Number of Cards: 3 for 3
Number of Participants: 40 U.S./10 International

Put on the Music and let it Inspire your ATC!!

This swap is about Song Titles and how the music or words inspire Images in your mind. You can use one piece of music to create 3 ATCs or three different songs. The Song Title can be used as part of image, but that is not necessary – just be sure to indicate the Song Title on the back of the card.

You can choose any type of music that inspires an image – classical, jazz, pop, rock, folk, country, etc. Please just put on the music, make great cards, and have fun.

Any medium and style of art is welcome. Please be original and creative.
All I ask is that you do not use bulky or heavy embellishments, because it causes the postal service to do unkind things to envelopes and it increases the cost of postage.

DUE DATE: Cards must be received by JULY 18, 2008. I will be mailing out the cards by July 25, 2008.

LATE CARDS: I will hold the late cards to swap with other late cards and will return them after 10 days if there are no cards to swap.

POSTAGE: U.S. Players: Please include a business size SASE with a 42 cent stamp and a loose 17 cent stamp. The 17 cent stamp will be returned if the extra postage is not required.

International Players: Please include a self-addressed mailing label. I will cover postage fees.


1. This will be a 3 for 3 swap. You send in 3 cards and get back 3. You are welcome to send two sets of 3 cards.
2. All cards must be 2.5 x 3.5.
3. Please put your USERNAME and Title of Song on the back of each card.
4. Please put your USERNAME and NAME OF SWAP on the back of your mailing envelope and on the back of your return envelope.
5. Please limit bulky embellishments.
6. I will notify you when the cards arrive and will update the swap thread.
7. I will PM my mailing address as you sign up for the swap.
8. Please post on the thread or PM me when your cards are being mailed.
9. Remember: Cards must be received by the due date: July 18, 2008. I will mail out swap cards on July 25, 2008.

can it also be a sleeping song for children - a lullaby?. I'm not sure if the translation is right. Or another children-song?

04-19-2008, 02:28 PM
Welcome to the Tune Swap, maxie23 and Veri!! It's great to have you part of my swap.

Yes, Veri, you may use a lullaby or children's song. Any song is fine -- I wanted to leave this first Tune swap fairly open so more people might be interested. I know that there will be some terrific cards inspired by song lyrics and titles.

05-11-2008, 09:35 PM
I did these for fun the other day ... HMT was watching a horror movie with all that awful music they use. I squeezed blobs of acrylic colours onto paper and then twirled my brush and doodled! They were done as a single piece, then when dry, I turned it over and marked out five ATC sized patches, so it's completely random. Unfortunately, the other two photos are blurred.



05-12-2008, 03:01 PM
Ibus - thanks for posting your Horror Movie Music cards -- they fit the theme and are probably even better in real life. Interesting technique -- the colors are blended very well.

bookviper - thanks for letting me know your cards are in the mail. I'll let you know when they arrive.

Of course you can join the swap, Queenofthenight!!! Thanks for asking -- and welcome.

I've been out of town for a couple of days and BOY did I have some neat envies waiting on me when I got home! Thank you NYJunkie for not only hosting, but the card you sent was a neat reminder, thanks! And Upwiththesun, Lynmarie, Alabasterturtle, and Stellacometa, all of you did beautiful work on your cards, thanks so much!!

Got mine as well, loved them and am thrilled at the quality. I received "Blackbird" from RAPA, "Good Things" from Wigbag, "I Love You Truly" from Littlebit, and the host card from NYJunkie (never got one of those before- what a lovely surprise!).
I will catch up with rep points and iTrader as soon as my migraine goes away, hopefully tomorrow.
