people you received cards from!

If you send in 6 cards, 3 WILL be returned to you as this is a 3:3 swap.

All cards are due in my hands by the due date. Late cards will be returned - no exceptions.
