Ok I would like to be in group #2 and my artist is Norman Rockwell. Here is my link: http://www.normanrockwell.com/artwork/gallery_more.htm This looks like it will be a fun swap to play in. Going to wait and see who else joins and what their themes will be. I just might have to join another group :P. :jiggy:.....

Hopefully I will get enough iTraders before the mixed media fills up! *fingers crossed*!

DADAology
04-12-2008, 03:10 PM
I will keep them crossed too, katilady

Love these PAT's. Trying to first catch up with stuff I owe elsewhere.
I'll be watching....and may return!

DADAology
04-14-2008, 09:23 AM
I do hope to see you back Wanda....

Also a note to all. "JUNE" will be taken off the name of the swap so it will not conflict with another PAT swap...So it will just say Favorite Artist PAT....

katilady
04-14-2008, 06:18 PM
I finally have enough iTraders, yay! But before I commit i have some questions. In the mixed media with hand drawn elements is it OK to collage and for the hand drawn elements have them be design elements? I don't really draw (I wish I could) but I am great at designing and using color. And it's OK if that won't work...I won't cry too hard, lol!

DADAology
04-15-2008, 09:27 AM
Just looked at your gallery, you have wonderful pieces. I loved! She Watches! Hand drawn elements could be just tracing around a collage piece (at least I think that would be okay) Just add a touch of hand drawn elements, stars, etc....If any one disagrees please feel free to add your 2 cents...Feed back is good.....

gourdhead1997
04-15-2008, 07:22 PM
Well, my 2 cents worth is that art is art. See Jackson Pollock. I think any drawn elements, whether they are recognizable images or just decorative scribbles as long as they add to the original artists concept is more than acceptable. Also, Katilady, I would have to argue that you can draw. I am sure you sign your name everyday. A signature is simply a drawing of your name in calligraphy. You may not have developed the way of hand/eye coordination to make images the way you wish to but you can draw. You just have to practice. This is the downfall of the education system. Writing is considered essential but drawing is not. Forgive the long posting but this is a passion of mine.

katilady
04-15-2008, 10:56 PM
Well since you all say it's OK, sign me up for the mixed media! My artist will be Florin Firimita, here's a link: http://www.absolutearts.com/fifstudio/

DADAology, thank you for your kind words on my work.
giurhead1997, I like the way you think!

DADAology
04-16-2008, 09:46 AM
Consider yourself added!
And thanks Steven for your nice comments....I love your passion!

Sandymutt
04-16-2008, 12:36 PM
Well I wanted to pop in my 1st card that I did for gourdhead1997 of Salvador Dali. The name I gave the card is (Salvador Dali going nose to nose with a rino). Hope you like it. Looking forward to seeing what rocketwoman will be coming up with. I have your card already drawn out and will be painting on it soon DADAology. Both yours and gourdhead1997 are black and white photos. But I wanted to add a hint of color to them. ;) I will be popping back with my next card finished soon.:yes:.......

gourdhead1997
04-16-2008, 05:48 PM
Yeeyy! That's terrific Sandymutt!:jiggy:

DADAology
04-16-2008, 06:12 PM
Sandy that is the neatest card! Can't wait to see mine. Thanks for posting!

Sandymutt
04-16-2008, 06:23 PM
LOL I'm so happy that you like your card gourdhead1997. There were alot of photos to pick from. But that one really looked like it would be a blast to do. LOL DADAology The one i'm working on is where she is sitting outside on a pillow. If you look in the site you will see the photo I picked of her. Also I will do her in a softer shades of color then the black and white photo . I think its going to be cool looking with just that hint of color. I will get it posted when i'm done so you can see your card too ;). Hugs.....

katilady
04-16-2008, 09:02 PM
Is the artist I selected OK? I am asking cause I don't see him next to my name.

I hope more people join the mixed media one!!

DADAology
04-16-2008, 11:56 PM
i'm sorry kati - I have no idea why I didn't follow through...but it is added now...

katilady
04-17-2008, 12:20 AM
No worries! Just checking!

Sandymutt
04-17-2008, 01:31 AM
Ok I just finished your card DADAology. I hope you like how it turned out. My scanner just never picks up the shading I do when working with white. But when you see it in person you will know. Can't wait to see the theme that rocketwoman comes up with.;)......

DADAology
04-17-2008, 03:14 PM
Sandy it is wonderful...can't wait to see it...thank you
Annette

rocketwoman
04-18-2008, 10:11 AM
sorry, totally dropped the ball on this. my artist is claude monet. he has been one of my favorite artists since i was a child. thanks.

