Torn Paper Flowers



Please read ALL the guidelines for this swap at least a couple of times before sending in your cards. Thanks!!!

I am crazy about NancyL’s Torn Paper swaps! Love ‘em! (be sure to check out her Abstract Torn Paper swap going on now!) They have inspired me to do a torn paper swap of my own. (with NancyL’s encouragement) So, put down your scissors, grab some adhesive & paper, wake your muse up, and join us in making some super-fabulous cards!

For this swap, please make Torn Paper Flowers. Each card must have one or more torn paper flowers on it. It can be a large flower, a field of flowers, a bouquet…you name it, so long as the main focus is the torn paper flower(s).
What is a torn paper flower? Basically, it’s a collage of a flower made from paper you tear instead of cut.


Do not use scissors for this swap.

Tear your paper for the whole card. Yep…leave the uneven sides and jagged edges like they are. Step outside your comfort zone, give your muse a permission slip to run wild, and see what beautiful flower cards you can create using only this technique.

Please really put some effort into your cards. See how much detail you can add with just the paper. Challenge yourself to go further than you think you can. Just when you think you are done, step back, look again, and see if you could add a bit more detail. Don’t be afraid…have fun!!

I just want to make sure we are clear about this:Your supplies are to be only paper, your hands (or someone else’s :laugh:), a sturdy ATC card, and an adhesive (not tape!). Feel free to use a sealant if you like, but it’s not required. Do NOT use any embellishments for this swap…paper only.

Please send in your very best work...no sloppy, half-hearted cards...only cards you would love, love, love to receive need be sent in. If you have a difficult time mailing the cards to me because you like them so much, that’s a great sign!

******Please make sure your ATCs for All name is on the back of your cards EXACTLY how it is on the forum so those who receive your cards can give you rep points. ******

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 April 4th will be swapped out.
Cards that arrive after April 4th 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 keep your cards FLAT...no raised embellishments for this one.
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 or gets wet on the way to me.
Originals only, no prints of previous work.

Please feel free to post your cards to the thread and comment on other artists' cards.


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 for playing in this swap!

Ive been playing with paints and pens and so getting back to tearing paper will be a nice break. curious to see how small I can tear mulberry paper....maybe I will have to look and see what other kinds of papers I have to tear....exploration through materials is always interesting.....

I will try to make some torn-flowers!

If I still like the cards I made for this tomorrow, I'll put them in the mail. a little harder than abstract as the paper has to resemble something! I used origami paper.

01-28-2012, 01:15 PM
Can the paper we rip have paint on it? I ripped some flower petals out of the paper I clean my brushes on last night. Then got to wondering if that was ok. Also can we use papers that have printing/colors on them already?
If so, I have 2 done already so looks like I'm joining in :)
Here's the first

Lovely flowers posted so far.

A couple of questions: What's a good source for interesting papers? And when you order papers, do they have a strong smell? (Allergy issues.)

Gonna lurk till I figure out if I can do this.

Origami papers have interesting patterns and are relatively easy to tear. :yes:

mzspurslasso
01-28-2012, 09:26 PM
Fabulous flowers posted so far! Yes...you may use paper previously painted on.

Please be sure all flower parts are securely adhered down so they don't come off or get torn.

Thanks!!

I have found scrapbook paper and mulberry papers to be relatively scent free. I did order some interesting paper from somewhere else once that had such a strong order I wasn't able to use it.

You can get interesting bits from security envelopes. Lots of different patterns! I got at least two different patterns in the mail just today!

And don't forget your catalogs. I get lots of collage images via craft catalogs. Same thing could go for torn paper flowers!

Is it OK to tear up old postage stamps or collecting stamps? I just got a bunch that are stuck together. As I pull them apart they are tearing anyway. Some would make cool flowers.

Joss
01-30-2012, 02:25 PM
Another great idea for a swap- will lurk till I complete some other swaps, but will keep my eyes on this- fantastic cards done so far!

This may sound silly, but I love the idea for this swap- can the base card be precut, I mean does it have to be ripped too?


Another great question...the base card needs to be precut. What you put on it is what needs to be torn.

Thanks for asking such great questions ya'll!

I am noticing some sets of cards that look as if they have painted stems or paint or makers or some other medium added to the card for detail. Please note this section of the swap guidelines:

" I just want to make sure we are clear about this:Your supplies are to be only paper, your hands (or someone else’s ), a sturdy ATC card, and an adhesive (not tape!). Feel free to use a sealant if you like, but it’s not required. Do NOT use any embellishments for this swap…paper only.:

Any cards arriving with anything more than the listed supplies (paper, atc card, and adhesive) will be returned. I really, really, really do not like having to return cards so please be sure you read the swap guidelines.

Thanks so much!!

No worries tjs! Lots of your cards have made it here before. I'll dig through the other swaps to see if they are here and just misplaced. Maybe we had slow pony express horses working last week. ;)

Someday, perhaps I'll actually get ahead of all my swaps again instead of feeling like I'm always doing things at the last minute! Anyway, had a chance to tear some paper tonight, so here are the cards for this swap. Don't think I'll get them posted tomorrow, but hoping for Monday!

Not everyone posts to the threads. Sometimes you have to look under the member list to find them. Here's her info:
