    RRR - Recycle Reuse Repurpose - Open Media Due Nov 8

    Swap Due Date: November 8
    Signup/Withdraw Date: None just please communicate
    Number of ATCs: 3 for 3
    Number of Participants: 20 - this is my second swap
    Media: Open Media (no digital)
    Swap Name : RRR - Recycle Reuse Repurpose

    Details
    I LOVE saving things that were going to be trash or simply lying around unused and using them in my art. So this swap is all about RRR / Recycle, Reuse, Repurpose!

    The bulk of your items must have lived another life at some point or be a leftover remnant from another day another project. Your base could be an old cereal box. You could use old book pages, receipts, magazine clippings, scraps of lace, fabric or "recovered" washi tape. Think about cardstock from a recent greeting card or repurpse a watercolor painting that didn't quite fit the bill and doodle all over it. This is even a great time to use bits from your happy mail! I know I have quite a few focal points, lace, images, words, papers, bits and bobs to easily make a ton of ATCs.

    You are allowed to use ink, paint, pens, etc. If you simply MUST spoil the fun, you can use something new but try to limit it to only one item. (For example, if you just can't find a focal point that makes you happy, you can pull a flower or butterfly from your stash.)

    So please join me in pulling from all those odd, ends and scraps!


    Requirements

    Must be your best effort. No sticker slapping, sloppy work, or work you wouldn't want to receive.
    Must be standard ATC size: 2.5” x 3.5” (No APCs please)
    Muse be in their own plastic sleeve.
    Must be sturdy - a good standard is that the card would be damaged if were it bent.

    Please include the following on the back of your ATC:
    Swap name
    User name (Real name is optional but nice)
    Location

    About My Hosting

    As best I'm able I will...

    In Closing

    They are wonderful! So I have to confess, I've been cleaning my studio all day and have found a pile of things that I could use. It seemed every time I picked something up I got all excited because I could use it. Of course, I don't need 712 ATCs... lol My studio was messy to say the least.

    Fun idea, but just lurking.
    I have limited crafting time and one month is not a long enough turnaround time for me.
