General Information:
~ This swap contains 6 groups of 5 members. Sign-ups will end when all spots are filled.

~ Once you sign up with a theme you can’t withdraw, as some artist start their cards immediately
~ CARDS are to be in my hands on/before July 1, 2020.

Pick-A-Theme Examples
~ Generic/Regular – Generic themes where is it easy to think up a card; for example fairies, cats, dogs, flowers, etc. Regular themes which require a little more thought or research but are not difficult to find a reference or collage image for example; flying pigs with hats, red poppies, whimsical houses, nature fairies, zetti, etc. (Real people or characters in books or movies are not regular themes! Something from a specific artist or person is not a regular theme)
~ Challenging –Themes that usually require research and reference. Examples are real people, characters from books or movies or perhaps obscure themes such as “Dogs in Victorian England.” They can also be themes that are difficult to interpret like music or a difficult poem. These can require a lot of thought and effort. If you have internet references please include the best one of them so I can post it for your fellow group members.

Card information: ~ All cards should be sent in individual plastic sleeves if you have them. (If you don’t protect them some way and I will provide them. I don’t want that to stop anyone from playing.)
~ Please put your username, the Group Number and the recipient’s username on each card you make.
~ If you want to post your cards to the thread for all to enjoy please do, but it is not required.
~ A Hostess card is not required but always appreciated! See my profile for ideas.
Mailing Information:
USA folks -----Please enclose a self-addressed envelope and postage. As for postage I think since there are at least 4 cards it is a good idea to put .70 on the envelope, either a forever stamp and an extra ounce stamp or .70 in stamps. If you want to do it for a forever stamp or .55 you can though, your choice! If you are in 2 groups you really need .70! I am willing to take your envelopes to the PO and get them hand canceled, and even have the RED stamp that reads NON machinable.

INTERNATIONAL folks ----Please enclose an address label or address printed clearly on a piece of paper. I will supply envelopes to save you a little bit of postage! A dollar bill or US Forever GLOBAL International stamps, I will also take your countries postage, and just use it for a swap hosted by someone from your country. I will even take your countries $1 equivalent. PayPal is an expensive option.
***To complete the swap, please leave itrader for your host (me) and for each participant in your group(s).

Hello CQ! So sorry about that. I even looked above me to see if someone had taken the slot, but somehow I missed it. Thank you for the offer, but I think I will pass for now on starting a new group. I just couldn't resist the original group because of all the great artists, and knowing that it would be full right away and I could get started on things without having to wait.

So sorry not to have given a theme :embarrassed:

Use Flux (https://tanglepatterns.com/2015/03/how-to-draw-flux.html) and/or Paradox (https://tanglepatterns.com/2010/05/how-to-draw-paradox.html) for my card. (They are 2 of my favourite/ go-to tangles).

Okay I think I'm going to join group 2 before someone scoops ups the last spot. I love these themes, and though I've never played one of the games (Little Nightmares) I love the aesthetic of the characters they requested!

My theme is TBA for now... I'll think about it... and it might be video game related! ;)

I have completed two of my zentangle cards. This is honestly the hardest art I've ever tried to make! I did the bird card twice already and I'm still not real happy with the results. Something challenging and new, I guess! Phew!!

BekahStargazing
04-25-2020, 04:50 PM
Okay, my theme is going to be Bratty & Catty from Undertale!

Be creative with it! Maybe check out fanart of them and see what others have done, think up cute expressions/poses, etc.

Okay, I need to check with you Yonawrites:

THIS is my second attempt at zentangle birds. The first one is in the trash. My sister says it looks demonic, and I know that it isn't great. I did not realize that zentangled patterns are hard for me, but I am so willing to give it another shot. If my second attempt is still less than beautiful, would you be okay with two imperfect cards instead of one beauty?

I'm glad to be challenged, and I am getting better, but I think I've found the art style that complexes me most.

I am not the Zentangle Queen but can I suggest you try a DIE cut to TRACE an area that is a bird. Then Zentangle in that space. You might find you dont have to try too hard. Your ZENtnagling is great, so you got that part down. I hope this helps. I could always mail you a die cut too if you don't. have one

http://www.atcsforall.com/forum/showthread.php?17880-LIST-1-1-APC-Trades&p=1489054#post1489054


I had to search to find my WL again. I am post 66, I can now remember that I am post 66 since it was my birth year.

http://www.atcsforall.com/forum/showthread.php?17880-LIST-1-1-APC-Trades&p=1489054#post1489054

Mine have gone in the post today. Our little Post Office was busy and although I asked for mine to be sent "signed for" which would get me a tracking number, when I got outside I realised that my receipt was just for normal post and I don't have a tracking number. So I'm a bit concerned now as I can't keep an eye on it's journey.

But, anyway, here they are ...

Group 1

216113 Whimsical Sun for Terri-F

216114 Frida for Wykyd

216115 At the Beach for Ancient Planter

216116 Bluebird for CiCiCreates

216117 Thoughtful Quote for Wykyd

216120 Umbrella Bird for ferretgirl

And the Hostess card ... 216121

Great cards LucyMC. I am home, but if I get a lazy postal worker, delivering, they will say I am not home. and then I have to drive a whole mile, (drive cause it is too hot to walk), to stand in line, for them to tell me they cant find it; check back tomorrow. Not that has EVER happened to me EVER. I swear once I got a package from INDIA and they could not find it. It was put in the SEND back bin. I do think it was the one employee who I gave a bad rating, she was so rude previously so I got the survey on the reciept and I let them know.

But the supervisor found it because they had photos of the package. I think he also suspected something.

Then I started having problems. It seems all straight now, but sometimes I wonder. There are 2 others clerks who are so helpful. I try to get them when I need to buy stamps.

CastleQueen5
06-15-2020, 06:17 PM
ksj1717 your fun zentangles arrived today. with all that other FUN stuff you sent, me. Thanks so much for those items too, esp the Heather Pin, and the coffee embellishments.

I did check for accuracy on your cards. All is well. Did you intend to also give Yonawrites your demon hummingbird? If it was on the note, I missed it.

ksj1717
06-15-2020, 07:13 PM
