View Full Version : Use Your Stash 4 - Tissue Paper/Napkins Due June 16, 2011

04-20-2011, 09:31 PM
2 SPOTS OPEN

DUE JUNE 16, 2011

Swap Due Date: June 16, 2011
Signup/Withdraw Date: June 2, 2011
Number of Cards: 3 for 3
Number of Participants: 30 maximum.
I will pay for postage for the first four international players.
Number of Participants: 30.

For 2011, I have decided to do a series of swaps to encourage everyone to actually use that stash that you have been collecting and saving for "something special". Guess what? Until you make art with it, it's just stuff.

So Part 4 is for those tissue papers and printed napkins you've been stashing. Use them as backgrounds, with beeswax, as a focal image, stamp,paint or draw on plain tissue, scrunch them up for a bit of texture and on and on. I know there are plenty of creative people around here who can come up with other fabulous ideas. Interested, but not sure what you could do? See Post 29 for links to Trish Bee's wonderful Techniques Zone with a number of cool things to do with tissue paper or napkins.

I will pay for postage for the first four international players.

Any medium is welcome-hand drawn of all sorts, painted in all varieties, stamped, collage, fabric, encaustic, and so on. See further rules below.

SWAP RULES

*All cards should be the standard 3.5" by 2.5".
*No heavy, thick, or bulky embellishments.
*Cards should be on heavy cardstock, chipboard, or some type of sturdy base.
*All cards should be different. Originals only-no copies or prints.
*No stickers as the focal image. I'd suggest avoiding stickers with the white border around them.
*If you want to use glitter, please seal the cards. I'm little too old to wear it these days!
*Please include you user name, real name, location, and swap name on the backs of your cards. Please include your real name and user name on the back of your envelope to me and your return envelope.
*Please send only work you are proud of and would like to receive in return. I can only swap out what I get. Don't just glue a piece of napkin/tissue onto a piece of cardstock. I will try to swap cards for those of a similar quality with a bit of randomness.
*INTERNATIONAL PLAYERS-I will pay postage for the first four players. All other international players must be able to include $1 US for return postage. If this isn't possible for you, PM me and we will work something out. Please include a self-addressed envelope.
*US PARTICIPANTS-Please include a self-addressed, stamped envelope with the same amount of postage as it took to send it to me. No meter strips. Please PM me for my address when you are ready to mail your cards. All cards are due in my hands by the due date. Late cards will be returned. Please mail early so they arrive on time. When you receive your cards for the swap, please remember to leave iTrader for me and rep points for the other players that you get cards from.
*Host cards are greatly appreciated as are extra postage, goodies, etc, but never mandatory.
*Please leave iTrader for me and reps and/or post your returns to the thread for the artists whose work you receive. This helps me know that you got your returns and lets people know who got their cards.

So who wants to play?

I'd like to play if you accept rank novices. It will be my first swap using napkins/tissues, and I have a lot to learn! I promise to do my research and practice, practice, practice before sending in my cards.

Sign me up please - I've got lots of napkins from a swap, and I've been waiting to be inspired to break out the beeswax and give that method another try! I experimented a little during the Learn-a-Thon and had great fun!

Welcome to SOTO, Evalila, Wil, Camilla, and Kate! I look forward to seeing what you come up with.

Wil, I think you mentioned in Map Madness that you coming back to the US so I will treat you as a US player. If that's wrong, let me know.

I intended it to be June 15th, but it's quicker for me to just correct the post than to get a mod to change the title. So it's officially the 16th now.

Here's another thing to try for this swap if you have old sewing patterns which are printed on a tissue paper. I use in collages sometimes as is and just incorporate the seam lines, arrows, etc into the design.

Cool! I have some of those around here somewhere.... I'll have to see what I can do with them. Could be interesting :)

Thanks for the suggestion!

Okay, just found that Wil will be overseas again when it's time for returns so there is only one more paid international slot open. Other internationals are more than welcome if they can send a dollar bill or a 98 cent US stamp.

I have had so much fun in parts 1-3 I can't miss out on part 4 - may I join?

