Swap Due Date SEPT 15th 2020
No withdrawal, type swap
Mail by date USA SEPT 8th 2020
Canada, August 31st, 2020
UK and AU August 18th,
3:3 or 5:5 cards FULL no Envelopes left


This swap was brained stormed in a past Trash to Treasure swap. It was time I posted it like I promised.

Each player will get an envelope with Random paint chips, random mad gab game cards and random images. The challenge is to make some coherent art by combining one of each item, on each card:
one paint chip, one mad gab word and one image. Please do not just slap the 3 items together. You expected to add some of your own art supplies such as: other images, postage stamps, borders, ribbons, paint ink etc. This wont be easy.

You may choose to put the paint chip color name, on the front. IF you do not put it on the front, please put the paint chip name on the back.


ALL cards need a sturdy backing. if you can bend your card, then it is isn't a card it is paper. Cards sent to me without a sturdy backing will be traded with other of similar quality, or may be returned unswapped.

All cards need to measure 2.5 x 3.5 No shape cards, no coins, no APCS.

All cards need to be labeled with your real name, and your AFA username, so others can leave you their thanks via YouRock!s.

TO SIGN UP you must do 3 things!

1. Post in the tread to sign up that you have read all the requirements and are aware that this is a no withdrawal swap, and that any withdrawal or late cards will receive a neutral iTrader, and that reimbursement for initial mailing costs. NO coins please, ONLY stamps or dollars (Sorry but this can add up over time, and I dont want to upset hubby with my hobby expenses)

2. Send me your address, (unless you are on The CRRR list), please don't assume, I have saved your address, this just delays the mailings. ONCE I get your address in my INBOX I will send you an envelope.

3. only for INTernational players>>> let me know if I should send a lighter envelope to you for 3:3 cards.

POSTING TO THE THREAD

Post to the thread to sign up.
Please post to the thread when you have received your trash/stash items FROM ME
Please post when you have mailed your cards, Hopefully you can post images or links.

Please post to the thread when you get your Returns, and state the user name of the artists. Please rate your artists using the YOU ROCK system. Thanking your artists is not optional. It is part of completing your swap commitments. The hostess gets itrader, if you are so inclined. I have so many, I dont need more, I just need to know you got your returns.

No silent swappers. You must be active in posts.


POSTAL STUFF
FROM ME: These envelops weight over 1 ounce and cost 70 cents to mail to a USA address. Please remember to send postage stamps for my initial cost of sending. International to Canada will be $1.20, all other countries $2.24 unless you opt for a lighter envelope. see below.

FROM ME: Cost to return swapped card to you can vary.

I do anticipate that a 5:5 set will weight more than 1 ounce. That cost 70 cents in postage for the USA and about $2.24 for International countries. Canada gets a deal and can get 2 ounces for $1.20.

3 cards can be easily sent with one forever USA stamps, and $1.20 for international

Please keep that in mind when sending me stamps for your return mail.

You can send me SASE or you can send me a sticky address label and loose postage. I will take US dollars, and other countries $1 equivalent, in paper form, please dont send me coins or Euros.

I got you down, And I got your address. BTW since you are new to the kind of swap. You should know you can use the envelope, the stamps on the envelope and the tape to seal it. IT all counts.

I think you will find this fun.

When the envelope arrives, come back to this thread, and tell me it arrived. Then tell me when you mail your art to me.

Oh you lurker you. No crime against that here.

I was so tempted to go work on my cards last night just to see how hard it might be. It might be pretty hard to make art from the paint chips given, with the 2 mad gab cards and the images. I am always pretty amazed at the creative genius you all possess though.

So you remember this books for kids where there was a head, a torso and feet, and you could switch the images around to make an entire person? I keep thinking this was might be like that. Where I have to rotate the words around to the paint chips to make a nice images, and then of course I have to add the a stamp image and it all has to make art in a coherent way. I haven't even started yet. I know I can make it work though.

I received my envelope of cards, stamps, and paint chips. The top of the envelope was half ripped open, but it was still stuffed full so it doesn't seem that anything was lost in transit.

It's odd, though, that I have not received the puzzle pieces yet and you mailed them 3 days before you mailed me this envelope... hmmm. :unsure:

Cards are complete... I went with my interpretation of the paint chip, not the immediate thought (I hope that’s ok)
I’m listing my paint chip color, and how I interpreted it :)
1. Sexy pink - sexy lady
2. Orange slice - Mr & Mrs Orange split up
3. Cool Cucumber - She’s Cool as a Cucumber
4. Mint shake - her music makes my head shake
5. Walnut Bark - I tore pieces of paint chip to make bark around my inventor
6. Berries & Cream - I turned “ink bottle stamp” into a perfume bottle

CQ it was a bit difficult, I did do some swapping of items til I got them all to were I was happy, picking one of each item was challenging and fun, thank you for such a great swap! I’ll be mailing them back to you today!

