Welcome to this Teamwork PC
In this swap we are going to make 1 mail art pc with 3 or 4 swappers.
I will explain the way we do this.
The swap will come back every first friday of the month, you can join as much as you like, and skip once in a while if you don't have time.
Starting a new card
Take a piece of cardboard of 10 x 15 cm (or close to this size),
On the backside you write your own name and adress.
The left side (message side) you will divide in 3, 4 or 5 compartiments. Use the first compartment to write the swapname, a small message and your swap id.
Now the front side of the card.
On the front you make a base on wich your partner (and their partner in the next round) can add their own bit of art. You can use any medium you like and can make it as simple or complicate as you wish (It's YOUR card)
You do not divide the front side of the card in sections. Every swapper will have the whole card base to work on.
Send your card in an envelope to your partner in the swap.
If you recieved a card in previous swap
If you have a card from a previous swap with some art on it, you will ad your own art on the frontside. Do whatever you want with the card. Don't be to carefull and only glue images next to the others, It's totaly ok to change up the card if you feel like it. Feel free to use layers and cover parts of what other swappers added.
On the backside you write the swap round number, your id and a small message in the next empty compartment.
Send the card in an envelope to your next partner.
!!Please be carefull!! Do not send an unfinished card back to the original starter (the one whose adress is on the card)
If your swap partner is the same one as the original starter of the pc, just start a new card of your own, and keep the other one for the next swap. It's ok to have 1 or 2 postcards in storage for the next swap. Or you can send a card that you have in 'storage' from another swapper.
You may use any medium you like, paint, mixed media, drawing, collage, watercolour, stitching etc. Just make sure everything sticks to the card and it can make the trip naked when finished. Use pretty things, (no kiddie stickers please)
When you are the last one to work on the card
If you fill up the last compartment with your info the card is finished. You then stick a postage stamp on it and toss it in the mailbox. This does not count as a swap! As the card will not go to your swap partner, but the original starter.
In the next round you can start a new card of your own, or if you have one, use the card(s) you have in 'storage'.
When you dicide not to participate in any more rounds, you can wait until you get a 'homer' card and not start a new swap with a new card. Or send the card(s) you have to me, and I will keep them in rotation. DO NOT toss any unfinished cards out!
It's ok to skip a swap or 2, just make sure the cards are send a long some day.
If there are any questions please ask!
English is not my first language so I hope everything is clear!
I got the idea for this swap from @Wolfeagle in the amazing mail art group.
For this swap you need a rating from at least 4.98 and no unexplained 3. A 1 is only acceptable if your swap partner is not active anymore on swapbot and you have tried everything to make it right.
You can not have any late swaps on your dashboard when assigning partners. If you have a late swap with a good reason, you can message me and I concider to let you join. A message to me is in no way a garantee to being able to join with a late swap.
