Welcome to the first Altered Text and Artist Books Group Swap!
In this swap you create an Altered Text ATC for 2 swap partners on the theme of GROWTH or to GROW, using the Altered Text Technique. You can create your ATC in any medium you like (you need to start with a book page, the finished ATC can be either an original or a print or photograph of your original work - if a print it's best to mount it on card) - but please keep to the standard ATC size of 2.5" x 3.5".
Please send a message with your card - it's nice to give a little bit of information about the book your started with. Try to use a book not a magazine.
Itâ€™s both great and strange for me to see more people working with altered text. I first started using the technique about 15 years ago and in my naivety thought I had invented it!! I later discovered a number of other artists using the same method of working and became fascinated with Artists Books. I have really loved seeing swaps come up with my favourite way of working!
If you're not familiar with altered text, have a look at these (some are of my work, but might give you an idea of the technique)
Think about illustrating around your chosen text, maybe use collage, sewing, fabric, stamping etc etc.