DADAology
04-18-2008, 12:43 PM
I like him too.

gourdhead1997
04-18-2008, 03:50 PM
Oooh! Nice choice Rocketwoman. One of my faves too.

Sandymutt
04-18-2008, 11:44 PM
He is a great artist. I did see a photo of him that will be fun to do. So getting it ready to work on;). Hope you will like his portrait ...

Sandymutt
04-20-2008, 02:42 AM
Well I wanted to let you know I have your artist finished and wanted to put it in here for you to see. I hope you like your card rocketwoman.

rocketwoman
04-20-2008, 04:40 PM
love it, you do such a wonderful job on portraits and getting such a great likeness. i can't wait to call it my own. thanks

Sandymutt
04-20-2008, 08:39 PM
Oh I'm really happy that you like how he turned out. I did want to change it from the b/w photo it was. Just though it would make the paintings have a little something more to it. I do love working with photos and try really hard to capture the picture as close as I can get it in acrylics. Anyway this has been so much fun working on everyones cards. Hope we get another player soon to fill out our group;).......

gourdhead1997
04-21-2008, 05:25 PM
Great job on Claude, Sandymutt. I think it's awesome.

Sandymutt
04-21-2008, 06:47 PM
Thank You gourdhead1997 so happy that you like my painting of him. ;)

ShesSoCrafty
04-28-2008, 04:04 PM
Ok I'm ready to party! I'm going in group 2 and Ray Caesar is my artist... http://www.raycaesar.com/pages/GalleryIndex.html... This group seems to be all over the place I kinda like it!!! I'm still seriously considering the modigliani as well... Let me think a bit more!

gourdhead1997
04-28-2008, 06:21 PM
Wow! ShesSoCrafty, I wasn't familiar with his work but I looked at your link and was floored. I have to add him to my list of favorite artists. I will get a real kick out of trying to emulate his style. This is going to be a challenging swap.

ShesSoCrafty
04-28-2008, 06:34 PM
His process is mind boggling to me! But his work is beautiful and disturbing in a way that makes you not be able to look away! I was thinking initially of picking Dali but it will be more fun for me to do his stuff!

katilady
04-28-2008, 08:47 PM
What happens if no one joins your group? :(

gourdhead1997
04-28-2008, 10:55 PM
Here is my first one. I thought I would try one of my dogwood flowers that are blooming in my yard right now and do it in Okeefes style for our gracious host in my group #2. I hope you like it.

Sandymutt
04-28-2008, 11:32 PM
WOW I just checked out the site of Ray Caesar . Wonderful work and like you said you can't look away. lol So guess thats the one your planning to use as your Favorite artist? If so I will get to work on one of the paintings I seen. Was trying to find what he looked like. But couldn't find him to do his face. If you would like that and know where I could find a photo of him. Please let me know ok? .....WOW gourdhead1997 I love the dogwood flower. Its wonderful. Its almost like I could reach out and touch it.lol.... Hey Katilady its still early and alot of folks are getting swaps finished up So hang in there. I bet with it popped back on the top list more folks will pop in and check things out.;).....

liblue26
04-29-2008, 08:56 AM
I would like to join group one if I may.. My artist is DALI http://www.famouspainter.com/galleries/gallery_dali.htm

ShesSoCrafty

04-29-2008, 10:22 PM
Hi! I would like to wrap up group #2 with Vincent Van Gough (I think that is spelled right)! If there is still room.
Pat

Sandymutt
04-29-2008, 11:13 PM
ShesSoCrafty thats ok I did find a cool picture to make into a smaller painting of his work. I would have done him for you but np I can do one of his works for you instead;). He does such wonderful work it will be hard to get it but I will sure do my best for your card.:D....

pschafe1
04-30-2008, 08:57 AM
Guess what? I didn't spell it right. Now I'm going to try to post a link. Who knows this might work. http://www.vangoghgallery.com/

gourdhead1997
04-30-2008, 06:15 PM
Van Gogh is another wonderful choice. BTW, has anybody heard from our host? I hope she's not under the weather.

Sandymutt
05-01-2008, 12:38 AM
I havn't heard anything from her for a long time.:wideeyed: I sure pray she is alright. For some time this swap has been very quite:unsure:. Its just starting to pick up again. I sure pray that she will be back on line soon:yes:......

pschafe1
05-01-2008, 07:28 AM
I am going to send her a message to see if this swap is still really active. She doesn't have it listed under the swaps she's hosting in the Crows x 2 thread.
Pat

DADAology
05-01-2008, 09:22 AM
Good morning everyone....I look at the list every day and new Sandy was the last one that had posted so I didn't check until today...It never occurred to me that Sandy might have posted more than once...dah! I will open the group now instead of just looking at the last post....I am sorry to those that have posted and I missed you... I will catch up.

