Frida Zetti Swap

Sign-up/Withdraw: 1 April 2008
Cards Due: No later than 5 May 2008
# of Players: 95 US 5 International
# of Cards: 3/3 6/6


I love Frida Kahlo and never tire of creating her image and seeing how others see her. This swap will be for ORIGINAL HAND DRAWN COLORED PENCIL OR PAINTED WORK ONLY. Lets see Frida in a different light....Zetti her to your hearts content. I do ask that your cards are a likeness of Frida not just a drawn image that is named Frida.

For a look at "Zettiology" you should try www.teeshamoore.com. She is thought to be the start of it all....

The swap will be for 3 for 3 or 6 for 6. Please put your work on good quality sturdy card stock/Bristol Board, watercolor paper etc. Please do not use copy paper or the backs of boxes. As always do your very best work.

Put your address on your return envelope with the same amount of postage you used to mail your cards to me. Your user name and the swap name should be on both your envelope and cards.

Swap will not be held for late cards.

No more than 5 International Players for this swap. I will pay for return postage For International Players. An extra card would be appreciated but not necessary to join.

*******PLEASE PM ME TOO IF YOU WANT TO JOIN. I HAVE MISSED SEEING PEOPLE'S REQUEST...I APOLOGIZE TO THEM AND DON'T WANT IT TO HAPPEN AGAIN.

I drew a card last night (started one) then came back this morning to see 'colored pencil or painted only'.

Can we not use markers?

Here is the one I started:

wme133
02-27-2008, 12:08 PM
I can't imagine that marker would be a problem....but I guess we'll wait for the answer. Mine are pencil & marker.

DADAology

Annette

OriginalYouth
03-17-2008, 12:31 PM
Glad they arrived! Are you posting feedback at the end of the swap instead of as cards arrive?

DADAology
03-17-2008, 01:39 PM
I'm sorry I didn't mention that. Yes, I will post feedback when I send the card on their way....That way I do it all at once and don't miss anyone.
Annette

DADAology

DADAology

If everyone has a flickr account I suggest we post our cards there as our ADMIN has suggested. I can't get to that account at work so I will have to upload my cards at home...(guess I should be doing that anyway huh?) Each time you move there are always a few "bugs" LOL

My cards are on their way to you. There is an example of one of the cards in my gallery.

Dada-thanks for the kind comment about it!

DADAology
04-03-2008, 09:53 AM
I wish I could loosen up when I draw, I'm still very ridged. I love the free flowing style you have...I do keep trying...maybe one day. I'll let you know when they arrive.

ElectaBlue
04-03-2008, 09:59 AM
Thank you for saying you like my style. I think it is free flowing because I don't like to plan it out and I wish I could do more realistic drawing, like you do so well. I am sure that I could if I would work on it, but I get so frustrated and stressed when I try too hard!

DADAology
04-03-2008, 10:03 AM
Ha understand stressed....not planning it out is working for you!!! Love it.

ElectaBlue
04-03-2008, 10:36 AM
Thank you again for your comments! I know that I looked at your Frida zetti cards and was so impressed that I almost redid my cards because I didn't think they lived up to the details and quotes that you put on your cards.

DADAology
04-03-2008, 10:59 AM
Yours will be just wonderful...Remember.....YOU are your worst critic...

DADAology
04-04-2008, 10:34 AM
Electablue's delightful cards arrived yesterday....thanks for the extra card....
If Frida could see all of these. She would love it...

Hey, My cards got returned to me for 'insufficient postage' :( I used really OLD stamps, instead of newer ones. I am So sorry, I feel really bad and really stupid about this. I would send them out again, but I do not want to hold up the swap.

DADAology
05-04-2008, 09:31 PM
I sent you a pm too. You still have time....we have two weeks to get them all out...so if you get them in the mail tomorrow it should only take 2 to 3 days. That would be okay....I'm sure everyone else wants your cards in the mix....they are always sooo good.

We can wait a couple of days....
