Swap Due Date - July 11, 2020
Number of cards - 5:5
Number of Participants:15 FULL (No Wait List)
Media: Mixed media/collage

NO WITHDRAWALS

Stash & Trash MOO Swap

Swap Requirements:


There is a limited number of envelopes and many artists want to play, so make sure you are committed and up for a challenge before you sign up. If I send you an envelope, you are required to complete the swap without knowing what is in the envelope. This is a no withdrawal swap, so I will leave neutral itrader to those who don’t complete the commitment to this swap. No cards, no contact, late cards may result in neutral itrader. ***If you have withdrawn from any of the previous trash or similar swaps, you are not eligible to join this swap.
PM me with your mailing address, so I can send out your trash items. Postage for the initial mailing of trash items is on me.
Swap is 5:5 cards. Host cards are not a requirement to join.
You must use at least two trash items per card. *Use can be more than attaching the item ~ you can alter the item or use it to paint on the card. The word *use, yes you can rip it, paint it, turn it around backwards, modify it. But you must *use it somehow.
Each Moo must be on a sturdy base and measure 1” x 2 ”.
We all have different skills so please send work you are proud of, think layers whenever possible. I will do my best to swap effort for effort. Remember, you should use items from your own stash to create finished art pieces.
All cards must be original works, not reprints.
All cards need to be labeled with your real name, and your AFA username, so others can leave you their thanks via you rocks. As stated before, you also need to declare on the back what trash items you used.


Mailing Requirements:


US Participants – Please include a legible SASE or mailing label for your returns.
International Participants - Please include a mailing label with your address clearly written or typed. I will provide an envelope for returns for all international players. Please include a well concealed US dollar bill or US global forever stamp.
Please make sure to package your cards securely. We don't want these wonderful works of art to get banged up in the mail.
When you are ready to send in your cards, please send me a private message if you need my address. Also, please post when you send in your cards, so I can be on the lookout.
Make sure your cards are mailed in time to be in my hands on or before the due date. Cards that are late will be returned at your expense. Missing cards will result in neutral itrader.


It is always fun and inspiring when artists share their cards in the thread, so feel free to do so!

When you receive your cards, please leave itrader for your hostess (that would be me) and "you rock" points to the players you received cards from.

Who's up for the challenge?

Did you get the cat from PREX?
or that owl?

I like that cat one. I never saw that Disney movie, so not even close to a fan. Gasp I know, but no little kids anymore and no grandkids so I have missed all the last 8 years of animated and kids movies.

Yes, the cat was on a napkin piece and the owl was on a small piece of card (maybe a note card?)

I have seen and / or own almost every (major) Disney movie. I used to drag my son (who is now 37) to see them all until he got bored of them (maybe when he was 10 or so), and then I decided, "I don't care what people think, I'll go by myself." Animation is one of my favorite genres. I have a friend, now, that likes them, too, so we usually go see them together. We saw Frozen II and were planning on going to see Onward, until the pandemic put an end to that. But I have both DVDs on order!

05-01-2020, 12:44 PM
The owl was from a box of those tacky feather birds that they add to floral arrangements and such. We had a huge donation of stuff from the storage of someone who used to own a flower shop. The boxes have been in storage for 20ish years. When I emptied out the boxes, I kept the images of the birds. My students love using the birds in their 3D art. I personally despise those things.... no offense meant to anybody who likes them

AngelJoy, your moos are great! I really love Moana!

I've never seen Moana, but I heard about it constantly when I wore a necklace I picked up in NZ. I gathered that Moana is Polynesian based on that association. Am I correct?

Yes, you are. "In Ancient Polynesia, when a terrible curse incurred by the Demigod Maui reaches Moana's island, she answers the Ocean's call to seek out the Demigod to set things right." (IMDb)

I have about 25 boxes of Mistletoe that were donated to the food bank. No one wanted them, but I liked the image on the box. So instead of throwing them away I took them home, They are still in my closet. mistletoe toe and all. I kept searching to see if the mistle toe is compostable. Still not sure as it kind of a fungus.
Nice image though RIGHT? you would save it too?

Yep. When I picked up the cupcake liner it was upside down and it looked like a skirt to me! Just had to find someone the right size to use it with. :)

CQ5, those are cute boxes!

Here’s what Permies says about composting mistletoe.

https://permies.com/t/49957/mistletoe-compost


I would go right ahead. I've composted everything from toxic spurges to deadly mushrooms (https://permies.com/t/46144/wild-harvesting/tis-season-morel-mushrooms#471040). Nature will fix everything by the time it's turned into compost (unless you have heavy metal contamination or another inorganic issue).

