View Full Version : ATC Background Swap, Due December 16th, 2019

ALL RETURNS WERE MAILED OUT ON MONDAY, 23 DECEMBER. Happy Christmas!

Swap Deadline: 16th December 2019
Cards: 5:5
Players: Unlimited
Sign up/withdrawal deadline: none, but please note I live in the UK and allow mailing time for that!

Sometimes it's nice to make cards from scratch, but it's also fun to take a background someone else has created and add to that. Particularly if they use a technique you aren't quite so familiar with. I was thinking that it's been a while since I've seen a background swap, and it was time for another one. I looked back through the archive to find a previous one, but without much joy, so please let me know if you have any questions not covered here!

card requirements:

SIZE: 2.5x3.5" only - they can always be trimmed to a different shape later if the maker wants to. Backgrounds may be either portrait or landscape (or of course, unspecific!)
STURDINESS: Use a reasonably sturdy background - i.e. not thin paper.
TECHNIQUE: You can use any technique you like for your background (or more than one) - Some possible techniques include: stamping, inking, collage, gelli prints, painting, monoprinting, resist, bubble printing, marbling - really, anything you can think of, as long as someone will be able to use it as a background! Cutting a piece of interesting paper to size does not count as making a background. Collaging several pieces of interesting paper together is fine :)
VARIETY: All your cards may be completely different, or some or all may be similar, though no photocopies, please. It's fine to make a larger piece of background and cut it into size for this swap.
INFORMATION: Please include your forum username on the back of your card. Some detail about your technique is nice, but not required. If you do write about technique on the back, please try to leave enough space for another artist to add her/his info later.

returns:

Please note that returns will be more or less random (I'll try to give you a good assortment of styles and colours). You will get five cards from five different artists. A hostess card would be welcome, but is not required.

postage:

Please note that I live in the UK, and mailing times, especially in December, can be a little longer than you might expect. I'd allow 10 days to 2 weeks, just to be on the safe side.

ALL PLAYERS: please include a large address label or an envelope with your name clearly printed.

UK PLAYERS: one UK stamp (regular, not large) should cover your returns

INTERNATIONAL PLAYERS: please include US$2 or 2 global forever stamps (I can use these to play in other swaps - do not attach them to your return envelope as I have to use UK stamps to mail to you). Alternatively, pm me for paypal info.

Here are some examples of backgrounds which I have received in the past, either in swaps or as gifts, to give you some ideas of what's possible.

I spent most of last evening doing bubble art. I think that they are fantastic as it. Most are single colors but a few have multiple colors. In these pictures the paper is not cut to ATC size yet.

Personally, I would want to start them with just the bubbles as the background. Katelnorth - Is this ok?

what is bubble art?

Haagmm
10-15-2019, 01:09 PM
what is bubble art?

I mis-typed: think it’s actually bubble prints. You mix soap and paint and a little water in a dish and blow bubbles. Then place the paper lightly on the bubbles and it leaves a print of the bubbles. It was tons of fun - we did the entire rainbow plus grey and black.

katelnorth
10-15-2019, 06:28 PM
I think they look great, Melissa. I don't think backgrounds always need to be complex, but what I want to avoid in this swap is someone taking some commercial paper and just cutting it into pieces. If you've clearly employed a technique for your backgrounds, even if they are a single colour, I don't see a problem with that. I especially like the blue/purple ones :)

Well I have about 80 bubble print backgrounds cut. :twitcy: that always happens when I try something new- especially when my youngest is home. He’s an art major and loves to try new stuff, especially with mom’s supplies and when moms cleaning up. Oh, and I left all the pink and grey uncut because they’re for the monochrome coin swaps.

Anyway, I think that almost all of them are fantastic in their own ways but I will go through them and pick the best for this swap.

Awesome - they look great, haagmm.

I've made some backgrounds myself for this swap - here they are...

210717210718210716210715210714

I started with a sheet of paper which was a paint wiping sheet from one of my daughter's art projects. To this (which was pretty cool to start with), I added some collaged bits of dictionary pages and some thin white tissue paper with glittery bits in it. All five backgrounds are cut from the same larger piece, but they are all quite different. Fun!

