Victorian~Vintage Quintessence

Victorian~Vintage Quintessence

Our beautiful logo was created by Ellen Hilart. She is such a fabulous artist both in real life and on Polyvore. Thank you Ellen.
 
There are several Victorian~Vintage groups on Polyvore. I wanted to create one that is the essence of them all. Quintessence means the most pure essence or most perfect embodiment of a thing or being. This group will be anything pertaining to the late 1800's to the 1930's. This will comprise The Victorian Era, Edwardian, Art Nouveau, Deco and very early Vintage. I want this group to be the best on Polyvore for sets that will relate to the Victorian~Vintage era. I want to see sets that encompass life, love, memories, family, children, Victorian portraits, etc of this magnificent era. I will accept fashion sets, however they must have some form of art in them and must be either Victorian or Vintage. I will be glad to answer any questions, and provide any guidance along the way. This should be a wonderful group and I plan on keeping it fun too.

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!