A pair of shoes that I bought yesterday came wrapped in the box in a tissue paper map of the world indicating all their outlets - I might use that for this swap AND the maps in part 3

I added you to the list, Donnacr. That sounds like cool piece of tissue paper. 7 Gypsies had a great line of printed tissue including a map of a medieval town. Sadly, they discontinued them a few years ago

Nice work :)

I used the melted beeswax method. Two of the cards are on glossy paper (back of card) and the other two are on heavy drawing paper. I put some wax down first and then lay down the napkin and put some wax on top. I use an old iron set low and a beeswax stick. I work on a pad of newspaper print I picked up on clearance at a craft store

Cool - thanks. I'm planning on using beeswax too, I just wondered if you tried gluing or not. I think the beeswax puts a nice finish on everything :) Your cards are lovely!

For any of you in the States who have a nearby Tuesday Morning, this is a great source for decorative napkins and tissue papers. Check their clearance area since they often have napkins cheap.

I am so sorry, but I think I will have to withdraw, we are away housesitting at the moment minding some animals whilst owners away. A little too difficult to do the swap.

Sorry to see you go, Pauline, but thanks for letting me know.

So we have a slot open again.

EvilMonkeyGirl has had to drop out due to personal issues. Please send her some positive thoughts at this time.

So we have a slot available again.

GoldenWolf
05-05-2011, 10:19 AM
Quick reminders: Make sure that you cards are not tacky before you put them in sleeves if you are using beeswax or something like Diamond Glaze or gel medium to seal them. If I can't get your cards out of the sleeves, I can't swap them out.

Make sure the edges are sealed.

Please don't just glue a single piece of napkin or tissue paper on to cardstock. You need to collage other elements, paint, rubber stamp, draw, etc. I know some of the napkins have lovely designs already on them, but we want to see your art with the napkin or tissue as an element, not as the art by itself.

I know a lot of people don't follow the thread after they sign up so I will send out this reminder this evening ina PM to everyone. I know some of you are experienced in this type of art and could teach me a thing or two, but I am going to send it to everyone regardless of their level of experience so no one feels singled out. So please do not get angry!

tjs, I do not have your cards for this swap yet. I checked this swap and the map swap that I am going to swap out today in case they stuck in the wrong pile. I haven't gotten any text page cards yet so no other stacks to look in. I haven't gotten them yet. I haven't gotten today's mail though. Will let you know as soon as I do.

GoldenWolf
05-21-2011, 12:09 PM
Okay, it's too early for today's mail, but I remembered that I didn't check yesterday's mail because I was wipred out from traveling. tjs's cards are here. Thank you for the pretty napkin and the extra card!

I hope they do, Loiusezee. So far I have been pretty lucky with postal strikes so let's keep our fingers crossed!

Just a reminder, folks. This swap is due in one week on June 16. This is when I should have the cards, not the mailing date. I would like to swap out NLT than the 17th so I can mail these on Friday the 18th. So please just let me know if you have already mailed your cards or if you need to withdraw ASAP.

Thank you everyone for your kind comments. I started eight, and finished with six, and picked the best four out of them. But I need more pratice. I was disapointed with how dark most of them were turning out.

Mem73, these are due by June 16th so unless you have already done them, I don't think they will get here on time.

Sorry, guys. I forgot to post that I swapped these cards out Thursday night and mailed them before lunch yesterday. I'd be surprised if anyone got their cards today, but I'm sure some will by Monday.

Yay, glad to see that people are getting their returns already!

GoldenWolf

NOTE TO CANADIAN PLAYERS: I mailed your returns on Friday. I had to buy postage so the postal workers knew where they were going and processed them as usual. Now I have read here that the postal strike is nationwide and no longer a rolling strike anymore. I hope it ends soon so you all get your returns shortly. If they get returned to me, I will notify you and hold them until the strike ends and remail them.

My postmaster told me the larger post offices will hold the Canadian mail until they can mail them. Hopefully will be some time this week...

My cards came today from raineyday, wilopiooguta and catscradle - the cards are great, I'll leave rep points and iTrader later this week - just spent the best part of the evening sorting computer issues (with an interval to attend a music festival in which my daughter was playing flute and singing (not at the same time)) so I can't really face doing admin stuff tonight!

I won't be able to post my thank-yous because of the Canada Post strike. The cards are held up somewhere. But thank-you in advance - especially for the swap.

GoldenWolf
06-23-2011, 08:16 AM
Cecileb, I will probably keep the thread open a bit longer for our Canadian players to get their cards and post their thank yous. Hope the strike will end in the next week or so. I was able to mail them before the US Postal Service started refusing to accept them. They have not come back to me so I can only hope that they are being held safe and sound and make their way to you in due time.
