    Post TEXT ME ~ due May 12

    Due Date: May 12, 2022
    Withdraw by Date: May 1, 2022
    Number of Cards: 3 for 3
    Number of Participants: Unlimited
    Medium: Mixed Media

    Theme: TEXT ME
    Start by collecting some old book pages to use for your Artist Trading Cards. Decide if you will use the book pages to cover the full background of your ATC or use cut scraps to create your designs. The rest is up to you. If you are looking for mixed media techniques to try using book pages, I recommend searching on youtube for "Book Page Mixed Media" - lots of video options will appear with a wide range of options for you. Choose the ones that you already have all the materials for, no need to buy anything new. This will be a fun, carefree swap, where I hope you will learn a new technique and love the results!

    QOTD: “Art enables us to find ourselves and lose ourselves at the same time.” – Thomas Merton

    Details
    • Send 3 original artist trading cards (measuring 2.5” x 3.5”)
    • A 4th “hostie” artist trading card would be greatly appreciated but is not required
    • Add on the back of each card: your real name, username, date, city/state or country, swap name
    • YES: must use scraps of book pages to create each card (click HERE to see some examples of the possibilities)
    • NO: prints or digital
    • Upon receiving your cards, leave an iTrader for me, your host, and Reputation Points via this thread for the artists of the cards you receive

    Mailing
    • PM me for my address (if you mailed to me in the past, it is the same)
    • Send each card in individual sleeves
    • USA players: include 1 Forever stamp
    • International players: Send $1
    • Include an address label
    • I will provide envelopes

    LMK if you would like to get texty with me...

    Please add me.

    Does the text have to be English? And can the pages be torn and not cut?

    Hi NancyL, welcome to the swap! Those are great questions. The text can be any language. Yes, absolutely, the pages can be hand torn as well.

    In all the examples the text takes up a large portion of the card. Is it OK to use the text as a small accent?

    Bramble - yes, you can also use the text as accents, just make sure we can see them.
