Ok boys and girls I have a new idea that I am going to head up on the forums. It is called swapping.
So what is an ATC? ARTIST TRADING CARDS are miniature works of art created on 2 ½ X 3 ½ inch or 64 X 89 mm card stock.
they are originals, small editions and, most importantly, self-produced. anybody can produce them.
the idea is that you trade them with other people who produce cards, either at TRADING SESSIONS or wherever you meet another ATC trader in person.
it is important that you meet other people in person to trade - i.e. it is ok to trade by mail or to participate in editions but the main purpose of this performance is the trading session and the personal meeting.
It's not about money: participants in trading sessions and editions should not be charged any money: the point of the project is the exchange of cards as well as personal experience.
So what I would like to do is anyone who is interested in swapping a hand made ATC in the Halloween theme, should list they are interested. We will send one ATC to whom ever asks for one. For instance like how we do the Halloween Card Exchange. You can choose to send to how many ever people you want to.
Google Halloween ATC to see different types of examples.
You can purchase the ATC cards at craft stores or make your own out of cardboard or heavy card paper. Remember to write your name on the back of the card, date and the name of the card. Example: Halloween ATC
This is a fun way of meeting new people and spreading the halloween cheer year round.
