....well, actually 4 friends (or multiples of 4) for an ATC swap idea of mine! You may remember this ATC concertina book I posted last fall. The picture above is how it looks unfolded,and the pictures below show it folded up on the left while the right picture shows it with just the cover open.
So my idea comes from thinking about all my creative friends throughout the world and how inspired I am by your artwork and how fun it would be to have a tangible piece of that artwork - a true celebration of the creative friendships we've formed in blogland. I thought it would be fun to collect ATC's from friends, add them to ones I've made, and assemble a set of them into concertina books similar to the pictures above and then send one book back to each of you. So are you interested? (Oh, I so hope that you are!!!!) What you would do is to make 5 ATC's (2 1/2" wide by 3 1/2" tall - portrait orientation) that represent "you" - your style, your favorite technique, your favorite image, or a word that means a lot to you right now - and to make it easy, feel free to make 5 that are the same - and then mail them to me. For instance, I'm sure mine would have some crayon glassine, maybe a vintage image, and probably some wonky sewing :-) After I've collected them all, I will mail back to you a set of the group's 5 ATC's in a concertina book! If you'd like to participate, leave a comment with a way to contact you by email (unless of course I already know it or if you have an email link on your about me area of your blog) and I'll give you my mailing address. Leave any questions as well, and I'll answer those, of course. Once we have our group of people, I'll set a date for you to send the ATC's to me. Hope you'll join me!
