Swap Due Date – March 8, 2012
No sign up/withdrawal deadline, but please communicate!
Number of Cards - 3 for 3
Number of Participants – Unlimited
Medium: Dictionary page and art media of choice



Welcome to the Mixed Media Dictionary Page Swap!

This swap is for mixed media ATCs that illustrate a definition from a dictionary.
It is inspired by a swap run a couple of years ago on this site which I loved. (Thanks, Elena!)

A piece of a dictionary page must be included in the card’s design. Any other media of your choice may be used to complete the card. Remember, the card design is intended to illustrate or interpret the dictionary word (s) chosen.


Swap Requirements ~
* All cards should be standard 3.5” x 2.5”
* This swap is 3 for 3 only. An extra card for the host is welcome, but completely optional.
* All cards must be original and each card must be different.
* Make sure cards are well-glued and sealed.
* Show off your talents. Send work that shows thought and care.
* Use only light embellishments and make sure your cards fit in plastic sleeves.

Mailing Information ~
* Include username, real name, your state/country and the swap name on the back of all cards - and put username and swap name on all envelopes sent.
* US Participants – Please include a clearly written SASE.
* International Participants - Please send a clearly-addressed envelope or mailing label and I will cover postage.

Please post in this thread when you are sending your cards out, that way I can keep track of the cards when they were mailed. Any late cards will be returned.

When you receive your returns, please leave I-Trader for your swap host and rep points for the artists of the cards you receive. People like to know where their little artworks find homes!

01-06-2012, 12:40 PM
Oh! I have to do this! I sure hate to cut up my dictionary, I use it all the time..Maybe I can use z words....I do not remember ever using that section!!!

mrubyjean
01-06-2012, 01:24 PM
Welcome, Nancy!

Don't cut up your only dictionary! A good photocopy is OK to use.
Or I would be happy to send you some pages...just let me know the letters you'd like.

I have four dictionaries in various stages of cut-up-ness :yes: I do work in a library after all and I am frequently scanning our book sale shelves in the lobby!

Joss

kitty2287
01-06-2012, 02:25 PM
As for your cut-up dictionary pages.......do you have any with the definition of any of these? Strip (not strip tease, but strip of paper); square (as in shape); pattern (as in patterned paper) ?
Or, can we print out from the internet?
Laurie

mrubyjean
01-06-2012, 05:36 PM
Welcome, kitty2287 and sophierock!

Laurie,
I have those pages and will send them to you!
I love it when it is the real dictionary pages...sometimes yellowed and a little crumbly...used and worn, etc. :wacko:

mrubyjean
01-06-2012, 05:38 PM
Keep lurking, Joss...you know I'd love to have you join!

Martha, I dreamed about this swap last night....! I was at work(I'm retired!) and was working on art. One of the Central Supply gals(hospital) had an old dictionary. I asked her if I could borrow it and she said that it was very old and that the cover contained some type of acid that would burn my hands and to please wash my hands after touching it! Crazy, huh!!

princess06
01-08-2012, 12:27 PM
This sounds like fun..., I'll play along, please sign me up. I'm currently exploring the medium of mixed media, as it's been awhile since I've used it in my art.

What is it about dreams that so many of them go back to our previous jobs? I also worked in a hospital (Medical Records) and I find my self back in that hospital in many of my dreams!

lilbad
01-08-2012, 05:52 PM
So true...I have work dreams every week. We went to the swap meet here in Lake Havasu(vacationing here) and I tried hard to find an old dictionary without luck. Will check out St. Vinnies tomorrow.

LilacDragn
01-09-2012, 10:44 AM

Oh dear, after reading this thread last evening, I went to the bookcase and check my Dictionaries. I felt this pain in my chest area when I think of cutting out part of the page!:shocked: Let me lurk for a while and see if I can come to my senses and part with a page or two! Am I the only one who felt this way or are there some out there who just couldn't cut pages from books?!:embarrassed::err::sad::cry:

ArtDuJunque
01-10-2012, 11:34 PM
I bought an old dictionary just for the purpose of snip snipping it!

HHC
01-11-2012, 02:38 AM
Oh Martha, I love old dictionary pages. Sign me up, please. :D

And Rita, I can send you some already cut out pages. I have four I've acquired from the free book shelves at the library... already beat up books so I don't feel guilty.

mrubyjean
01-11-2012, 03:11 AM
With pleasure, Helen...welcome!
And thanks for offering miloccpep some already cut-out pages.