I had to go back and look at Moana's skirt - I thought it was great before I knew it was a cupcake liner. Now I think it's EVEN BETTER!

yes the mistletoe packaging is great

but here in florida - mistletoe is really a scourge - it can kill a tree
mistletoe is not a fungus - it has flowers and seeds and is spread by birds who eat the seeds

i dont have my trash envelope yet
but i see some pieces in your trash that spark my interest

great work!
I like how you show the before pictures
I can never do that
i start with one idea - then i have to audition many pieces and change my mind on every detail
and sometimes "find" a piece that is perfect and wonder why I didn't see it before
and sometimes my original idea is in the trash and another plan came together

Okay...

I contacted the MOO company that created the half-sized business cards to ask about the name. This is the response:

Hello Kimberly,

Thank you for getting in touch with the MOO team.

Our founder and CEO, Richard Moross wanted to choose a name that was unique, easy to remember and just as fun as we are!

Thank you for your interest. Please let us know if you have any other questions.

I’ll let you know when they are mailed.

Those are all awesome, I am not into owls, so wouldn't want to get an owl card and then a poor owl lover is left out in the cold. I really love them all. I like the Heart, I always like cats, but you two kids are adorable and the words with the bird seem perfect. Thanks for posting photos.

Did I forget to tell you that my trash arrived? Sorry about that! I finished my moos yesterday, and intended to mail them today. However, when I got up to the PO today, I realized I forgot to put a stamp on the envelope :huh: so I will stamp it and mail tomorrow!

I mailed mine as well and I realize I never said that, and I never posted the photo. Not the greatest photo. But I did mail already so no retakes.

Those are really sweet moos, CQ5! I love "Hoot" and the Moon moo is wonderful! And my fave - the last one (on the right) with the bird is gorgeous!

Thanks< nanvan, the bird one is in a shadow when I took the photo, but it really is a very pretty moo.

Great moos, Loladog. The little girl is especially appealing, but all are well done!

CastleQueen5

Well done Loladog! Any art with cats is a joy, anytime. I really do have so say that the Rain Rain go away was so clever, and I love out of the box thinking like that. I mean I still want a cat anything, but I do think the Rain is really my favorite and so unique.

Loladog, I agree with AngelJoy and CQ5 - also partial to cats and kids. Great moos and I love your owl!

Nice moos Loladog. I wanted so bad to use the negative but just couldn't figure out what to do w/ it. You had a great idea.

Those are amazingly well done, and I am not even a Frieda Freak or collector. I sure like them but would hate to take a Frida card away from a Frida collector. My daughter Bethany really likes her. Our phoenix, Museum has the suicide painting. The sad life of socialite Dorothy Hale. It isn't very big. average size but the history behind into is interesting.

I have read about her, and her paintings make more sense, as she was in a lot of physical pain.

CQ5 - I had to look up the Sad Life of Socialite Dorothy Hale - I'll have to read about her. I love the Frida painting - you're lucky to be able to see it in person!

My daughter, who was an adult at the time, asked me go to the Phoenix Art Museum =PAM with her, to see it. I think she was writing about it for college at the time. She is 28 now and married but whenever we go to PAM, she will ask where the painting is located. They do move art around. It was impressive in person.

Oh I have a photo of her standing next to it. wow I wonder if I could find it.

That is not the only daughter who has needed a buddy to the art museum for a college class. I went with the youngest once too. I do love the PAM, and we go on FREE days, cause we are cheap broke art lovers.

I used to go the art gallery in Vancouver on free days, but haven't been in over 3 years, since moving to the suburbs. I would love to see the photo of your daughter with the Frida painting, if you find it!

Last year I spend the whole day at the Chicago Institute of Art. I had a blast, and I was alone. Probably even better than with someone. Pollack was one artist that really was worth seeing in person. OVERALL, I just thought of his stuff as slop, til I saw it.

There did seem to be a lot of Degas, and Picasso paintings too. I got to see that Georges Seurat painting, up close. It was huge

"A Sunday on La Grande Jatte" I had to look up the title. But this was worth the wait to see this.

You are so lucky to have had the opportunity to go to the Chicago Institute of Art. I've been to many of the galleries in New York (not recently) and many in Europe and even saw a fabulous Georgia O'Keefe exhibit in Dallas on one of my return visits home from Canada. Vancouver had a very good exhibit of Frida Kahlo's art, which I was lucky enough to see. All this talk about galleries is making me yearn to see a good exhibit!
