Hi Everyone!

I noticed that most of the ATCs I receive are collage style (which are wonderful btw), but the reason I started making ATCs was to work on my drawing and painting skills. I loved that ATCs were little pieces of art to trade. So for this swap you're going to have to draw! You can use pen, ink, paint, pastel, oils, watercolor, whatever your heart desires, but it has to be all made by you!

You are going to have two partners, so just make one ATC for each. (That's a total of two ATCs, I'm starting small for this swap to see how people like it.)

It would be nice if you included a note as to why you picked the medium you did, what got you into art, etc. I love learning about what inspires other artists.

To enter this swap you must have at least a 4.8 rating and no 'no sends' in the last few months. Newbies are welcome with a filled out profile. This is a USA only swap. If I get a lot of interest, I'll make one that's international!

If you have any questions, don't hesitate to message me. I'm still new to hosting, so any suggestions on how to make this better would be appreciated! Thanks!

Hey Cosima, I will most likely start an international one, I'll let you know when I do. :)

I WAS JUST THINKING THE SAME about swapping ATCs! I joined to work on my creativity and to also recieve creativity. I'm guilty of slapping nothing more than paper (trying to be creative) on a couple of cards, but I feel guilty afterwards because it's too easy. I also enjoy when people take the time to actually name the cards with a title instead of just the name of the swap. I'm unable to participate in this swap due to a rough schedule, but I'll be in one eventually!!! Thanks for doing this swap - I feel better knowing I'm not the only one! =)

I am SO excited about this ATC! I love to paint and draw and that's the medium I use for all of my ATC's. I'm not sure if others appreciate my work because I get alot of "paper only" ATC's. I'm not a great artist or anything but I do take my time with all of my ATC's. I'm now experimenting with watercolor pencils too.