The flower is beautiful gourdhead....but then it could be no other way....

I will post again this evening.
Annette

Pat

ElectaBlue
05-01-2008, 10:22 AM
Could you sign me up for Group 1? I would like my artist to be Ping Irvin: http://www.craigirvin.com/ping/index.htm

I had a booth at an arts festival last weekend and she was selling her paintings there. I fell in love with them last year and couldn't wait to see what she came up with next.

DADAology
05-01-2008, 10:41 AM
Pschafel,
I sent you a PM and ask if you would like to trade to another group. ShesSoCrafty had requested that group ahead of you, I'm sorry I didn't catch it. Group one would be a good group too. Let me know.

"Blue" you are added.....

pschafe1
05-01-2008, 11:05 AM
Sure, I'll try group #1, this whole swap is going to be a challenge for me. I hope the others will like what I come up with. Sign me up! I hope we can get one more person.
Thanks for the quick response.
Pat

DADAology
05-01-2008, 11:34 AM
You are welcome....I have asked another member where to post to get it out there again...so hopefully we will get more participation....

DADAology

gourdhead1997
05-01-2008, 05:49 PM
$3.49 here too. I guess there is something to be said about living in the fly over states. It still hurts though. I drive a utility service van and the pump just automatically shuts off at $100.00. I cringe every time. Oh yeah, I go through 2 tanks per week. Thank god my company pays for it!

Annette, glad to hear everythings Okie dokie with you. I was concerned.

Sandymutt
05-02-2008, 11:02 AM
WOW Good to see your ok. Yep i'm a little chatty :chatterbox:even if no one chats back at me:P. LOL You so right if you keep this at the frount and on top of the list.

katilady
05-02-2008, 01:13 PM

Sandymutt

Thats ok .LOL I have a sister-in-law that is also Sandy. So my Father-in-law would call me "D" to keep things from getting messed up. Ok the other sandy need to give her theme to you. LOL Talk to you later. :jiggy:

Sandymutt
05-07-2008, 03:51 PM
Well I wanted to let you know I have my card finished for Shesocrafty. I picked one of Ray Caesar's pictures to do. I hope you like how it turned out. It was a fun one to work on;)

Sandymutt
05-07-2008, 03:54 PM
My scanner just doesn't pick up the shading I put in the sky. :(Its much better in person as you will see when you get it.;).....

katilady
05-07-2008, 08:17 PM
I am going to give it another week to see if anyone signs up for my group. If no one does I am going to have to regretfully withdraw. I just won't have time to research and do all the cards justice if people sign up later than that. :(

Sandymutt
05-07-2008, 10:27 PM
Hey DADAology, I will be sending off my group#2 cards in the morning. So let me know when you get them. This has been a fun swap.------I Hope some others will pop in your group Katilady. Hang in there if you can;).....

pschafe1
05-08-2008, 08:56 AM
I have a question. If group #1 doesn't get that last player, what happens? Do we just swap with others in group?
pat

Sandymutt
05-08-2008, 11:34 AM
I did want to let you know that I put the cards in the mail so they should get to you in a few days. I put a forever stamp in it as the mail lady said it would be good even when they up the cost on stamps. So I hope it will be good to go;) Talk to you later, Hugs.....

DADAology
05-08-2008, 10:16 PM

DADAology
05-10-2008, 12:19 AM
Yeah I saw it and thought I fixed it but guess I didn't save it. Has anyone else found the site slow? I am having the most dreadful time. And it is only on this site. It takes for ever to load a page when I change. Awhile ago it took over a minute to load the home page it was waiting on loading the paypal link. I just got this laptop a acouple of months ago and have been very disappointed in it. I don't know if the problem lies with my lap top or with AT&T?!!!!

DADAology
05-10-2008, 02:09 PM
Sandymutt's amazing cards arrived today...wow they are just wonderful. Thanks Sandy....

DADAology
05-10-2008, 02:35 PM
Oh by the way thank you sandy for the fun extras...I love the little envelopes....too cute.

katilady
05-11-2008, 01:34 PM
DADAology could you add my link next to my artist? Thanks!

