Karla & Beth's Birds & Bonnets Vintage Workshop Swap
Here's what we're up to:
Decorate both sides of four 4” x 5 1/2” panels using at least one image or background from The Vintage Workshop collections on each panel.
After you sign up for the swap, we’ll send you a link and log on to a website where you can download, resize, digitally collage and print the images you’d like to use.
You can make your panels all the same or each one different.
You can use more than one image per panel, and you can use other collage materials, too. In other words, feel free to use your own accents, buttons, and trims to compliment the images we’ll send you. All digital collage is great, too. Or you can work digitally and embellish copies. Just about anything goes, as long as you use at least one of the Vintage Workshop images or backgrounds from the website we've set up.
Send your panels to us, and we’ll take all the swappers creations and assemble into one of a kind screens. You’ll get a fun piece of art back- a screen with panels made by four different swapping artists.
We’ll be photographing the finished screens for The Vintage Workshop, so please be aware that by participating in the swap, you are agreeing to let The Vintage Workshop use your panels on its website or in future publications.
The Images- The images for the swap will be available for download at a website whose address we will give you after you sign up. You will need to size and print the images you select to use to make your panels.
The Panels- 4” x 5 ½”, made of something in weight similar to chipboard or bookboard. The cardboard back of a tablet works great for this. Whatever you use, it has to be substantial enough that it can stand up as part of a screen, but thin enough to be hole punched.
Sign Up Date- Sign up by emailing Beth, using the email link on the upper left side of her blog. The deadline to sign up is April 18. After you sign up, I'll send you an email with instructions on how to access the images.
Receive by Date – We’ll need to RECEIVE your panels by May 19.
Cost- The cost for a padded envelope, mailing and materials is $5. The $5 needs to be included with your panels.
What You’ll Get
A unique four panel screens, with each panel made by a different player. We’ll mail the screens by Jun 1. The screen below is the style of screen you'll receive.
AND, we'll have prizes provided by The Vintage Workshop!
All swap players will be entered in a drawing for gift certificates for downloads from The Vintage Workshop, and these cool clutch purses. Karla and I each decorated one using Vintage Workshop images printed on their fabric paper and decorated with hot fix crystals.
My purse will include the black gloves and pearls- because they just seem like they belong together.
You can see Karla's here.
I've pretty much been a "print on cardstock" kind of girl, but these specialty papers are really fun.
