Welcome

Hello and Welcome to the Swap Art Group!

This is where you can make and swap any kind of art, including but not limited to: ATCs, postcards, inchies, twinchies, bookmarks, dolls, jewelry and more! 

Visit the SWAP FORUM to learn about current swaps and previous swaps, as well as upload photos of the art you received in a swap!

This forum only appears within this group (and not in the "Forums" link on the paintbrush at the top of each page), so be sure to come back to the Swap Art Group to find the swaps you've signed up for. All of the swaps are posted in this Swap Art Forum. Only the 10 most recent discussions are shown below, but ALL of the discussions can be found in the Swap Art Forum.

IF YOU WANT TO HOST A SWAP: Click here to learn how to HOST a swap. Please follow the guidelines described as closely as you can.

Just a few simple guidelines:

  • Please keep all discussions relevant to swapping. Feel free to share tips and techniques related to specific swaps, and to post feedback for others on images that are uploaded.
  • If you are new to swapping, review the Guidelines on How to Participate in a Swap. To sign up for a swap, find that discussion and add your name and address to that thread.
  • If you sign up for a swap, please let the swap host know if you will be unable to follow through for any reason.
  • If you host a swap, review the Guidelines on How to Host a Swap and make sure you are comfortable with them. In your post, be sure to include details such as: theme, size/medium, last date for sign-up, date when swap partners will be posted, and date when pieces should be in the mail. Please post the sign-up list and swap partners in your initial post by clicking "Options" in the upper right of your post, then click "Edit discussion", then add the names to your post. Click the orange "Save" button when you are done.
  • Be friendly and considerate in your posts.

 

Thanks for joining & have fun!

 

If you're wondering, "What are ATCs"?

ATCs and ACEOs are small works of art that are 2.5" x 3.5" - the size of an average playing card. You can create them in any media you choose.

ATC stands for "Artist Trading Card" and ACEO stands for "Art Cards Editions & Originals". The only difference between them is that ATCs are intended to be traded (and not sold for profit), while ACEOs are intended to be sold.

I received my orange swaps. My swap was from Linda Barnett, she sent 2 ATC handmade with different little squares and the other with a hummingbird. She had them enclosed in a nice note. Thanks Linda very nice.
