    Sign me up - I do have some questions:
    Can I use old drawings in new ways, cutting it up etc.? Also, how about envelope liner recolored?

    Hey! Please sing me up for the swap!

    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

    Please add me.
    Wasn't sure if I could get them done in time as we are leaving Monday for australia. But I think I can. Waiting is so tedious as is packing.

    Got to work on my cards straight away, and here they are: all elements are recycled/reused/repurposed.

    The bases are all from old cards (mostly Christmas cards); the backgrounds are all cut from leftover pieces from my daughter's GCSE art portfolio; the one on the far right has a paint test page as a background.

    Other elements are mostly from envelopes, either things which were stamped on the outside (the bird, the fan shape), punched out from envelope liners (the rooster, heart, word "Love") or stuck to the outside (washi tape, stamps - all of which are used, though not all of which show cancellation marks).

    Other elements are: card 2- samovar from an ad card from a magazine, castle from an admission ticket, card 3 - torn text strips from a library card catalogue card, red cellophane from a trash swap, card 4 - picture of boy in coat from discarded prints from an art project (other daughter), strip from a tram ticket.

    And finally, the poetic words on all four cards are all leftover words from cutting text up for found poetry swaps - when I go through and cut out interesting phrases, if I don't end up using them, I often put them in a folder for use later.
