Christmas 2009 ATC Swap
Posted by Benice Kok
I've mentioned in my previous post of 27 November 2010, that Elna and I participated in an ATC swap last year.
Here are the five participating artists
Elna, Ilsé, Val, Claudene & Benice
The theme was an Advent Calendar and we divided the 25 days amongst the five of us, which meant that we all had to make 5 "copies" of 5 different ATCs - 125 ACTs in total!!
I also made a "cover" for each of the girls, using wooden angels that I've been saving for a special occasion, making it a total of 130 ATCs!?
The idea for this project came from a project on the 7Gypsies site and was designed by Sande Krieger. The girls were each given a parcel with all the "ingredients" needed for the 5 ACTs that they had to make, but could still decide if they wanted to stick to Sande's original layout, or make up their own...
"Cover" and ATCs 1 - 4
ATCs 3 - 7
ATCs 8 - 12
ATCs 13 - 17
ATCs 18 - 21
ATCs 22 - 25
Needless to say, we had a "tea" party with strawberry daiquiris and cupcakes to swap out our cards...
