Since it seems people are having troubles with scanners, etc. I am posting all the ATC's I did. Some are a little crooked, I'm not too good with a scanner.









this last was a bonus for indie anna for organizing this!

I can wait no longer! Here is scan of the one card I have received so far. It's from Adlib, called Bare #6. I love it! Kiss



Thanks, Adlib: she's a "beaut"! I can't wait to see the rest too!

You guys ROCK!!! Yesterday was a RED-HOT day for ATCs!!! A bevy of beauteous babes were waitin' in my mailbox. I hereby retract any nasty things I may have said about Canada Post.  Wink

Here they are:

From dahlea (who was ever so sweet and sent me a BONUS!!! Thanks so much, dahlia! Plus it said "MAIL ART MOB..watch your back" on the envie!!)



La Crafty Chica, from craftyferret...This lovely gal came in an elegant and fashionable little striped envie, too!



I changed into my cowboy avatar for this one...A swanky TEXAS pinup from aliceversary with a very cool silhouette/airbrushed background!



And, total bonus!!! The "Venus with a Venus" Pinups from too-clever hijole...(these also came in cool little envies)



And a detail of the "peek-a-boo" Venus...



BUT WAIT!!! There's more hijole to come...



(That gal's got a surprise hidden under her gown too!)

Amazing ATCs, guys. And great big Texas-sized thank-you to everybody!!!  Grin

Hey everybody! Hijole was kind enough to send me these fab. photos of the Build It Yourself ATC!! (YAY! Hijole!)  Kiss

I had asked Admin. Leah awhile back if it would be okay to post pics of the ATCs and other mailart in the Completed Projects area of the Papercrafts Forum and she said "sure!" so I have posted these pics in that section as well.

(The problem is...unless people are involved in the swap, maybe they do not know that the Swap Gallery exists yet Huh I think that a lot of hard work can go into ATCs and other mailart projects so we can legitimately post them in the Completed Projects area of Papercrafts!)
I hope other people will go ahead and post pics of their finished mailart projects in the Completed Project section of the Papercrafts Forum as well...after all: we all know how much time, effort and creativity goes into making these tiny masterpieces!!  Smiley

Here are are the pics:

The assembled ATC:



The assortment of pin-up backgrounds (and another shot of the assembled ATC in the centre at the bottom):



(That very shiny clear vinyl is responsible for the odd glare/texture in the photo!)

Here is the set of instructions I sent with them



And here are a collection of faux postage stamps that I designed for this project:



Stay tuned to the Craftster Pin-up Post for more great photos! Wink
