Terrific Trees Swap

Returns have been sent out as of June 9!

Swap Due Date - June 2
Signup/withdraw date - May 19
Number of Cards - 3 for 3

I love trees! This swap is for any trees hand drawn or hand painted or anything hand created by you. I am basically trying to avoid stickers, stamps, and found images, or photos. Collage is okay if the elements are hand created. Any media is okay. If anybody has a problem with fabric or collage cards please PM me and I'll be sure and take that into account when I swap.

US residents please send SASE. International please send a clearly written address label and I will take care of envelopes and postage. PM when cards are finished and I will PM my address. Please put your user name and real name on the backs of cards and on returns envelopes/labels. Please put cards in protective sleeves. Late cards will be returned. Any questions post or PM me.

Thank you, thank you for including me~!

I love your fabric trees! And I'll say again, if anyone would rather not receive trees that are not strictly speaking "drawn or painted" they can PM me and I'll make a note. I guess I should have said hand "created".

Thank you for tailoring your swap for those of us with media preferences. I tried to respond to a hand-drawned swap last week, and it ended up as a comedy routine. First, I hand-drew the elements; then, I cut them out, used them as stenciles, created a collage background, & glued the bug pieces on the background. Darn! No longer hand-drawn... so I started again. OK. It took 6 tries to get 3 mostly drawn. I guess that I'm a collage artist.

Count me in. I love trees.

Sue W

I haven't done alot of hand drawn work, but I do love collage. So ... I would like to play please.

YellowDen
03-24-2008, 08:11 PM
Add me too!

TabLynn
03-24-2008, 09:02 PM
Thanks everybody, I will add you. Kat and Sue W, collage is okay but only if you hand create the main elements (the tree/s). Cut, paste and embelish as you will. As I said in the first post. No stickers, photos, found images, stamps etc, you get the idea. Any cards that do not fit the guidleines will be returned. If you aren't sure you can post the card and I'll make the call since this is a bit subjective.

kat

Here's my first effort. It's an adaptation of a scene from the highway between Louisburg, NC and Norfolk, VA.
The three white trees are Pyrus calleryan 'Whitehouse'. I believe they were bred especially to survive in urban areas with bad air quality. They are in bloom now and beautiful.

I'd like to draw some trees for you too, please.

kat, love the card. I especially like paper piecing.

TabLynn
03-27-2008, 05:58 PM
great start kat:)

trini70 I'll add you now:)

kat
03-27-2008, 07:10 PM
trini70
Paper piercing? Explain please.
Kat

TabLynn
03-27-2008, 08:03 PM
kat I think trini said "piecing" not "piercing", although that does sound intriguing.

kat
03-27-2008, 08:22 PM
Three more trees.
Kat

TabLynn
03-27-2008, 09:13 PM
Those are fab kat. I like the cut paper!

Hi Tab - please add me in. Thanks! Jackie :~]

TabLynn
03-28-2008, 11:49 AM
And with the last three, that closes it up! Welcome everybody. Now lets go make some trees!

TabLynn
03-28-2008, 04:11 PM
I had one last request to join so for real now we are closed. No, really, I mean it:)

kat
03-28-2008, 05:55 PM
Oops! Maybe I'm more Mentally at the Beach than I thought. :daydreaming: I figured paper "piercing" (perhaps wishful thinking) was like Scherenschnitte (German paper cutting). I sure would enjoy getting some more precise tools or skills for collage.
Kat

PD, I think anyone who has seen your tree cards would start a mutiny if I didn't find a way to squeeze you in. Plus, my tree collection has a big empty space with your name on it:) I'll add you in but seriously folks, this is the last or the mods will give me demerits for being a mushy softy.

Wendy

Our first two arrivals came in today! Thanks to kat and lilbad for their super submissions! Great start!
I try and leave itraders when I get the cards in so if anybody doesn't get an itrader from me within a day or two of me posting that I received your cards, then PM me so I get it taken care of. I don't want to forget anyone.

TabLynn
04-03-2008, 12:24 PM
I want to let everyone know that I will be out of town arp 16-23. I am going to Virginia Beach for my Grandmothers 80th bday. We are staying at cabins on the beach so my internet access may be limited. I will catch everything up when I return.

I just finished two more trees for the swap. I was experimenting a bit, loosening my style, trying new tree types and working on sharp foregrounds and out of focus backgrounds.

