April ATC swap sign up!
« on: March 25, 2015, 08:22:03 AM »
I'm a little earlier than normal for this but I've got a lot going on over the next week so I wanted to get this up.
Send by date is April 14th

For April the image requirement is spring. Pull out any of your favorite springtime images you want to use! Flowers, trees, butterflies, you name it! It's up to you :)
And for technique requirement -faux tile! I will link a tutorial for this and I'm fine if you don't use glossy accents or diamond glaze. I know not everyone may have it

Here's the swap list!
Daniel to LeighAnn
LeighAnn to Heidi
April to Daniel
Sarah to Melissa
Melissa to Cindi
Cindi to Kathy
Heidi to Sadie
Sadie to Sarah
Kathy to April

I will join.  This is an interesting technique for an ATC.  I think the most thought is going to go into what image will work well with the technique and the small size.  Thanks for hosting!

LOL, Pug! I love your technique choice for April!

I agree with Heidi that choosing image(s) may take some real thot. And... Using the technique as given on the (great) link, also means that players may have to do some work so the final ATC is the 'right' size & the image(s) suitabley separated into tiles.

'Course there are other methods for tackling 'faux tile', but it's gonna be fun seeing how players/swappers deal with what's needed.

Not sure yet if I can join, but definitely considering it, LeighAnn.  O0 :smitten:

LeighAnn & I exchanged emails yesterday. We worked out a plan to allow me to join the swap fun. O0

Because (like Melissa) I don't know what April will bring with the house & such, I figured I'd better make mine while I could.

As I shared with Pug, I made 2 ATCs. One used pretty much the version in LeighAnn's link & wasn't as tough to figure out for the spacing as it might have been. The 2nd ATC used a technique I shared with Pug in the email. It's still 'faux tile', but a bit easier to do since it doesn't require cutting the image into pieces. LeighAnn liked the idea.

I'm mailing the ATCs to her today & she can decide how she wants to deal with them far as swappers go. ;)

Please sign me up!  I think my biggest challenge will be lining all those tiles up straight!  Hmmm, I know I've used a transfer technique ... using repositionable adhesive and book covering contact paper ...

Me too, me too.  This is gonna take a little thought to figure out what will work on an ATC to cut into yet smaller pieces......

Sorry, I've been MIA! We were out of town over the weekend and my kids are both sick now so I've been busy!

Kathy, you're not too late!

The send by date will be April 14th.

I updated the OP with swap partners O0
