View Full Version : CHOOSE A THEME, HandDrawn/HandPainted ATC Swap, Due Feb. 4

Due Date: Feb. 4
Signup/Withdrawal Date: Jan. 30
Number of Cards: 3 for 3
Number of Players: Unlimited
Media: Hand-drawn/Hand-painted, light embellishments Ok

Please select 3 different color schemes from the Colors list, and then choose 3 different subject themes from the Themes list. It is your choice which color schemes to use for which themes. As long as the two colors in each of your 3 choices are prominent on your card, you can also use accents of black and white, and even other colors in small amounts. The color scheme choice should be obvious on your card, and any value range can be used, pastel to dark.

You can get pretty creative with this idea, and I tried to make up a theme list which would allow some popular subjects for everyone to choose from. This is a hand-drawn/hand-painted Swap, with “flattish” embellishments allowed. On the back of each card, please write your color scheme choice and your theme choice, along with the usual real name, username, and swap title. An extra “host card” is always appreciated but never necessary.

Well, I tried a couple of cards, but they all seem so childish, so I won't be joining. Some day I will work more on my hand drawing / hand painting, but right now I guess I am just more comfortable with mixed media and collages. It's such a great idea for a swap, though, and I am sure you will get some brilliant submissions. Thanks for letting me lurk!

CiCiCreates

Always welcome to lurk and follow along! I’m sorry it didn’t work out for you, but I do understand. Watch for my next swap to be posted later today - it is Open Media.

Here are my cards, i do hope they match the swap criteria? As i just realised i used a lot of colours, and maybe i shouldn't have. I chose the basic ones and played with shading and mixing secondary tones. They will go in the mail tomorrow so you have time to decide! He he:)

Lazyshadows, they are wonderful! Your two main color choices are obvious on each card, I guessed them all easily. Now to choose my host card....very difficult, but there’s one I cannot resist, I hosted an ATC Swap and also a Mail Art Swap on that theme. Can you guess?
