ATC Speed Swap #7
This month's theme: Opposites
Sign up by September 15th
Mailing list announced September 16th
Skill level - All
Hosted by Cathy Calamas
My intention was to make this next swap an Autumn Leaf swap but then I realized that a good portion of our members, our Down Under friends, are getting ready to embrace Spring. The exact opposite of us! So, opposites it will be.
Your two ATCs must incorporate the opposites theme, ie. short/tall. For example, if you pick short/tall, your ATC could show a giraffe and a mouse together. Each ATC must show both word ideas on the ATC, not short on one ATC and tall on the second ATC.
Instead of image links, I am going to give you a list of word associations to inspire you, hopefully ;)
dark/light, stormy/calm, thin/wide, fast/slow, front/back, open/close
scary/soothing, happy/sad, busy/lazy, hot/cold, sweet/sour.
Each month, on the 1st, we will announce a theme or technique for your ATCs. Anyone interested will have until the 15th to sign up. The list will be randomized, announced on the 16th, and you will mail one ATC directly to each of the next two people on the list. A total of two ATCs each month for the speed swaps. You don't have to sign up every month, just when you feel like it or like the theme or have the time.
We'll have brand new creative excitement each month and this will keep postage for each of us to a minimum as long as you don't make bulky ATCs. But of course that will be your choice. It's approximately $1.20 to mail internationally for one ATC in a note card envelope.
New themes will be announced on the 1st of each month.
