    Library Card Catalog Swap - Round 5!! Due July 31st

    Swap Due Date July 31st
    Sign up by:July 24th
    Withdrawal deadline: none, but must communicate!
    Number of Cards ~ 3 for 3, or 6 for 6
    Number of Participants – unlimited
    Mixed media incorporating Card Catalogs

    5th Library card catalog swap.

    This here is the 5th round.
    Hey, so do you remember when you used the card catalog to search for books in the library? Or, you haven’t, but you’re curious? Below is an image of a card catalog.

    1_atccardexample__800x479_.jpg



    These cards are pretty sturdy, and I have a bunch of them. This swap is a chance to make mixed media ATCs with old card catalogs. You can collage, tear, use the card as a base to paint, draw, etc.

    Swap Requirements:
    1. It must be standard ATC sized 3.5” x 2.5”, so you'll need to cut the card down if you use it as a base.
    2. You must be able to tell (even faintly) it came from a card catalog.
    3. Make sure cards are well-glued and sealed.
    4. Use only light embellishments and make sure your cards fit in plastic sleeves.

    Optional:
    *You should try to base your art off the cards you get. However, while this is preferred, it is not required.
    *An extra card for the host is welcome, but completely optional.

    How to get these lovely card catalogs? If you sign up to play, I'll need you to PM me your address. I'll send you 6 cards, you choose the 3 you want to do, or 6 if you so wish.

    Choose your card type.
    snipped for room

    Mailing Information ~
    * Include username, real name, your state/country and the swap name on the back of all cards - and put username and swap name on all envelopes sent.
    * US Participants – Please include postage and a mailing label. This is preferred to a SASE. An extra stamp would also be nice (for initially sending the cards), but the extra stamp is optional.
    * International Participants - Please send a clearly-addressed envelope or mailing label and I will cover postage for the first three. If you don't want/need postage covered, just give me a heads up.

    If you get the initial catalog cards and decide not to participate, that's fine. Please just keep the cards, no need to return them.

    When you receive your returns, please leave I-Trader for your swap host and rep points for the artists of the cards you receive. People like to know where their little artworks find home.

    Quick key- * means I've mailed out the initial set of cards. If your name is blue, you've let me know that you received the cards you will use to make atcs. If your name is in purple, I've received your finished atcs. Orange they are in the mail and finally if your name is red, you've received your swap cards. If you need to withdraw I’ll just pull your name.

    Hi, I’m very interested. I love philosophy psychology, archeology, history, linguistics and that’s enough of my neediness for now. ;-)