I also have cut-up dictionaries as well...and would be happy to supply pages to folks who don't want to cut up dictionaries they actually use to look up words!

miloccpep
01-11-2012, 04:10 AM
Wow! Such generous follks here in AFA! Okay then, since I am going to get a few pages of dictionary, sign me up Martha!
Thank you Helen and Martha too! You both have my addy already.

lilbad
01-11-2012, 11:12 AM
After much, much searching in Lake Havasu(vacation), found an old dictionary that I could with a clear conscience tear apart. I so wanted to find a French one, but no luck. Ah, nothing like the hunt!!

mrubyjean
01-11-2012, 11:21 AM
Terrific, miloccpep...you're in...welcome!

JBob, welcome to the swap...and the site!

Martha, I'm going to lurk for now...have this thread on my subscription list. I haven't been making ATCs lately (have a grandbaby coming and am concentrating on art for him and his parents), but I might just do this as a break in the routine! I appreciate the notification so much, though!

Marilou, if you still have some spare dictionary pages, I'd be very interested! I have a dutch-french dictionary but it's a translation dictionary not a uhm.. whats the name for the other type of dictionary heh? I do have a whole range of other dictionaries available BUT those are indeed to look up stuff, not to cut into pieces (and most all but my sisters Dikke van Dale are translation dictionaries as well)
Is there anything I can mail you in return?


Welcome, craftyvox! :yes:
yay!

Good to see you lurking, CAMeo...let me know if you like to join!

Lil, here in Seattle we have about 2" so far...enough to close the schools and the dentist office...but the libraries are open and I'm expected to go to work!

HHC

Bummer, Martha! We have a snow day, 9 inches here, and Julie has 15 and counting.

Are you fairly close to your library?

Bummer, Martha! We have a snow day, 9 inches here, and Julie has 15 and counting.

Are you fairly close to your library?

About 20 minute drive, but no route without a BIG hill!
Good news, though, we were given the option taking a vacation day...and that is what I did when I found out the libraries were opening at 12 and closing at 3. It would probably take me longer to get there and get home than when I would be working! About 4" here now.

HHC
01-18-2012, 05:37 PM
Yay for a snow day Martha!

I'm using my snow day to try to figure out some very clever cards. So far, success has eluded me... LOL!

Hi mrubyjean:

I've been away for a long time and am longing to do something fun. I think this fits perfectly, may I play? :-)

bastcrystal
01-21-2012, 02:26 AM
This sounds like so much fun - I bought a Russian dictionary at the last Library book sale (so now I have Chinese and Russian - both languages look more like drawings than writing). I HAVE to join now, pl-e-e-e-e-e-ase?

Donna the Russian and Chinese dictionaries sound cool, especially if you collage something to let us know which word you chose. :-)

bastcrystal
01-21-2012, 02:31 AM
Oh dear, after reading this thread last evening, I went to the bookcase and check my Dictionaries. I felt this pain in my chest area when I think of cutting out part of the page!:shocked: Let me lurk for a while and see if I can come to my senses and part with a page or two! Am I the only one who felt this way or are there some out there who just couldn't cut pages from books?!:embarrassed::err::sad::cry:

I have a very hard time cutting out books as well. I bought a 1910 student work book,(I can't remember what they are called) and it was so neat I couldn't cut it up. The student had drawn and made comments in the book and it is so cool.

Maybe one day I will be able to break down and cut out some pages. They would make great ATCs.

Could you withdraw me please.....inspiration for this in not coming. thanks.

We called our son in Issaquah a couple days ago. He was supposed to be working at home but there was no power. and the girls were home as there was no school. I guess there was lots of time for reading.

mrubyjean
01-21-2012, 01:53 PM
Sure, Nancy...sorry to see you go!

Yes, it was quite a storm for our area. I hope the power is back soon to the rest of the county (and your son's family!)...we were lucky in Seattle not to have lost power.

I was confused by your card...until I showed it to my partner, a huge sci-fi fan, who instantly said "spice" was a reference to Dune because of the really blue eyes!
Is this right? I'm just not geeky enough :geek:...

Thanks, Nancy!


Am I allowed to post the pictures of the cards I make for this swap on-line? They will be the first cards I ever make and ever swap. Have to start somewhere...

JBob ~ You can post your pictures in your gallery, but can't post them in the thread until you have at least 15 total posts.
However, I would be happy to link them to this thread once you post them in your gallery...if you want.
Would love to have a sneak peek of your work!:yes:
