Abstract Art – Black, Gray, and White



Since all swaps/hosts have different guidelines and requests, I respectfully ask that you take a moment and read my guidelines for this swap. Thank you!

Abstracts are fantastic! The first three abstract swaps have been fantastic. Let's go with BLACK, GRAY, & WHITE for this one.

For this swap, please make Abstract ATCs in any medium with all three colors (black, gray, white) on them. You may use a SMALL amount of an additional accent color to make your card really pop if you like. Please be sure the extra color is just an accent and just a tiny part of the card.

Abstract art - "Art that does not attempt to represent external, recognizable reality but seeks to achieve its effect using shapes, forms, colors, and textures"

This swap as a no sign up swap. Your name will be added to the list when your cards arrive.

Cards that arrive on or before March 7 will be swapped out.
Cards that arrive after March 7 will be returned.


Host requests:
Please DO NOT send envelopes. (I will provide them)
Please DO send loose postage, not envelopes with postage already attached.
Please DO NOT use raised embellishments.
Thank you!!

Creative Plan:
Please submit only your best, most creative work.
Card size must be ATC standard - 2.5 x 3.5 inches.
All cards need to be sent in a plastic sleeves or some sort of protection in case your envelope is damaged on the way to me.
Originals only, no prints of previous work.
Flat embellishments only. What I am trying to avoid are the raised embellishments, gemstone type stick-ons, pointed things that can tear an envelope, heavy or thick pieces. Other flat types are ok.
Cards with raised embellishments will be returned. When in doubt, please ask!

Feel free to post your cards to the thread, we'd love to see them!
If you have questions about your cards, please send me a pm or ask in the thread.
PM me when you are ready for my address.

Awesome Returns:

All players: Please do not send envelopes. I will provide them. Please do send a label/paper with your name and address clearly printed on it.

US players: Please do send loose postage to cover your returns. An extra stamp is always appreciated to help cover international postage players, but it's not required. Please do NOT send envelopes with postage already attached.

International players: I'll cover the postage for your returns.


Gracious Gratitude:
Please make sure your real name, swap title, and screen name are on the back of your cards so others can leave you rep points.

Once you receive your return cards, please remember to leave iTrader for me and Rep points for the folks whose cards you were honored to receive. I will leave iTrader for each of you as soon as I receive your cards.

Thank you so much for participating in my swap!

Welcome to AFA TamJam. Or at least the swap end of it. PM the host and ask for her address after you do your cards. But you should always read the first post on the swap thread for all the rules.

Mouseit
12-26-2011, 08:43 PM
Hi TamJam... yep just do what Jennie said and PM the Hostess when your cards are ready and she will give you an address.

Hi Ya Jennie.. yep how could I miss all these new colours!

Ideas have been on the back burner, simmering away. A couple jumped out at me yesterday and I worked away on them. I'm not an expert by any stretch on what is abstract, but I think these qualify. At least, I hope so. Here they are. Oh, and I already have your address, mzspurslasso, from a previous swap, so I will be sending these off to you shortly.

Here are my cards, they will go out on Monday. The first three are surrealist automatic drawings (i.e. close your eyes and loosely draw randomly) by me and then I interpreted what I thought they looked like. The last is an angel image that I originally created in high school and still love to create.

mzspurslasso
01-07-2012, 10:53 PM
Love the abstracts and the angel is gorgeous!

Cherie, I love that one on the bottom that looks like teeth. Maybe its just me that sees teeth, I am a bit odd after all.

Thanks! LOL. It does look like teeth. My original design was something like a crown on the bottom 1/2 of the card. But it's abstract, so any interpretation goes :)

Me Too? I LOVE Abstract art on my ATC's, and black and white is a wonderful thing... especially when you can sneak in the tiniest itty bitty tidbit of colour to throw the eye!

This sounds like so much fun!

Ok, cards will be in Saturday's mail. (They look better in person as they didn't scan well.) I find abstracts so soothing and meditative. :)

02-10-2012, 06:42 PM
Great cards, Idolores - I particularly like the second one with all the interlocking circles. Hmm, perhaps I'll do something with circles for my next abstract swap...

Finally got my cards done for this one (not circles!) - quite minimal, for me at least, but I think they worked well. The background image is actually NOT abstract - it features a white leaf on a black background, but by only showing a small part of it, it appears abstract in the card, which I think is fun. The rest is just black or white torn card...

I have my cards ready to mail, but I'm second guessing myself...... I'm worried they are not abstract enough. Are there degrees of abstract art? Can there be recognizable images used in an abstract collage? I will post my carts on here when I get home tonight and let you be the judge. I'm really hesitating on sending them.........

My cards will be in the mail tomorrow (they were so much fun :jiggy:- I got to play with all the different greys in my Prismacolor pencils - LOTS of different tones) here's a sneak peek:

Here are my ATCs for this swap. I'm concerned they are not abstract enough. would you be disappointed to receive them? I really don't mind the truth. I want to know opnions before I send them off. So please, tell me what you really think. I can keep them and trade in my gallery if they are not right for this swap. Please give me your opinion. Thanks

I need to withdraw from this one- I have the cards finished and such, but I got caught up in some medical stuff (bad news- surgery on the 19th. icky!) and totally forgot to mail them. :(

On the Upside... If there is another black, white, and grey swap, I will have cards... :P

Bleah. I suck.

mzspurslasso
03-05-2012, 10:52 AM
So sorry about the medical issues! Hope things are better for you soon.

If you'd like, post your cards in your gallery or in this thread and let folks know you are open for 1:1 trades.

Sending good thoughts your way!
