    MMH: Altered Rolodex Art Cards

    This is a thread for those of us wanting to get started collecting altered rolodex cards that have been artistically altered. These can be HD/HP, or collaged, rubber stamped, monoprinted, etc. NO STICKERS.

    A MMH works like this: I will start with a selection of 3 themes that would make me happy for an altered rolo. The next person that comes along will agree to make one of my themes and then list 3 themes of their own that would make them happy. And so it goes...

    Please try to complete and send your trade within two weeks of agreeing to do it.

    No chatting on the thread since it makes it hard to follow.

    Since rolos come in a variety of sizes please specify in your request which size you need.

    No really bulky embellishments on these. I'm thinking that could fill up a rolodex pretty fast if these get too thick.

    Don't forget to put your user information on the back of the card.
    No messy backs either.

    I know there is no chatting but I can only find 2 1/4 x 4 inch rolos & they have lines. Will that size work & is it OK for me to gesso out the lines? Mine will probably be HD/HP so the lines must go away

    NEENER!!!!! I LOVE IT!!!! This is my first rolo swap & I can see that it will be a lot of fun. You're very quick on the trigger, my friend. Thank You!
    Now I better get crackin'

    OK, I found a pack of blank cards but they're still 2 & 1/4 x 4 so I guess I'll just trace around & add 1/4 to the height. I like the idea of using whatever paper suits the medium used. That makes for a lot better wc art

    I'm off to make flowers for Neener.

    OK, LindyLu, no more chatting in the thread