I also used the envelope liner on two of the card (to add to backgrounds, without covering too much of paint chip color) and I used one of postage stamps from envelope on “pink” card.

CastleQueen5
07-12-2020, 01:39 PM
I had some good questions in my INBOX

1. I was wondering if the paint chips were intended to be a sort of card base? Or if we could cut them into a shape or design, and use something else for the card base?

2. Also I only received 2 of the game cards so I think I was wrong with my first thought of each card having one card one image and one paint chip, it’s really one word cut from a card. Is that correct??


I am glad I waited til I got 2 cups of coffee in me, before replying. I think you will find that many of the paints chips are too small for a full background. That does depend on the randomness of your envelope.

So yes, you can use something else as the base. The swap instructions state that you can put the paint chip color name on the front or you can glue it to the back, if either are possible. One of the smaller paint chips is just a gold shiny square. So no name that I remember.

Yes you can cut them into a shape or design.


QUESTION 2. EACH PLAYER ONLY GOT 2 MAD GAB CARDS. FROM THOSE 2 CARDS YOU NEED TO CUT ONE WORD MIN. FOR EACH CARD. So each card needs at least one Paint chip, at least one word, and at least one image, that I sent. You may add more paint chips, words and images of your own.

CastleQueen5

I have room for you. I would love it if you just send me a pm to remind me of your mailing address. adding you to the list.


I will go update.

I might have one envelope left, as I am still waiting to hear from a player, and I have 2 lighter envelopes that do not have the gold square.

If you are looking for a good example of a variety of completed cards. click on Karr3ll's blue name on the first post.

You can see her cards.

Lets use one as an example, SHOCKING ORANGE has the paint chip name on the front, orange slice. It works will with the theme of the couple getting a divorce, she used a word from her Random mad gab card, Shocking, and the hand image was one I sent.

http://www.atcsforall.com/forum/showthread.php?37357-Paint-chips-mad-gabs-PLUS-Mixed-media-T2T-type-Challenge-DUE-SEPT-15th-2020&p=2082096#post2082096


If you click on her images they will become larger. You can see some of them have the paint chip name incorporated into her art. Like berries and cream on the perfume bottle.

You get to decide as the artist if you want the paint chip name on the front or if you can glue it or write it on the back.

Again that gold square didn't have a name.

Karr3ll
07-12-2020, 01:59 PM
I’m happy my cards are able to be an example of what you were looking for CQ.

I’ll say I spread everything out, cut the words apart and played with the items, until ideas clicked in my head... I used envelope items, one of each (or more) as stated in direction.
My personal additions were the people, pen, and ink pads.
I did choose to use paint chip “colors” as inspiration for my cards.

Let me ask you about your experience.

Mad Gab cards are double sided, words on both sides. Did you find that if you cut the words apart on one side that the Words on the other side lined up? I haven't played with this option yet.

CASTLEQUEEN I cut them with my straight - paper cutter and the words line up perfect (well mine did) so that I could pick the word on either side of the card :)

I have heard of this thing called an address book. I have even seen some nice ones at thrift stores. and ugly ones at retail stores. I had a very hard time finding a nice one for my mother in the last two years.


BTW< I am opening my mail. I have been busy working a new temp job. So busy busy busy with online training.

KARR3LL, your awesome examples of this swap arrived. Thanks for remembering to send me re-imbursement postage. I also am thrilled that I get to pick a hostess card. That is a tough choice, i have looked and relooked. I either like INVENTOR, because I like the use of the lion image and the words. OR I like shocking Orange slice, because it was such a clever use of the image, paint chip and mad gab word.

I agree, it only has a few simple ingredients, to make something work with the random stuff. I really do need to try working with the stuff myself and see what I come up with.

Don't forget the statement that you understand....

CastleQueen5
07-14-2020, 12:27 PM
TO SIGN UP you must do 3 things!

1. Post in the tread to sign up that you have read all the requirements and are aware that this is a no withdrawal swap, and that any withdrawal or late cards will receive a neutral iTrader, and that reimbursement for initial mailing costs. NO coins please, ONLY stamps or dollars (Sorry but this can add up over time, and I dont want to upset hubby with my hobby expenses)

2. Send me your address, (unless you are on The CRRR list), please don't assume, I have saved your address, this just delays the mailings. ONCE I get your address in my INBOX I will send you an envelope.

3. only for INTernational players>>> let me know if I should send a lighter envelope to you for 3:3 cards. I DIDNT GET ANY INTERNATIONAL PLAYERS

My first card practically made itself. I will probably jazz it up a bit. Now I have to think about the others.

My first card used the color pumpkin patch and I interpreted that as an eye patch shaped like a pumpkin.

