Swap Due Date ~ June 13, 2018
No sign up/withdrawal deadline, but please communicate!
Number of Cards ~ 3 for 3
Number of Participants – Unlimited
Open Media

Welcome to the Fantasy Faces Swap!

Returns Mailed: Thursday June 21!

This swap is to celebrate people’s faces with magic, supernatural or otherworldly qualities. They can be magical beings, dieties, steampunk portraits, science fiction creations or human faces with fantastic features. Part-human, part-animal faces are OK, too; as long as some aspect of humanity is recognizable in the face, it will work for this swap. Any media is OK and mixed media is encouraged, but no heavy, bulky embellishments, please. The first two examples above are mine; the mermaid (CandiceL), Mother Nature (shewolf36) and Punky Cyborg (zandradee) are from my collection.

Swap Requirements ~
* All cards should be standard 3.5” x 2.5”
* This swap is 3 for 3 only. An extra card for the host is welcome, but completely optional.
* Cards must be original. Send work into which you put time, imagination and care.
* Please use only small, light embellishments on your cards.
* Please protect your cards with plastic sleeves.

Mailing Information ~
* Include username, real name, your state/country and the swap name on the back of all cards - and put username and swap name on all envelopes sent.
* US Participants – Please include a clearly written SASE.
* International Participants - Please send a clearly-addressed envelope or mailing label and I will cover postage.

Please PM me for my address when you are ready to mail your cards. Please post in this thread when you are sending your cards out, that way I can keep track of the cards when they were mailed. Any late cards will be returned.

When you receive your returns, please leave I-Trader for your swap host and rep points for the artists of the cards you receive. People like to know where their little artworks find home.

Who would like to create some fantastic faces?

I am not sure I understand the description.
I like the faces with the "backgrounds" in them, but I guess I don't understand how that is magical or otherworldly.

mrubyjean
04-10-2018, 09:41 PM
catladybj, it sounds like it is not the description you don't understand... it sounds like you don't think my second sample card, which I call 'garden goddess', fits the description. I'm sorry about that...she seems otherwordly to me.

I will try to find some cards in my collection that are more universal examples for the swap.

Thank you for the invitation. I was, at first, a little intimidated. Then very intrigued. And now quite inspired! I'm taking HUGE wobbly steps out of my comfort zone, but If not now, when?? Sign me up, Ms. Ruby, and let the faces fall where they may! Hahaha! (deep breaths...) :)

Two cards done!!! The second card is made using a photo I took of my daughter about two years ago when she returned home after a day of rehearsal for "The Nutcracker". I was struck by the intensity of her stage make-up. She was tired but I successfully coaxed her to stand by a window for a picture... yay me! Today, I can't find a rooftop high enough to brag that she was awarded a research fellowship award for her study in environmental sustainability at her university!!! (A proud "mom moment"... we just heard news of it a few days ago!)

Sure, Ethereal Sheep, any media, style or technique is fine...as long as, to you, there are magical or otherwordly qualities or features to the finished faces.

mrubyjean
04-21-2018, 09:52 PM

As long as the face is prominent, ReverieJJ, it's OK to have some of the body showing too.

Sorxia, those cards are so so lovely! (although that third eye is a lil creepy) I love the blue one with the stars in her hair the best.

Glad my cards made it safely!

Just returned from the Post Office, where I mailed out the swap returns!

I hope everyone enjoys their fantastic faces! This was a really challenging swap as there were so many different kinds of fantasy represented. I read everyone's profiles and looked at likes & comments in the gallery and the thread to help me figure out returns. Thank you all for your wonderful artwork!

An easy way to give You Rocks! to the artists of your returns: just click on the person's name (in magenta) in my first post and it will take you to that person's post. The You Rock! button is at the bottom right.

Great hosting of a super fun idea!!! Thank mrubyjean! What’s up your sleeve next?

mrubyjean

Funny you should ask, Marie...I always have a few ideas floating around.

For a while, I have wanted to host a swap on Shakespeare's plays...but don't know how much interest there would be.
And perhaps a more open-ended swap...something like interpretations of "light on water"...sunlight on waves, moonlight on puddles, candlelight on a glass of water...but maybe that's too open-ended.
Or perhaps a Coral Reefs swap, as they are so beautiful but many are dying.
