Hand Drawn/Hand Painted "Stained Glass" Swap, Due June 30th


STAINED GLASS


I love stained glass and thought this would be an interesting topic for an ATC swap. I can sit and stare at stained glass for hours. Most of all, I think about the delicate business of putting stained glass together and have always wanted to learn how to do it. I'm not sure that I have the patience or the steady hand, but I can draw stained glass and have a lot of fun doing it.

So, break out those pencils, pens, markers, etc. and show me your stained glass. It can be just shapes, a stained glass window you admire, one that you'd like in your house, etc. The ideas are endless. I've include some examples of ones that I did.

MEDIUM(S)

Only hand drawn/hand painted are welcome. Please send in your best work. Something you would not be disappointed in receiving if it was sent to you.


INFORMATION TO PAY ATTENTION 2!

Players - when you receive your cards for the swap, remember to leave iTrader for the Host (me) and Rep Points (You Rock!) for the people you received cards from!

There are two ways to leave Rep Points:

1) Simply click on the link that I have created in the list of users in this post. Once their post is up just hit the "You Rock" button and leave your feedback!
2) Click on this link "How To Leave Rep Easily (http://www.atcsforall.com/forum/showthread.php?t=9494)" and follow the instructions.

Please PM me for my mailing address when you are ready to mail out your cards if you do not already have my address. If you do have my address, please note that it has changed, so you have to PM me for my address! LOL

ATCs will be sent out within 2 weeks of the swap closing date; June 30th. Late cards will be returned to the original artist(s).

All participants; PLEASE be sure to put your username and Swap Name on the mailing envelope, return envelope, and on all cards and labels. Also, be sure to write clearly on everything!

Cards are due to me by June 30, 2012. Please allow an ample amount of time for your cards to get to me, especially if you are an International participant. iTrader ratings will be given when I receive your cards.

Remember: We all want to be able to know who to give rep points back to. So, it is really important that you do not forget to put the following on the back of your ATCs:

1. Your username
2. Swap name
3. Title
4. Where you're from

An extra ATC in this theme for the host is appreciated, but not at all expected!


POSTAGE & MAILING

U.S. participants, PLEASE include a Self-Addressed-Stamped-Envelope (SASE) LEGAL SIZE Envelope (4 x 9 ) or a mailing label with your address for your returns with the correct amount of postage for returning your cards. Since we are only doing a 3:3 trade the postage should not be more than 0.90 for 3 cards. Remember to put your user name and swap name on the back of your envelopes!

The International participants; Please include a Self-Addressed-Envelope (SAE) LEGAL SIZE envelope (4 x 9 ) with the amount of postage, in US dollars, necessary to return 3 cards to you for your country.

PARTICIPANTS

Don't forget that participants have a hyperlink to their first post here in this thread. Just click on their name and it will take you to that first post so you can leave them an "You Rock!". Pink means your cards have been received and an iTrader has been left for you.

tlsexton0913 ... my husband has been doing stained glass since his son (now 42) broke a stained glass window in a built-in cabinet ... in a rented apartment. He found it cheaper, at the time, to take a class and repair the window himself, than to have it done professionally. Now he is the professional. He has taught me, and we work together ... my talents in drawing ... I can draw custom patterns ... I can also modify existing patterns (often drawn by artists who do not understand the properties of the glass) lines too close or too curved to be well made. Attached is the only window I've actually done from scratch (with his instruction) the pattern was modified by me to add the background, and make the window oval so it could be framed in channel zink (which stablizes the construction, so it doesn't pull apart in the heat of the sun)

I do encaustic, would that be considered HD/HP ?
it is applied by hand, and im thinking i could get some great textures

thanks,
LMK

tlsexton0913
05-22-2012, 08:52 AM
big toe studio, I'm not sure what encaustic is, but if it falls under hand drawn/hand painted, you are more than welcome to join.

mariloupatch, I received your wonderful cards yesterday. They are even brighter in person. Thank you for the extra.

AnnaAardvark
05-22-2012, 09:04 AM
IMHO, I always think of encaustic as hd/hp. :)

big toe studio
05-22-2012, 11:28 AM
OK, cool I will give it a whirl. I will post it b4 i mail, that way you can see if you think it fits

BTW, encaustic is hot wax applied with a small iron or stylus

I would love to play on this, but I have a question!

At one point I wanted to get into the art of stained glass, and collected several patterns ... is it ok to use those, or do we have to invent one ourselves?

tlsexton0913
05-24-2012, 12:03 PM
SunTrade, whatever works for you. I don't see why you can't use those if you are drawing them onto ATCs that should be fine.

SunTrade
05-24-2012, 01:12 PM
Awesome Add me up !

big toe studio
05-24-2012, 10:21 PM
OK, here are the 1st 2 encaustic cards.
Im not real thrilled with the yellow/orange==the shapes dont seem too "stained glass-y"
comments,lease

tlsexton0913
05-25-2012, 11:58 AM
big toe studio, maybe if you colored in around the yellow/orange it would look more like a stained glass.

Roadhousette, I received your cheerful little stained glass cards today. Thank you for the extra.

SunTrade, signing you up! Welcome, I'm so glad you're playing.

DenaCottrell

Considering I make stained glass windows, Knicknacks and stepping stones, this is perfect. I have boxes full of patterns - both bought and hand drawn. I had a business doin it for a while before I got married. I have a picture of a stepping stone I made from a prized photo of my Dad's. (I gave it the stone to him as a gift. It was my favorite piece.)
What a wonderful idea! I would love to join!
Thanks

06-18-2012, 01:53 PM
Marcie, I know, right? It is going to be so difficult.

I received amazing cards from Dedwar24, tracysart, and rianna203 over this last week. I've been so burned out from the computer, I didn't post. I am going to leave iTraders now.

The deadline is quickly approaching, so if you haven't gotten your cards in the mail, you might want to think about doing that soon!
