Apr - May 2017 "Turning Japanese" ATC Swap

Hi Everyone
With the first swap of the year behind us - and very
successful it was too - it's time to move onto the
Apr - May Swap.

The theme for this swap is:
Turning Japanese
Feel free to interpret the Turning Japanese theme in any way you like but your ATC must include:

                      A background that is Japanese inspired, and
                      All things Japanese .

          1.   Australian papercrafters are encouraged to participate in this ATC swap.
          2.   If you commit to swap please, out of consideration for all the
                participants please meet the set guidelines.
          3.  To participate, write a comment to add your name to the list of participants
                below and I will email you my address details.
          4.   Post your ATC's and a stamped self addressed envelope to me on or by
                the posting deadline (see 7 below). I recommend that you put your ATC's
                into a plastic 9 pocket protective sleeve to protect them from bad weather.

Deadline dates:
          5.   Registration list for swaps opens Sunday 2 April and closes
                Sunday 9 April.
          6.   To register to participate please leave a comment before the closing date.
                I will then confirm the number of ATC's needed to be made for the current swap.
          7.   Swaps must be in the mail to me by no later than Friday 5th May (as mail can
                take a business week to arrive to me depending upon where you are located)
                and I should receive them all by Friday 12 May at the latest.
          8.   I will post swaps received on Monday 15 May at the latest so you should
                receive your ATC's shortly thereafter.

Participation governance:
                ATC swap numbers will be limited to ten people per swap.
                Founding members have automatic entry into each swap (but still need to
                confirm their participation for each swap).
                With the exception of founding members, participants will be eligible to take
                part on a 'first in' registration basis.

I do hope you will participate - any questions feel free to leave a comment.

What's an ATC?
An ATC is the acronym for Artist Trading Card.
For anyone new to ATC's it's a small piece of original work that measures 2.5" x 3.5".
There is no right or wrong way to create an ATC - you just need to stick to the
measurements and the rest is up to your imagination.
