    Dark Art with Found Poetry ATCs, due June 1, 2010

    Swap Title: Dark Art with Found Poetry
    Swap Due Date: June 1, 2010
    Signup Date: May 20, 2010
    Last Day to Withdraw: May 31, 2010
    Number of Cards: 3 for 3 OR 6 for 6
    Number of participants: unlimited



    Dark Art with Found Poetry
    A Mixed-Media ATC Swap



    cards by amyfaerie, AnnD and camcas

    For this swap, make three or six mixed-media cards. The card should incorporate both dark art AND found poetry.* I will post more sample cards over the next few weeks--the ones above are mine, AnnD's and mine. It can be the addition of the found poetry that makes the card dark, too . . . as long as the overall effect is dark, weird, creepy or scary.

    * found poetry should consist of actual words cut from an outside text. no cards should incorporate handwritten found poetry. for more on found poetry, see the links below, or scope out my article in the Winter 2010 issue of Art Trader magazine.

    Wikipedia's Found Poetry entry
    The Found Poetry Project
    Karen's Whimsy on found poetry

    Keep in mind that you probably will receive a mix of returns. A note on how I swap:

    • Overall, I try to swap quality for quality. However, there are times when a player may receive a card that he/she feels is below his/her own level of skill. If that happens, remember it's ATCs for ALL, and everyone here is at a different place in the artistic journey.
    • I try to keep an artist's personality in mind when I swap--but I don't comb through the thread to see who dropped hints for what cards; that would take me forever.
    • If your cards are late, it doesn't matter how great they are--they'll be returned.


    The work on your cards should be entirely different and original (don't "assembly line" three cards that are nearly exactly the same). Cards that incorporate digital elements need to be held to this standard, too.

    - All cards should be standard 3.5” x 2.5”
    - All cards should be sent in plastic sleeves.
    - Please put artist ID & real name on backs of all ATCs at a minimum.

    - Please only send art that took time and care.
    - No card's focus should be a sticker or scrapbooking embellishment.

    - Please include username and swap name on all envelopes sent in.
    - International peeps--I will cover you. Don't make your cards out of lead, though.

    US Participants--Please include a business-size SASE with stamps = to what it takes to ship your cards to me. If fifteen players send an SASE with 44 cents on it, and I have to pay fifteen people's postage overages, that's really uncool.

    All cards are due in my hands by the due date. Late cards will be returned. Please mail early so they arrive on time. Late cards without notice will receive neutral iTraders. No shows also receive neutrals.

    Also, just an FYI . . . extra "host cards" never take the place of properly addressed, sufficiently posted SASEs. If I had to choose, I'd prefer the latter. *hugs*


    Please PM me as you prepare to send your cards if you need my address.

    Who wants to play? I hope YOU do!

    I updated my available ATCs on January 9th . . . if I'm slow to respond, it's nothing personal. I'm always willing to trade!

    Why do people keep coming up with all these great swaps when I'm going to be away and won't have time to do them?

    Mind you, since it's a June deadline I'm sure I can manage to squeeze it in. Please can I join?

    I'm pretty terrible at dark art AND found poetry but I'm joining anyway.
    You're probably thinking: "Oh BK, Why would you put us through that?"
    Because I know that there are going to be really awesome cards that come out of this swap and I'm a greedy art-hording hog face, that's why. My apologies in advance. xoxo

    OK, I have never made ATCs on the first day of a swap before, but this was SO my mood this morning that I could not contain myself. I was even planning to make baguettes today, but bah! What's bread when there could be art?

    Amy, if these are for any reason not dark enough, PM me, and we'll have a whole dark discussion: dark, dark, dark, dork, dork, dork.

    OKay I am also not much good at this...probably worse than BK, in spite of her art hog ways...so I am gonna lurk in the dork corners of the swap for a while.

    Ann, you do have a knack with the head.
