Time for ATC Speed Swap #15!
This month's theme:
Prom Dresses or Ball Gowns
Sign-up by May 15th
Partners announced May 16th
Mail out by May 31st
Skill Level: 1 - Sprouting
Hosted by Cathy Calamas
This is the season for High School Proms in the US so for this speed swap, your two ATCs should feature a prom style dress or ball gown or fancy party dress.
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. You must be able to mail internationally to participate in this swap.
After 15 straight Speed Swaps, we will be taking a summer break and will start back up with Speed Swap #16 in September. Thanks to everyone who joined us along the way to make this so successful. We have lots of great swaps going on through the summer, to keep you busy, so be sure to join in.
Skill Level: 1) SPROUTING - Geared toward the artist who has recently begun their journey into mixed media, these swaps are open to all group members, regardless of experience. Participation is the key - caring and sharing in the spirit of friendship and fun. Every artist needs to understand that contributors to these projects can be of any level of artistic experience.
