Yep...you'll be seeing many spots before your eyes! :D

Pointillism is the optical mixing of color.

Using tons of tiny dots of color you create a full color work which, when looked at from a distance, your eye will blend the colors together.
Although this is time-intensive, the results are well worth it.
Media for this is of course those that lend itself to this technique..
ink...paint...fine marker...etc.

Sooo...are you up for the challenge??

*I only ask...Firmly...that they be here in my hands ON TIME!

Please note that I've given a bit more time due to recent events. Originally it was 3/15....I've extended it to 3/21

*For international...I'll pay postage....but PLEASE include an addressed envelope or clearly written label.
*All others...please include a self addressed envelope with proper postage..or loose stamps. *Please remember your username on ALL pieces and envelopes!

*itrader ratings will be given when I receive your cards.
I'll pm you with my address when you sign up!

Alright everyone!!!
We've come home :yes:

I've gotten the swap thread set up and hope all info is correct. Let me know if there are any changes.
Please note the Due Date has been extended from 3/15 to 3/21. Hope this helps!
I will NEED to have them on time since I will be going out of town again less then a week after that date. I'd like to have all cards swapped and mailed before then.

Hope everyone has found our new home.
Please check in when you arrive and let me know you're here! ;)

Glad to see folks finding their way back :)

While I was out of town I received more cards!
Lemay, Maryannf, and Catharinejo....Your fab cards are here!!
As you let me know you've arrived here and your itraders become active, I'll leave you your trader ratings.

02-21-2008, 10:48 AM

Since we've changed our home it has come to my attention that some people have also changed their names!
This is wonderful if it helps you to get a fresh start.....however....
if your name is different from what I have in the list above, Please let me know.
I will keep the original name and add the new name so that people will not get confused when receiving their returns.
Please take note of name changes above.

02-23-2008, 07:01 PM
More cards! Razziebone...your cards arrived today.
I haven't checked all...but some people don't seem to be here with us yet.
If you know where to find them, or know of another name the have.....please let them know to register and check in with us :)

I love these little points...


03-09-2008, 07:00 PM
Wow Anne they are amazing! You are so talented :) I especially adore the boats one....wow

03-09-2008, 07:39 PM
AnneY your cards are beautiful I love the boats and the tree's n sky view. That sky is amazing.

03-13-2008, 12:20 AM
With a week left to have them here.....I'll be sending out a group reminder. Hopefully we'll make it.
I believe we've lost some players during the move as well.

03-13-2008, 04:45 AM
I lost players in my swap too it's going to happen

03-13-2008, 09:03 AM
Yes. I'm not surprised. This seemed to have happened to everyone. Luckily...the people missing hadn't sent their cards in yet....so we won't have that problem.

03-16-2008, 02:59 PM
Maxie23...Your cards arrived yesterday!!

03-18-2008, 03:01 PM
AnneY....you cards have arrived!!! They're beautiful!

We're almost there. *fingers crossed* that they make it in time :)

03-20-2008, 12:16 PM
When the other site closed I didnt know what was going on due to health issues in my family. I have them but they will get there a few days late. I had no idea the swaps were carring over to this new site and im sorry for that. Im just glad Elena contacted me about it being open and the swap I had with her as well. If you still want me to send them please contact me soon and I can get them out thanks..

03-20-2008, 04:17 PM
liblue...PMing you now.

03-20-2008, 04:28 PM
Slrandom...your cards have arrived!!

03-20-2008, 04:47 PM
I know that the last two envies were mailed quite a while ago but are coming from a further distance.....so, with any luck, they will be showing up any time now!!

03-20-2008, 06:52 PM
Last time I sent you an envie, it only took a week (I'm amazed my records are that good... !).
Ah well, if they don't arrive on time, go ahead and swap out the rest.

03-20-2008, 08:30 PM
inkleaves....I think you simply got lucky last time!
Even Canada to me takes every bit of two weeks.....sometimes more. Let's just cross our fingers and see what happens. We still have a chance.

03-21-2008, 02:15 PM
Awesome news.....the mail just arrived and "both" of the last two have made it.....exactly on time!!!!
Bubblecup and inkleaves....we're all set!! YAY

I'll be swapping them out this weekend and will have them in the mail by Mon or Tues at the very latest because I'm going to be out of town starting Wed. We've completed this in perfect timing!!! Thanks everyone :)

03-21-2008, 04:36 PM
Whew! wipes brow...

Thanks Wanda! Enjoy your retreat :)

03-21-2008, 08:29 PM
Oh....I will. My husband is a yacht broker and he'll be at a show in Palm Beach....so I'm going to that. THree days after I get home I'll be flying out again to have a great four day artsy weekend with a bunch of people at this site. It's in the "rolodex sleepover" thread.
I'm sure we'll all be posting many pics for everyone when we return. :)

03-24-2008, 10:44 AM
OK....I've sorted all the returns and they are ready for the PO.
Will have them in the mail this afternoon.
I'm afraid that some of the folk who were involved still haven't made it to this site.....so some of you may not hear who your cards went to for a while. I have included a card with the address for this site....so, hopefully they will find us :)

All sent out!! :)

03-24-2008, 03:17 PM
All right! Patiently waiting.

I do know that not everyone who has received their cards has posted in this thread ...so, be sure to check your rep points. You may find who has your work from that! :)

03-29-2008, 08:08 PM
I'm still waiting for my cards. ..*smile*.. I'm sure they are off sight seeing.

03-31-2008, 09:34 PM
Hello wme133, I received an ATC in the Pointillism swap that I am trying to located the creater of. It is of a ship w/tall sails, on the back it says: Jena Perkins, Artcards, hosted by wme133, 2008. I sent rep points to Artcards (thought this was the user name) and she replied back that she was not in the swap?????? Thanks for any help you can provide, sincerely, Maryannf

03-31-2008, 09:52 PM

04-01-2008, 05:34 AM
Jena Perkins, Artcards, hosted by wme133, 2008
Artcards is def Jena Perkins! So you have def got the right user there...strange that she isn't in the swap but it is possible she did a pointilism card for another swap hosted my WME and she mixed them up??

04-01-2008, 05:35 AM
18 Artcards
She is in the swap, number 18

04-01-2008, 08:01 AM
She has even posted in this thread...

04-01-2008, 02:53 PM
I had a moment of getting X's instead of 'I' too! I had to re-boot to get rid of them!

04-01-2008, 06:02 PM
Don't worry about the X's ladies.....that was just our funny little mods playing with us for April Fools Day...lol

04-01-2008, 08:35 PM
