    Abstract Torn Paper-Due Dec 2nd

    Due Date-Friday Dec 2nd
    Number of cards-3 for 3 or 6 for 6
    Number of players-unlimited

    Media- All paper must be torn. Youmust use plain paper without images and/or paper with text, such as from a book.


    I love the contrast of plain torn paper with paper shapes torn from a book page. Any language is acceptable. For this swap, your color will come from your paper. No paint or pens or ink allowed. Since it is an abstract swap, your shapes must not look like something. No flowers, fish, etc.

    Mailing info-I will provide envelopes for everyone.
    US players-send a label or paper with your mailing address and a forever stamp
    International players-send a label or paper with your mailing address. I will pay for your postage.

    Who is ready to make some abstract torn paper ATCs?

    I am lurking so I will be subscribed. I am really interested! I assume tissue paper (colored) would be acceptable? Its flimsiness can be hard to work with, but it gives a great effect.

    I'd love to see torn tissue paper. I usually use origami and/or mulberry paper. and I have a variety of old books with different foreign text.

    What about music pages contrasted with colored paper, or do you want to stick with only text pages?

    I'm going to lurk too. Is vellum okay? I have some that have muted shades of color that might look layered over other pieces.

    CiCi, I tried tissue paper and text. You can see the characters through the paper. It wasn't that hard to tear. I guess you have a little less control than with stiffer papers.
