Swap Due Date: November 5, 2019
Sign Up/Withdrawal: any, please communicate
Number of Cards: 3/3
Number of Participants: 20
Medium: Hand Drawn/Hand Painted/ some Mixed Media*

Whimsical Childlike Art can be seen through artist's like Mindy Lacefield, and Juliette Crane (please Google or search them online and other artists similar to this to get an idea of what I'm talking about, if you need) let them inspire you to make your ATC art for this swap.

* some Mixed Media: I mentioned this because these artists use some scrapbook paper or painted papers they make to collage/include in their paintings, drawings,etc. You're welcome to do that if you like.

Most of all have fun!

Any questions, please don't hesitate to ask! :)

PM me for my address when ready to mail.

Send cards in individual sleeves please. Include username, real name and swap name on back of cards, and anything else you would like to add.
U.S. Players: please enclose a Forever postage stamp and a large address label along with your ATC's.
International Players: I will pay for return postage for the first 5 players. Other international players please enclose $1 well-hidden and a large address label along with your ATC's. I will provide envelopes.

Hostess cards will be cherished, but not required.

When returns are received, please remember to leave iTrader for your host, and rep points for those you received cards from.

Who would like to play? :)

Essy, I am fascinated by this simple and colorful art style. I have been doing some research and can add a couple of other names to Juliette and Mindy. Patti Ballard and Kelly Rae Roberts (I have a little book by her). You probably already know these names. I am inspired to see if I can do this (but not quite ready to sign up just yet).

Essy

hem18, welcome! :) Thank you for joining us! Yay! :)
CiCi, thank you so much for the information it will give the rest of us more inspiration to glean from :)...hope you join us ;)

Remember the kindergarten school days cutting, pasting, coloring, drawing, doodling...and being excited of what we made...so proudly showing it off to our friends and parents :D ...this is what I would like for all the players to feel and enjoy the time creating your cards...no pressure. ..please just have fun! :)

Essy
09-19-2019, 03:04 PM
CiCi, I looked up the artist's you mentioned...I've seen their work, but didn't know their names. Thank you for sharing!

Juliette Crane is now one of my favorite artists. I watched a short video of her painting one of her pieces, and all I want to do right now is glue paper and fabric to an ATC and paint and draw all over it! Please add me to your list!

I now have two cards finished and two more well on their way, so please sign me up. I’m not sure how pleased I am with my cards, this seemingly simple style is fighting my natural inclinations. I really love the look, but I struggle to get that style to come through in my images. Well, you will see when I post pictures, and I hope they’re ok. I did discover a great way to do interesting backgrounds though! Will do more with this new technique.

Essy
09-25-2019, 05:04 PM
Acalla, awesome! Welcome! So happy you're joining us! Yay! :)
lazyshadows, another welcome to you my dear friend and thank you! So happy you will be joining us as well, yay! :)

Essy
11-07-2019, 04:17 PM
I will be swapping out cards today, and getting them ready to mail out tomorrow...I'm still hoping the international cards arrive tomorrow, as my mail delivery comes early morning and my post office closes later in the afternoon, if so I will re-swap some around to include the international players cards also and get the envelopes sealed and go to post office to mail them out to you. Thank you so much again for playing and supporting my second swap, and also for your patience, it was my pleasure to host this swap :)

Essy
11-08-2019, 07:19 PM
Sadly, the international cards I was waiting on did not arrive in today's mail. I have swapped out the cards and took them to the post office, they are on their way to you players :) Thank you so much for playing in the swap, it was truly my pleasure to host it. I enjoyed seeing all the creativity and style you players came up with for the theme, I loved it! I hope most importantly that you all had fun making them :) I did my best to give each player a variety in your returns, I do hope you all enjoy them. As a thank you, I made each of you players a card in the Whimsical Childlike art style using some themes you collect in your profile, so you will be receiving four. Thank you again for your patience. Please remember to give iTrader points so I know they arrived for you, and YouRock! to the players of the cards you received. Thank you!!! :)
I hope to host this theme again in the near future ;)
