View Full Version : Mixed Media Colorful Hearts + Positivity ATC Swap~ due March 9, 2018



miss

Swap Due Date - March 9, 2018
Signup/withdraw date - March 1
Number of Cards - 3 for 3
Number of participants: 30-ish?

I'm in the mood for some brightly colored hearts, positive vibes/ messages, and awesome art!

Please read all directions. Create three cards that contain the following elements:

1. A heart~ There must be at least one clearly visible heart on your card. I am talking about a traditional heart shape... please no anatomical hearts only (if you want to include an anatomical heart with a heart shape, that's up to you...). Multiple hearts are fine. (NOTHING OVERTLY VALENTINES-ISH, PLEASE.)

2. Some kind of positive word or message~ Your text can be hand written, stamped, collaged, found poetry, etc., but should be legible and in English (or with an English translation). (NOTHING OVERTLY RELIGIOUS, PLEASE.)

3. Mixed media~ Please use three or more distinct media/ techniques. Possibilities include ink, pencils, paint, stamps, transparencies, embossing, small/ thin embellishments (tiny brads, flat charms, etc.), epoxy, crackle medium, fabric, stitching, beeswax... and I'm sure there's lots of other stuff I'm forgetting! Get creative and think layers! (Please no loose glitter or super thick embellishments!)

The nuts and bolts:
- All cards should be standard 3.5” x 2.5” and at least one layer of card stock.
- No really heavy or bulky embellishments. I mean it. If it's more than an eighth of an inch think, do not put it on your card!
- All cards should be sent in plastic sleeves.
- Please include your username and the swap name on the back of all cards. Also include a list of the media you used (remember, there should be at least three).
- Please only send work you are proud of. No falling off bits, bad coloring, slap-dash work, etc. Make sure the media you are using incorporate into a nice whole. I'm not looking for a heart on a card with some pasted on text and a gel pen border. Make it look like you worked hard.

Mailing:
- Please read the thread up top about how to mail ATC's. Do not decorate your envelope.
- Include your username on your SASE.
- US Participants – Include a stamped, self addressed envelope with at least .70 postage, since mixed media cards tend to be a bit thicker. Even if your own cards aren't thick, your returns might be! (However, if you are sending really thick cards (nooo!), please go back and read the directions!)
- International participants – Please include a label with your name and address, and either one US dollar, approximately $1.20 in US postage, unused postage from the UK, Canada, or Austraila, or PayPal.

Please note the March 9 due date. I tend to mail out returns fairly promptly, so plan to be on time. I will not wait for late cards.

ohhappyday
01-14-2018, 01:32 PM
These were FUN to create! :) The hearts and the backgrounds are gelli prints with acrylic paint. I've used other layers of paper, stamping, stenciling, sponging, stitching, markers and washi tape. I would love to hear which one is your favorite. I think "follow your heart" is my fav.

Thanks Castlequeen5! I found the the washi tape at Hobby Lobby.
The silver that is on the cards is just a silver glitter pen.

CastleQueen5
02-09-2018, 02:07 AM
My cards. I dont have them in front of me but in general I used Glimmermists or Heidi swap paints on book pages, music sheets or caligraphy paper. I stamped the hearts on some caligraphy paper. Used this awesome set of black and white paint pens that I almost didnt buy. Added a layer of modge podge, and the top layer is Tim Holtz distress collage medium. I love this item. I have some texture paste or modeling paste on some and black faber pen. another thing I also didnt buy and love the pen set. I used a gold gel pen on one card.

A postage stamp on one, a Tim holtz border on one.

The odd one out, the heart was a punch not a stamp, it also has some flowers because it seemed naked without the flowers, and the lace like boarder.

Oops! Unexpected health challenge had me out of commission for too long. When I was finally able to get the cards on their way, my mind was so muddled and I was in such a hurry that I forgot to add the name of the swap to the backs and I didn't put them in plastic sleeves. I hope that won't disqualify them. What a way to mess up my very first swap!

miss
03-06-2018, 06:28 PM
Hopefully they won't be damaged in transit, and I can put them in sleeves for you. As long as you remembered the SASE, you're good.

If you didn't list the media used on the back, either, could you send me a pm so I can add it? That seems to be the most frequently forgotten information in this swap :) (Thanks for everyone who has responded to my pm's for media information!)

I enjoyed making these cards - very fun swap! It was hard for me, out of my comfort zone, but I learned so much.

I am so sorry that I did not scan my cards!! I typically scan and file every card I make. I don't usually put my mediums on the back of my cards unless it is part of the swap requirement...If you have the ability to scan and post mine, I may be able to identify what I did?

Weddit, I watched your video on making card 3. I really like the Remember your dreams. I need to remember my dreams. Not even sure what my dreams were anymore. I was trying to watch that video but hubby came out and I dont want the noise to bother him.

After a long swapping-out session yesterday (this was one of the biggest swaps I've ever hosted-- yikes!), returns are on their way to you today! Thank you all very much for participating, and thanks again for the many awesome hostess cards I received. :) I hope your returns bring plenty of brightness and positivity to your day. This was a very fun swap!

Just a reminder that only your hostess (that would be me) receives i-trader... If you want to thank those players whose cards you receive, leave them a rep point (that's the "you rock" button at the bottom of one of their posts). I tried to leave i-traders as I received cards, but if I forgot anyone, please let me know!

Incredibly fast swap! I received my awesome cards Saturday. Thank you, Marilyn R, Fandanie (?), and Heather!

Marilyn R and Heather F - I need your ATCsForAll name so I can leave feedback, please!

miss
03-19-2018, 06:13 PM
weditt, I could have sworn everyone had their username somewhere on the backs of their cards (because I kept checking backs compulsively when I was swapping out to make sure no one got their own back or got two from the same person...). Anyhow, I'm pretty sure Marilyn is TherapeuticArt, and I think Heather is CastleQueen?

TherapeuticArt
03-19-2018, 07:19 PM

They did put their names on their cards - I just overlooked both! :swoon: Thanks for cluing me in.

I got one of your cards but apparently I need to spread some love around before I can give you another "You Rock!" - so that is what I will do. I have not forgotten!


I got 3 really cute cards. Thank you.
