January Hybrid Atc Swap

153 posts in this topic

Good thinking, Carla. Here's some ideas -

 

New life or new beginnings

Months (like you can scrap January, Feb, etc)

Growth, growing, etc

Happiness (can be widely interpreted)

Places, countries, etc

Vintage

Color (again widely interpreted)

Animals

New Technique (try a new technique - digital or hybrid)

Weather

"Quotable" (use a quote on your card)

Black & white (or black & white with one splash of color) This one might be too initmidating - and I mean to ME)

 

Oh my so sorry for taking up so much space and ideas - my brain cells are on high speed and a friend contributed an idea and I looked through some ATC samples.

Whew.. Now I need a rest......

 

WOWSERS Marilyn you're on a roll :2468who-do-we-appreciate:

 

Lots of ideas there Carla :dancingelephant:

 

How about "Pets" :gathering:

I actually like all of those and thought of Fantasy and Fairy Tales as well. My brain cell (pretty sure I'm down to one now) is not as active as it once was!

 

OOOhhh I LIKE those Ann - I was remembering how much fun it was to do "Flights of Fancy" so these would be the same and kinda magical!

Thinking while I wait...and wait...and wait.... How about Hardware Art? Every time I visit Home Depot or Ace, I see little bits and pieces that I think should be repurposed to something artistic.

Love that idea, too Ann.. I hope your cards come soon, but keep thinking anyway.

I GOT mine - they CAME!!! SO excited and yes, one is more beautiful then the other and yet all different.

I just got home and was so tired, but found my mail and that gorgeous package perked me right up.

THANK YOU! to all... Such special work I am so proud to own and be a part of.

 

And, thank you Carla for taking care of them all and teasing us along - it was fun.... Appreciate all your efforts.

Mine arrived today!! :bouncing-frog::bouncing-frog::bouncing-frog:

 

Wow... I thought the last bunch were the best ever, but that's because I hadn't yet seen this bunch. You gals did an amazing job. They are so lovely they actually brought tears to my eyes. What a talented group of artists you are!

 

Carla, thank you for organizing us. And thanks, Angela, for the video. I'm going to watch it now. :)

If Angela has hers, can mine be far behind. I'm going to watch the video after today's mail comes...whether I get the cards or not. Old people cannot afford to wait for things to happen!

Since you aren't old, I guess you can wait. Patiently. :lol: I will tell you that there's glitter involved.

I have shown many people (including my watercolor class today) my page of cards and they all have been quite impressed - in awe -- of the gorgeous work you all have done.

Just wonderful, thanks again all.....

I completely agree, Marilyn! Are you all as anxious as I am to get started on the next round? Another idea I had was to include something "found", a re-used, up-cycled piece.

Oh Ann, I like THAT idea, too - very cool thought. It is going to be VERY hard to choose. And, yes - me too. Usually I'm a slow-poke (& of course I will be again) but I am anxious to start. I am so into these little cards.

And Sherry me, too - still bringing those cards around and showing people and each one of them was appropriately amazed and totally appreciative of these tiny works of art.

Oh, Jemima! That's awful! I hope the floods aren't causing too much damage.

 

Look for the new thread for the next swap early this week. I'll take all your ideas from this post and either have a poll or pick one from a hat!
