    STRINGS ATTACHED


    This swap is inspired by the String technique in the Bernie Berlin, Artist Trading Card Workshop book. You don't need to have the book to participate.

    Wind it, tie it, lace it- string is lots of fun! It is inexpensive and adds agreat tactile element to your cards.

    In these cards I made, I wrapped a string around the card then coated it with gesso and applied layers of paint to it. In the first two I softened the edges of the images with gesso and paint.


    , ,

    Guidelines. Please read:

    The Cards:
    -All mediums are welcome with the exception of digital and photography.
    -Originals only, no prints of previous work.
    -Your cards should be more than a piece of string on pretty paper. Put some thought into it, be creative!
    -Make sure your strings are firmly attached. I used "Terrifically Tacky Tape" (red tape) from Prove Craft. You can also run them through eyelets.
    -No stickers.
    -Please focus on universal themes that most any others will enjoy, not on controversial subjects (religion, nudity, politics, war, etc. etc.).
    -New to ATC's? Check out this thread "ATC 101"

    Due Date:
    -In my hands February 25th. Late cards will be returned or swap between them if possible.
    -You can withdraw at any time, but please let me know.
    -I'll send you my address when you sign up.

    Postage:
    -I have the envelopes for this swap.
    -US players send an address label and loose postage in the amount of at least 64 cents for three cards, 81 cents for six.
    -International players please send just an address label. I got your postage covered.

    Don’t forget your user name on the back of the cards! Try to post your cards in the thead so we can all get inspired!

    The way I did the cards, as I explained, are exactly how the technique is explained in the book. The book has a lot of cool examples of cards using the technique.

    Elena, I have the book and love it!
    If the envelope doesn't arrive I will send another. It was a travel brochure and some maps of around where I live and other bits and pieces so I can get some more.
