Amazing Mazes! Swap

Swap Due Date - June 25th
Sign up by date - June 1st
Withdraw by date - June 24th (just communicate please!)
Number of Items - 3 for 3
Number of participants - 12


We all love mazes! You can draw, paint, or make your ATC with mixed media. It's up to you whether you draw parts of a maze, being inside a maze, or - if you're feeling particularly creative! - design a maze yourself for the receiver of your ATC to complete! Please remember that these are Artist cards, so themed and illustrated mazes only please, no line drawings.


Postage and packaging:
No bulky embellishments please! I live in the UK so please send your cards with plenty of time before the due date. PM me for my address.
US Players: To cover return postage I ask that you please include a dollar bill
UK/International Players: please send enough stamps to cover return postage.

Please remember to include on the back of your cards:
Real Name
Place of Origin
Swap Name

Please send in your best work, something you would be pleased to receive in return - I will attempt to swap effort for effort. No stickers please. Don't forget to protect your cards in plastic sleeves. A host card is much appreciated but not required!

Feel free to post your ATCs to the thread - it's always great to see what other people are doing! And enjoy!

If I had seen this just a tad sooner, I'd have been my first first signer-upper. May I join your swap? This sounds soooooo fun! If so, then your swap will be my first second signer-upper.

More beautiful cards have arrived! I've updated the list on the front page :)

Cobalt Blue
06-06-2011, 06:23 AM
Lovely mazes, LadyDoor! I shall keep an eye out for them!

06-06-2011, 10:32 AM
Can I just tell you how I have been OBSESSING over this swap?! It's a good obsessing. I've always been a maze person, and this has been so fun to create. I just finished my last maze (in pencil) last night, so now to go back and make them pretty.

Cobalt Blue
06-06-2011, 08:36 PM
:D Good to hear that you're enjoying the swap, ScrapPea! To be honest, I'd never made an actual maze before - until my mom told me otherwise and showed me one I made when I was 8 - but Xyleus and I were talking about them and it got me revved up! I'm looking forward to seeing everyone's work and I hope you guys are looking forward to your returns too!

06-13-2011, 11:21 AM
My cards are done, and I *thought* I had your address. I'm PM'ing you for that.

Cobalt Blue
06-14-2011, 09:37 AM
Hey everyone, it's less that two weeks to the due date so please be ready to send your cards soon! Remember that I live in the UK! I'll be PMing those who haven't asked yet for my address so that you'll have the address ready.

Thanks guys!

06-14-2011, 11:40 PM
My cards launch for the great yonder tomorrow (Weds).

Cobalt Blue

Rec'd some cards this week, only just had a chance to access the net! Only one more set to wait for and then it's on to the swapping!

Cobalt Blue
06-26-2011, 10:19 AM
Okay! Everyone's cards are here, the due date is passed, and I can commence with the swapping! Won't be long guys before your returns will be on their way! :)

Cobalt Blue
07-01-2011, 01:18 PM
Cards will be posted out on Monday :) I'm going to take a picture for the swap gallery before sealing them up, and I'll post up the pictures of my ones too (completely forgot that I only uploaded the one!) so keep an eye out!

EDIT: These were the other cards I made, although the glaze isn't picked up by my scanner. They're all packed away now!

Cobalt Blue

Just waiting on a few addresses but they're ready for mailing tomorrow! Should be around a week 'till you guys receive them - I'm in the UK - and, uh, sorry about the boiler ad leaflet I packaged them with...I have tons and hey, at least there's a cute dog on it?

Anyway! Thanks so much to everyone taking part, and keep an eye out for your returns!

A-maze-ing cards arrived from Kat (the red maze, sneaky artist you!), 7tattoos (I adored your seaweed maze when I saw it!) and rockinrobin (love the stars!).

Cobalt Blue - you drew some great cards--I was such a Pac Man addict as a kid--and hosted a wonderful swap! Thank you.

07-14-2011, 12:40 PM
I received some great mazes! (sorry, I'm on vacation or I'd have posted sooner.) I got a-maze-ing cards from ScrapPea, SerendipityUNT, and rockingrobin. THanks to everyone and the host for a wonderful swap!