Sandymutt
05-11-2008, 02:54 PM
Oh I'm so happy that you got my cards. I added the forever stamp in with my address for returns. It should be good to go as the stamps raise a cent or 2.;). Have a Happy Mothers day. I will be talking to you soon. Hugs

DADAology

thanks girls for the compliments. I must say, this going to be learning and brain twisting event for me. trying to draw something in your own style, but with infuluence of a famous artist is pretty interesting and cool. just a tiny bit intimidating as well.........but must take chances or you never accomplish anything. I just finished my order for 20 altered mini lunch boxes. fun, but a test.....I prefer to do one of a kind things....but it was ok, easier when I finally figured out how to work in stages. will be back, have a great weekend all.:D

Sandymutt
05-16-2008, 11:43 AM
WOW 20 mini lunch boxes. I bet they are really cute;) ....Hope you have a wonderful weekend too. I will be outside working in the garden and mowing. Its going to be really nice and sunny here they say ( weather man). After all the rain we have been having for so long. It will be nice to spend the time outdoors soaking in the sunshine.;)

great cards all of you.
I've been sleeping a lot. The coughing isn't as bad...I still hurt but I'm sure that will take awhile to heal. I did this two years ago and it was awful.. Not so bad this time. I sure hope I'm better by Sat or Sun..
going to bed check in later

katilady
06-01-2008, 06:26 PM
So I finally finished! Believe it or not this piece took hours of contemplation, searching, cutting, and painting! You gave me quite the challenge Ibus, and that's a good thing, so thank you! So here it is, Starry Night, mixed media style:

katilady
06-01-2008, 06:29 PM
Annette, since this swap is only 2 weeks out do you think it's safe to send in my card? I am asking cause my group never filled up and we are still 'open'. Not sure I could pull off another one with so little time, anyway, lol!

Ibus
06-01-2008, 06:57 PM
I gave you a challenge, Miss Black?! I can't find what I'm looking for and I misread the other group, so planned to print and embroider the Thomas Kinkead (and I thought there was a Flower Fairy too) but I can't :(

artsygemini
06-02-2008, 04:39 AM
hi everyone.......hope you all had a great weekend. hope you are getting better DADA. I finished another card for group one. I love salvador Dali, and even got a chance to visit his museum in florida two years ago, it is only one of two in the world. the other is in spain. I have many of his prints hanging in my art room......but boy was he a challange for me. this is liblue's. sorry if I slaughtered it dear, I really put my heart into it. I finally decided not to try and copy his piece, just take one and change it a little and make mine too. once I did that, it was fun and a tad easier. I have used water color on all my group one cards, it is my least used medium.......so I have enjoyed the challege of it. anyway, here it is sweetie, hope you like it!:unsure::jiggy:

Ibus
06-02-2008, 09:40 PM
LOL Miss Black, I've had a hard time with your card too. I'm battling with the Kinkead too, so it's going to have to be 'sort of like' as I cannot get that quality he has. Don't know what I'd have done with 3 or 4 more cards in the group!

hi all. I am finally done with my last group 1 card. it is influenced by Van Gogh and for pschafe1. this was by far the hardest for me. I am NOT an impressionistic painter for sure. I made 4 before I could even think of sending it. finally had to accept that it is just influenced, not alot like the master. I hope you like it, I gave it a genuine go at it. I will get them off in the mail in the morning annette. thanks for including me and I really have enjoyed the swap, great learning experiece.:spinny:

hi everyone!
all the cards are just amazing......everyone did such nice cards, can't wait to see them in person. I am thinking about getting one of those atc holders that rotate and sit on a coffee table ect. , so you can enjoy them in the front room and sit out all the time. I wish they were just not quite so pricey. I have not seen one for less than 29.00$. I bet if the atc craze was not so big they would be alot less. anyway, enough complaining.

I have two swaps left not sure if I will start another one or not....but have a couple in mind. Watch for the post. I started giving iTrader pts last night will check to see if I missed anyone and get that taken care of tonight. In the swap remember you give itrader pts to the person you receive from as it is a one on one trade.

Let me know as your cards begin to arrive. Thanks.

ALL CARDS ARE IN THE MAIL AS OF YESTERDAY.....

I took them to the post office to insure there was enough postage on them and glad I did...everyone of them needed more postage. It seems if the envelope isn't thin like a normal letter, and doesn't bend they charge you a surcharge for hand stamping. It doesn't matter that the weight is right. So on the safe side from now on I would put an extra 20 cents on each envelope.

ElectaBlue
07-03-2008, 01:45 PM
Annette, I am so excited! I can't wait to see my cards.

About the postage-I have found that some of the postal employees insist that my ATC envelopes are too rigid and say they need the extra 17 cent surcharge and other ones say that they are just fine. I have found that if you just put them in the mail with the regular postage they get there just fine (just as long as they aren't too heavy). I know which ones to avoid now because the extra postage can really add up.

If you haven't given your itrader pts to your artist,,,please do so.
