    ATCs: Trash to Treasure 23 ~ Due May 10, 2022


    Swap Requirements


    This swap is a mixed-media collage challenge: Create ATCs from “trash” items that I will provide (paper, book pages, tape, photos, ephemera, assorted scraps & materials, etc.).


    You must use at least 3 trash items on each card. Be willing to think outside the box and use items in different and new ways. Each envelope will have the same types of items. Some items are identical for all players; some items are of the same type but slightly different. You'll likely need to supplement what I'm sending you with materials from your supply. Go for it! Don't randomly past items onto your card; create an artistic theme.


    This is a no-withdrawal swap. You won’t know what’s in the envelope until you receive it. If you request and receive an envelope, you are required to complete the swap. No cards, no communication may result in a neutral iTrader.


    PM me your mailing address so I can send out your trash items.


    Swap is 3 for 3 cards. Host cards are not required, but will be treasured should you choose to send one.


    Each card must be 2.5" x 3.5" inches and on a sturdy base. You may have curved edges or shaped corners if you wish, but no coins or other unusual shapes. Cards must be protected in sleeves. If you cannot obtain sleeves, a cut-up card page or small baggie is acceptable.


    Trash materials can be altered in any way: shred it, singe it, or glue it mosaic style if you like. You can rip it, paint it, turn it around backwards, modify it. You can use it as a tool. But you must use it somehow. Please identify the items you used on the back of your finished cards.


    We all have different skills so please send work you are proud of. I will do my best to swap effort for effort.


    All cards need to be labeled with your real name, and your AFA username so others can leave you their thanks via YouRocks.


    TO SIGN UP


    Post to the thread to sign up. State that you have read all the details and that you are aware that this is a no-withdrawal swap.


    Once you have messaged me your address, there is no withdrawal.


    POSTING TO THE THREAD


    ~Please post to the thread when you have received your trash items.
    ~We all love seeing creations along the way. If possible, please post your cards in the thread and list which trash items you have used.
    ~Please post to the thread when you have mailed your finished cards to me.


    MAILING YOUR CARDS


    ~Send a label with your name and address legibly printed on it. I can provide envelopes.
    ~US Players: Send 2 forever stamps—one to reimburse me for the cost of mailing you the trash envelope and one for mailing your returns to you. I will take care of any additional postage, if necessary.
    ~International Players, please include $2 U.S. OR 2 Global Forever stamps, which will cover my initial mailing to you and your returns. I will take care of any additional postage if necessary.
    ~I live in New York. If you’ve mailed cards to me in the past, my North Babylon address is correct. Please allow sufficient transit time. Late cards will be returned to sender and a neutral iTrader given.


    AFTER YOUR RETURN CARDS ARE RECEIVED


    When you receive your returns, please post in the swap thread that you have received them. Don’t forget to leave an iTrader for me and You Rocks! the other artists. It is always nice to tell the player which card you received, too.


    Any questions? PM me or post it to the thread as others may have the same question but are too shy to speak up.
