    1on1: All things imaginary or fanciful (updated/expanded)

    Hi everyone, I'd like to set up some trades! One on one swaps (though said swaps don't strictly have to be "1-for-1"... we can trades two cards for two, or even three.) I will make an ATC for you on a theme of your choice (I like a challenge!) in exchange for a card made that fits into my favorite broad category of all things imaginary or fanciful. Check my gallery for an idea of my style; I mainly do mixed media collage, but if you really want I'm also willing to try my hand at "HDHP" - hand drawn or hand painted. I don't think of myself as very good at it, but I'm happy to stretch my artistic muscles if that's the style you'd prefer to receive. (Please note I expect any good challenge to take me two or three weeks, which may be a bit longer than some folks are used to. Maybe my muse is slow! )

    Here's a list to get you inspired! Imaginary/fanciful people, creatures, places, events, transportation, and stories - particularly (but not limited to)

    People: mermaids, robots, pirates, and mad scientists
    Creatures: dragons, unexpected werethings, and griffins or other animal blends
    Places: castles, underwater cities, space stations, junkyards, and treehouses
    Events: circuses, carnival rides (carousels, ferris wheels, etc), costume parties, and treasure hunts
    Transportation: elaborate/old-style hot air balloons, zeppelins, and spaceships
    Stories: myths, nursery rhymes, fables, fairy tales, and legends
    I'd love to hear any suggestions you might have for other examples. Even if you're not interested in a trade, I'm curious to hear other people's thoughts on what sort of things fall under the heading of imaginary and/or fanciful. Feel free to pm me!

    ♥♥♥In particular, I absolutely loveloveLOVE mixing these imaginary or fanciful elements together, such as Robot Pirates, or a Mermaid in her Castle, or The Mad Scientist's Treehouse, or Bo Peep's Spaceship. Mixing and matching, "mashing up" fantasy concepts... these are some of my very favorite cards.♥♥♥

    I am also happy to trade already-made cards on these themes. I welcome cards you happen to have on my theme, even if the are second gen (cards not made by you - cards you got and no longer want). The same goes for my end of the trade - if you see something in my gallery that you'd like, I will happily trade that for one of my themes.

    (Please, nothing "branded" like Disney. I doubt I even really need to say that, but I wanted to be sure.)

    Ummm...I've had a 'mermaid in her castle' in process for quite awhile, as well as a robot pirate...shall I send you either, or both?? And are you including steampunk in this exchange? I really want to give that try...

    I am very interested in these types of themes myself. I will be making a few over the coming week, and when I get them up in the gallery I will post the link here, if anyone wants to trade?

    I haven't bumped this in a while. I edited and updated this post again, so... any new takers? Or old for that matter! I'd be happy to trade again with some of the first folks I traded with.
