Studio ATC

Studio ATC

A group for creating digital ATC's (Artist Trading Cards) If you are not familiar with ATC's, I highly suggest that you Google them to learn the history and rules, as we will adhere to the world-wide rules in this group. Sets that do not follow the rules will be allowed but will not be eligible to win any contests.
Here are some links for your convenience:
http://painting.about.com/od/paintingforbeginnersfaq/f/ArtTradingCard.htm
http://www.artist-trading-cards.ch/
 
The 3 main rules for ATC's are:
1. Must be 2 1/2 x 3 1/2 inches (64mm x 89mm) sized to fit in standard card-collector pockets.
2. Only to be traded...never sold
3. Info on back of card...Title, Date and contact info
(for our purposes, please title your card and put date in the description of your set, along with a link to the contest.)
 
General group rules include no obscenity, profanity, nudity, drugs/smoking, or negativity of any kind. Please, no evil, blood and gore. Those sets containing any of these mentioned will be deleted. All sets must contain a link to the contest and dated in description and must be originally titled. ("#1 2 3" "ATC" or "contest entry" is not a title) A TITLE gives your set meaning, and means a lot to me.
 
We are here to be creative, enjoy the creativity of others and share friendships. So have fun! I'm excited and looking forward to seeing your talented creations! Group created 5/25/15
Blessings and Love to all, Toni
 
PS As to sizing: Templates will be provided in contests details. Also, you can get a ruler from PV items and size your own. I did this by cloning and cutting the ruler into two pieces, one 2 1/2 and one 3 1/2. Then cut my paper to size and enlarged it to fit the design space. Hope this helps!

Fashionable Alterations Group Description:
 
Welcome! This group is for people with some Polyvore and design experience. This is not a group for a newbie. Please read this entire post before applying. Applications are reviewed weekly after contest judging.

HOW IT WORKS: We will provide at least 5 featured items (there may be more than 5) from which you must choose 3. With these items as your base, you will create your own unique set, totally altered from the original set. Do not copy the original set in any way or yours will be rejected from the contest. The sets must focus on the outfit. While backgrounds are welcome please do not use intrusive ones. Props should be tastefully picked and relate to your set. See our typical fashion sets as examples of appropriate background and props. Limit of 3 sets per contest. New sets only. Contest every week.

HOW WE JUDGE: Each set will be judged in its detailed format, appropriateness of outfits and related props. We will be looking for outfit workability and wearability, ie. could you really wear that top with that jacket? What would it look like as worn in its entirety? Is the set well constructed? If you've chosen to add background and props, are they appropriate? Overall appeal of the set? Do we like it? We don't play favorites and no one will win twice in one contest.

ABSOLUTELY NOT OR ELSE: You may not use templates in any sets submitted for contests. Such sets will get you a notice from the moderators in private the first time only. Anyone who submits sets containing any of these items a second time will be rejected from the group without notice..Any sets showing drugs, nudity, tobacco, violence, cruelty to animals or swearing will be rejected from contests and the group without notice the first time.

This is a fashion focused group. All sets submitted must be fashion sets. No interiors or other types are to be submitted to the group in general.

This group is for everyone who has enough experience in Polyvore to present a well designed fashion set for a young-to-mature woman. This is not a group for the overly young or inexperienced.

If you feel you are able to play by the rules, please join us and be welcome!
