Swap Due Date - March 29
Signup/withdraw date - None, just communicate
Number of Cards - 3 for 3
Number of participants - 30 per group

This swap is all about whimsical birds! Birds that are skinny, chubby, tall, short, giant, mini, rainbow, polka dotted, colorful, etc. Birds wearing hats, crowns, shoes, makeup, etc. Birds reading, playing golf, laying on the beach, eating cereal, etc. Birds in space, trees, school, workplace, gym, etc. Get creative and have fun! There are a plethora of examples online if you look up "whimsical bird".

When you sign up in the thread,please specify whether you would like to participate in the han-drawn/hand-painted group or the mixed media/collage group (or both).You will make and receive cards within your chosen group.

(Please nothing scary, gross, or vulgur)

RULES:
*My definition of HD/HP is usingONLYpencils, pens, markers, and paints.
*My definition of mixed media/collage is using multiple elements in an artistically harmonious way. That means no slapping on one sticker and scribbling a quote. PleaseNO raised embellishments or loose glitter. All elements should be securely attached.
*Your cards should be 2.5" x 3.5" withstraight edges.
*Original art only. Each card must be different.
*Do your best work.Only send cards you would be happy to receive!I will be trading apparent effort for effort.
*Cards should be sturdy! Try using two layers: the art, and some kind of backing. (I use Mod Podge to adhere thin cardboard to the back of my cards)If you can bend your card into a "U" shape, it is not sturdy enough.
* Each card should be sent it's own plastic sleeve.
* Please sign up by posting to thread only.
* If you have to withdrawal, just let me know. No cards and no communication will result in a neutral iTrader.
* Please include your username, real name, swap name, and date on the back of your cards
*Remember to leave iTrader for me (host) and You Rocks to those whose cards you received!

MAILING:

* USA: Please send a large mailing label (or piece of paper) with your name and address and the same amount of postage it takes to mail me your cards. I will provide envelopes.

*INTERNATIONAL: Please send a large mailing label (or piece of paper) with your name and address . A well concealed US dollar or US stamp would be appreciated, but I will take care of the postage if you can't. If you'd rather use PayPal, just send me a PM.

*Please write the swap name on the back of your envelopes.

*Mail usually only takes 3-4 days to get to me if it's within the US. If international, use your best judgement.

* I would love to see progress and cards posted to the thread!

* Please PM me for my address when you're ready

*Host cards are very appreciated, but are not required.

Green means recieved
Red means you got your returns

I'll lurk for now, please, and see if I'll have time to get some cards some first!
I love whimsical themes, but I have difficulty doing them. :twitcy:

Empress_Dragon
01-31-2016, 07:39 PM
My style falls into both categories as my cards are often include hand drawn/painted work with different types of media (paint, paper, pencils etc.)...You can decide once you receive them (if I send three) or I'll be in both swaps (if I send 6). Thanks for the invite.

Cheers.

Sign me up today for the hand-drawn birds. I don't do whimsy and just tried whimsical birds for the inchie-athon. They were popular, so I guess I can do whimsy!

dorothygilmore
01-31-2016, 10:38 PM
Empress_Dragon: if anything besides pencils, pens, markers, or paints are used, then they are mixed media in my opinion. Looking at your gallery, I would say that you would be in the mixed media/collage group because it appears you layer neat papers and other elements like stamps together :)

Thanks for joining fernheart and jo.on.the.go :D

Jennifer and theriputicart, I really hope you guys can find thw time to join!

Thouartdelyrias, those are awesome!! Patisscrappin is in your group too. And I think I may do cards for both groups... I'm enjoying this mixed media thing!

Hey Miss DorothyG it breaks my heart, but there is an urgent matter at work and I'm going to be traveling the next few weeks. I am forcing myself to drop from this swap. Please check your inbox because I sent a private message with my agenda/details. I feel bad because I have two cards created. Technically three, however one is not whimsical and needed to be recreated. I'm sorry. :(

Miss Clara decided she wanted to join my collection of birdies. She's my favorite so far, and quite a hoot! She tries very hard to be lady like, but sometimes her fowl mouth gets the best of her.

Dorothy, I'm sorry but I'm going to have to withdraw. I've been working on these cards for a week and I'm just having a block. I can't seem to get them together. I'd rather withdraw than send cards I'm not happy with. Sorry again!

Glad my birds arrived.

I haven't kept up with commenting on the thread but wanted to say that the birds in this swap are all super. i haven't seen one i wouldn't be excited to receive. This is one group of creative whimsical art makers.

prex79 ... that is one unique peacock. I collect them so I love it.

Can I sign up for one of these? I'm not sure which one. I carve my own images and then paint them. So, would that be hd/hp?

Thanks

dorothygilmore
03-22-2016, 03:05 PM
Of course! If I understand correctly, you use a craft knife and paste that onto a card? By using anything other than pencil, pen, marker, or paint, you step into the mixed media category (: Is that alright?

flowergurl4eva
03-22-2016, 03:41 PM
Almost, I use lino or PZ cut carving rubber. I draw the image, then I carve them with Flexcut tools. I then use ink or paint, not sure at the moment and make prints. After I make the prints I paint them, or use markers, or pencils. I don't paste anything, I print it from the carved block. So, I guess mixed media it is.

I just saw the date the cards for this swap are due.
Hoping to mail them out by Monday. I am out of town, so I am working on drawing my design to carve on Friday when I get home. I see you are in DC, so I think they will get to you in time. I hadn't looked at the date until my hubby said when is the swap cards due. eeek

dorothygilmore
03-22-2016, 09:52 PM
Woops! They are due on March 29, so I think the absolute latest you could mail would be this Thursday or Friday. I live in Pensacola, Florida.

I sent my cards late last week. I was so unhappy with my first set, I decided to start over. These were a real challenge for me, but I like the second set much better. I'm cutting it close to the arrival date, but late week mailings usually, so far the rule, take less time, 3-4 days from where I live. So I'm crossing my fingers.

dorothygilmore
03-28-2016, 02:36 PM
Fingers crossed Dee!
Sceri, I'm sorry your envie seems lost ): This isn't the first time I've had trouble with the Canada Post not getting things to me.

Not yet, RoOskie. When did you mail?

dorothygilmore
03-28-2016, 08:47 PM
I did get a notice in the mail today that I had to go to the post office to pay $1.07 in unpaid postage in order for me to get an envelope. It was from Washington, last name Powers. Is that anyone here?
