Many of my fellow SBers may be familiar with my SOC Ltr swaps. This swap is an ATC version of such - minus the letter.

My ATCs tend to be focused and organized because I generally create them based on a theme. This ATC is whatever comes to mind. It doesn't have to match, a theme is not required, it can be mixed media, and it doesn't have to make sense. However, this is NOT to say it doesn't have to be well done.

For this swap, you will create ONE ATC for ONE partner, based solely on stream of consciousness. Whatever enters your mind, no matter how random or nonsensical it may be to your partner, add it.

Example: ATC started with an autumnal background and features a drawn on banana and a bright pop of sequins.

This swap is open to all mediums. If you'd like to draw, paint, rubber stamp, collage, or a little bit of all of the above - that is fine. This is not an excuse to sticker slap

Where I am testing this idea out, my requirements are a bit stricter than usual.

-Must have completed a minimum of 25 Type 3 swaps
-Must have a rating no lower than a 5.00
-No late swaps on dashboard.
-If you are a known problem swapper, double profiler, heart beggar, drama llama, or non-rater, you may also be banned.
-Appropriate rating practices are expected.
-A well constructed / detailed profile is expected.
-Complete names and addresses expected in your mailing info.

How To
You May
-Method is creator's choice, BUT

You May Not
-Sticker slap
-Paste a print out

*Sticker slapping refers to just that . . . slapping a sticker on an ATC blank and calling it a day. A tasteful sticker used to enhance a well thought out and effort filled ATC is permitted.

Paste only a single print out
*This refers to merely printing an image and sticking it to an ATC blank and again, calling it a day. Printed images may be used as a means of enhancing an ATC or as the foundation for which one will build upon. ATCs are expected to be effortly made, no matter the means by which it is constructed.

In a Nutshell
*Copy and pasted verbatim from @renmagpie
• 1 ATC to 1 partner
• Create an SOC ATC. You may draw, paint, collage, or stamp out your ATC design but please NO STICKER SLAPPING.
• This is sender's choice so you can start creating now and have it ready to go when partners are assigned!
• Your ATC must be 2.5"x3.5" (64mmx89mm). Portrait or landscape orientations are both acceptable for this series.
• It must be created using a sturdy backing that will stand up to the artistic media you've chosen to use.
• It must be sent in a protective sleeve or small envelope of some sort.

The Administrivia
*Copy and pasted verbatim from @renmagpie
• Include the swap name as well as your username somewhere in the envelope. Yes, this is a requirement...
• Send on time. Rate promptly upon receipt. Sending late without communication warrants a 3 rating. Communicate and rate.
• Rate according to the Swap-Bot Rating Criteria. • If you are going to be late sending, make sure you let your partner and host know prior to the send-by date.
• Hearts are purely at the discretion of the rater.
• If you are flaked on, let me know. I will angel this swap after you rate a 1.