Too bad I don't post visuals any more. (Aging requires self-gifts.)

then 2 more cards made themselves. With the first one, I found the paint chip called the Atlantic Ocean so that became a 3 1/2 inch ocean. The ticket, I cut into a boat and put the little stamped bird onboard. Perfect! Except I didn't have a gab word. Nothing fit until I saw the word "Leave" I added n S and drew a tree on the back of the boat and stamped on some leaves.

Excellent work, I left some comments in the gallery.

I really am impressed. One would think I cheated and matched up items for you, but we all know I didnt. Your cards seemed to come together so flawlessly.

For instance the berries and cream you had the typerwriter, and you got mad gab word Heathly.


for the Frida card you used the bird image, and the word foot. That bird goes perfect with Friday
For the fight card, the storm cloud paint chip with the word fight and the ticket plus the hand are all perfect together.

For HISSy you used part of the word NO lion, You're great. Super idea, I never thought of that.

And I have to agree with Angeljoy that owl card is awesome.

BluSkyHare
07-18-2020, 02:03 PM

I just finished watching "Frida" on Netflix so the crimson color inspired me to add her and whimsical images. Did you know that she had several toes amputated? That's why I used the mad gab word "foot". :)

I like the bright pink bird one, plus you used more than one word. great use of words

Then I like the one with the bird postage stamp, because I am a sucker for cards with postage stamps

The Texas cowboy, pardon, is so fun.

My favorite is SPICE girl because I am so impressed that you could use that word.

It's funny how my cards came together with the little box of things I brought to the hotel we are staying at. I am away with my husband while he is working and have lots of alone time in our room. The girls at the hotel are getting used to us coming every few weeks now and gave us a suite this time for the same price as a regular room. I also think it helps too because they love our beagle who is a cuddle bug.

I knew she was in a lot of pain over her life. I didnt remember about her toes. Her marriage cause a lot of pain too, but of a different kind.

Yes, according to the movie she was in an auto accident and broke her back and hurt internal organs, then she lost some toes, and she drank too much. And yes, her husband was a serial cheater, but she knew that when she married him.

The challenge is to make some coherent art by combining one of each item, on each card:
one paint chip, one mad gab word and one image. Please do not just slap the 3 items together. You expected to add some of your own art supplies such as: other images, postage stamps, borders, ribbons, paint ink etc. This wont be easy.

ONE image, one paint chip one mad gab word. You can do it.

I got mail today from Monroy28, Lovely!! I think I will keep the Midlife crisis flamingo. I like how you make long sentences for each card.

Then I got one word cards from CHimerex, It is so amazing to see both on the same day, and both such great quality art.

One word, vs long sentences. You artists rock.

And from Chimerex. It survived. even though you marked it non machinable. It did get a postmark form a machine. But it survived.

each card outgoing. is also none machinable due to the button. It is not a big deal for me to take the cards to the PO and get them hand canceled. BUT no guarantee about the PO keeping them hand canceled. The PO is so moody.

I think I will keep either the cuddly dog, or the SLEEP with the eye, both are so cute.

THE MAD GAB word needs to be cut from the card and added to your art. You can not write it in, as we then have no idea which word you are using.

WELL DONE! I was so impressed with Seascape, because you had all those tiny grasses in the sand. That seemed to make some time.

Then I saw the kitten with the cactus. Adorable.

Great use of the typerwriter, I like it on the red.

WELL DONE! I was so impressed with Seascape, because you had all those tiny grasses in the sand. That seemed to make some time.

Then I saw the kitten with the cactus. Adorable.

Great use of the typerwriter, I like it on the red.

Ok so now if I say something gushy about the bee I am just being overkill, but the bee one is super fine too.

I love to paper piece. It's my favorite kind of art to do. Making my own patterns and cutting all the tiny (and big) pieces and putting them together to create something unique.

Hi All, I got a message saying that my cards have yet to be received but I mailed them ages ago. I don't know why they haven't gotten there yet and I am not sure what to do to find them. Any suggestions?

Did you take photos of your cards? Did you post, in this thread that you mailed them? Maybe those two suggestions might help me narrow down when and where your cards have gotten to.

CMontalvo, your fun cards came today. I appreciate the hostess option. I am going for the cactus card, but the lion and fish balloon was very tempting.

I was having so much fun that I forgot to record the paint chip colors. Now I've transformed them and can't see the colors. oops... also I messed up one of the stamped images so one of the cards doesn't meet the rules of the swap.

I remember the girl one being blurry, Checking with Jazzears about her cards. I will be swapping soon.


Gee blurring is a nice word for art, but it is blurry in an artsy way. And I liked it so i do remember it.

Yes, I try to give cards to the people who said they really wanted them. For instance whoever said they love the Mic Jagger card got that one. I think it was Bluskyhare

I also tried to send you maybe a theme or a style similar to what you submitted. So if you did a vintage woman I tried to give you vintage. etc.