Isn't it funny how sometimes the paper we wipe our brush on turns out to be a piece of art itself? I know I often save those bits thinking I can use them later. They're usually much more spontaneous than my actual artwork.:rolleyes: Your backgrounds are great!

Sure thing, Annie - as long as your cards can get to me by December 16th, there's no set signup date. That's over a month, so I'm sure you still have plenty of time. I'll add you to the list.

katelnorth
11-15-2019, 12:09 PM
Just a reminder, that it's approximately one month until this swap's deadline. Please remember that the closer we get to Christmas, the slower the post is likely to be. Two weeks SHOULD still be enough mailing time, but I wouldn't allow any less than that.

If you need to drop out, it's not a problem, but it would be good to know, so I'm not wondering if your cards are on their way or not!

I gotta say, if there's anyone lurking around who hasn't decided whether or not to commit, I've just been through all the envelopes for this swap, checking I've done iTrader, etc and there is such a great variety of very cool backgrounds - I really recommend you try to join in - you won't regret it!

Hi K,
Is just a painting OK? Done by me of course. �� I tend to work in acrylics without a brush, and apply lots of paint, so end up with interesting textures.

Ash

katelnorth
11-25-2019, 02:55 AM
I think a painted background is fine. It's art that you've produced, rather than just something you've cut from commercial paper.

Thanks for having me, what a good idea for a swap:)
Here are mine, 5 for 5 and a hostess extra. Mainly playing with paint, pouring and adding extra bits or watercolour with lots of water:)

HI ladies - deadline for this swap is tomorrow, and as far as I can tell, I have received all the cards which have been mailed, so we are good to go. I will try to swap out in the evenings next week, though it's a pretty busy week with one thing and another, so it will probably take a few days. And for the ones I will need to get stamps for, I won't get to the post office until at least Thursday. (I have some international stamps in my possession, but not enough for a whole swap). I'll keep you posted as to when things actually go out!

Just to say, I've not forgotten everyone - it's just an extremely busy time of year. I hope to do the actual swapping out on Sunday and mailing on Monday - will keep you posted!

OK, so... Envelopes are all ready to go, cards all swapped out. There were so many great backgrounds that I think you'll all be pleased. I am about 98 per cent certain that I didn't accidentally give anyone two backgrounds by the same artist, but if by some chance I did, please let me know and I'll try to sort it out. If I did, they were very different in style, so you might not mind! But I'm pretty sure I didn't.

I had enough stamps for about 2/3 of the envelopes, but I still need to hit the PO for the rest; I'll do that tomorrow.

Some of you also received a small handful of paper scraps in with your returns (this is because paper scraps seem to breed in my house and I take all opportunities to rid myself of them, lol). If you didn't, this isn't personal, but it was because if an envelope weighed under 20g, it could go with a cheaper stamp, so I didn't want to add anything to that. Once it's over 20g, the next weight is 100g, so it doesn't matter if you add something. It's about a dollar more expensive for the higher rate, so I wanted to take advantage of those light envelopes. I just didn't want anyone to feel sleighted if other people mentioned getting scraps and you didn't get any!

Please try to let me know when your returns arrive, and leave iTrader for me and rep points (you rock) for the people whose backgrounds you receive.

Just remains to say, thanks again for playing and for making such great backgrounds. I look forward to seeing some cards made with them in future, perhaps.

My cards arrived today. Yay! Thanks folks, I love them all. And thanks for the extra paper bits, Kate. I think I just need to figure out how to leave points for everyone now.

Ha ha. Yeah, you accidentally gave me an iTrader. Taken care of, and I PMd you with a little unasked for tutorial on rep points. :)

Just to say, for anyone leaving rep points, I've linked the names in the first post so you can easily find a post by the person you need in order to leave rep points.

Thanks for letting me know yours arrived, daisyart

I'm looking forward to receiving some backgrounds. By the way, I've become kind of addicted to making backgrounds and have some new techniques to try now that I found my sandpaper.

Wishing everyone the very best!

Not surprisingly, my UK players have received their cards - but it's nice to see at least one international player has hers as well - hopefully the Christmas rush won't slow things down too much :)

I thought that those whose backgrounds I received might like to see the cards I made with them - they are cards #74, #76, #85, #86 and #87 in my current Gallery. Hope you like them