Tab,

I have everything packaged up and ready to mail Priority Mail.

They will go out tomorrow, and you will receive them on Thursday.

I would have sent them sooner, but I figured that I had some extra time, so I might as well paint an extra card for the swap hostess. Hope you like it.

Peace & Light,

Thanks David! We are doing ok on time still. The due date is a couple of weeks out yet:)

Yeah, I took photos and just need to find time to upload them!

TabLynn
05-21-2008, 04:42 PM
Well, mine are finally done. I chose to go more conceptual than my usual style. I based each tree on the personality of one of my children. Since there are four, I'm not sure how I will trade these out. Probably swap out three and use the fourth for prints for the bonus card I usually throw in when I do swaps.

WendyK
05-21-2008, 04:50 PM
They are all lovely, now trying to figure out your kids personalities

lemay
05-21-2008, 04:55 PM
They are all beautiful TabLynn!

miss
05-21-2008, 06:33 PM
Wow, Tablynn, those are gorgeous!! I especially love the fourth one.

TabLynn
05-21-2008, 06:35 PM
To clear up the mystery!

Tori is very artistic and creative and "fancy". She is also moody, dramatic and somewhat unstable emotionally.

Alex is very balanced and tough and has a sunny disposition that makes everyone smile but has a tendency to have an overblown ego and a bad case of male answer syndrome.

Zack is sweet and mellow and calm but he can be a little on the negative side and the mellowness can turn to laziness really quick.

Bella is vibrant and intense. Very bright and extremely determined. She has a wicked temper and can be prickly at times.

TabLynn
05-21-2008, 06:40 PM
I received cards from dddiam today. Quite a spectrum of styles and they are all fab! Thanks too for sending an extra!

TabLynn
05-21-2008, 10:21 PM
Tori's card makes me think of "The Fool" - a very high, spiritual card in the Tarot deck.

All four cards are great representations of the personalities that you describe. I love the way that you articulate your kids' respective personalities. You sound like a great Mom, who appreciates each of her children's unique qualities, and helps them grow from there (even though being a parent is not always a picnic).

- David

HA! Yeah the Fool is Tori all the way!

adriayna
05-21-2008, 10:49 PM
I just LOVE them Tablynn! Especially that second card. Wow!

Pixeldog
05-21-2008, 11:03 PM

How are the remainder coming along? Just over a week now till the cards are due in. I try to be pretty punctual in swapping cards out so any stragglers may end up back with their owners. I probably won't swap out till the following weekend so we still have time to get all the cards in. So far we have a great bunch:)

Our final set of cards from frogwings came in today! Glad they made it, it would be a shame to have to send these lovelies back. Thanks so much for the extra!

This means are cards are now in! My goal is to sort and get these postal by Monday. I'll post when they've gone out. Thanks for playing everyone. I should have left you all itraders as I received your cards, but if I missed you drop a PM.

I got everything swapped out and sent the returns out this morning. I swapped out three of my cards as usual and I made prints of all four and each player got a print of one of my cards, so three of you have two cards from me, one original and one print. Also, at the last minute, after helping me with the swapping and organizing, my 9 yr. old daughter, Tori, decided she wanted to include a print of a tree card she made called Starry Tree, for everyone. We kindof threw it together last minute but everyone got a Tori print as well. She just loves to share her art and she frequently pops cards in with my swaps just for fun. Hope you all enjoy it and the rest of your returns. Thanks!

Here's the Tori card. The print is kindof flimsy, cause we just did it for fun and didn't have time to back it and I wanted to get the cards out today. I thought it was cute anyway:)

I just received my batch today, and was surprised to see not 3 but 5 cards! They are all lovely! Tablynn, thank you so much for the print. The drawing is beautiful, and the print is of such good quality that I didn't even realize it was a print. And that is so sweet of your daughter to share with us!

Personal thank yous and comments will be on their way to Jazzie, Joyrip0 and Wendy.

And thank you to everyone who posted their cards in progress here on the thread. They were a delight to see :)

Thanks Tablynn for such a wonderful swap. My returns arrived in 4 days, thats a record! Mail doesn't go that fast across town sometimes. I see this big red "International First Class" stamped on the envelope, that must be like MAGIC.

I love the returns, thanks to dmnh, cgasque73 and trini70, and especially to Tori and Tablynn for adding in the extras!!!
