I just hosted my frist swap on swap-bot after having participated to all of them. I decided to choose the "year of the horse" as a subject for an ATC swap. Here is the very cute ATC I received from Michele Martin:
On swap-bot, all members have a profile where they say what they like and don't like. Some swaps are then based on the profile of your partner: you have to send mail-art (or ATC) that will fit to the "like" list of your partner. For the last swap of this type that I participated to, both of my partners have selected science-fiction in my list of hobbies and they sent me these two wonderfull ATC.
First Stella Van Domburg from Neitherlands picked up my favourite movie (Forbidden planet).
And Dawn Edwards made this fantastic "doodle" ATC. I also share with you the very nice envelope that she used to send it.
In the profile of the partners I had to send to I picked up the fact that one likes gerber daisies and the other likes imaginary animals like unicorns.
As announced in my previous post, I am launching three new mail art calls at the beginning of the new year. First project: One word, one ATC Choose one word and create an ATC illustrating it. Only one contsrtaint (on top of the usual ones for ATC) the word must appear in the design. In exchange I will send you back my own interepretation of the same word. Received items are displayed at : http://onewordoneatc.blogspot.fr/ Second project: Poppies Poppies are my favourite flowers ! Received items will be displayed on this blog. Third project: the golden ratio Let's explore the link between art and the golden ratio. Received items will be displayed on this blog.
