    Folk Art Style HandDrawn/HandPainted Swap ~Due February 28th

    Due Feb 28, 2012
    Number of cards - 3 for 3 or 6 for 6
    Number of US participants - unlimited
    Number of International participants - I will pay for the first 5 (others may sign up if have return stamp or $1.00 US money)
    Withdraw Date - Just let me know
    Media - Hand Drawn or Hand Painted


    I've been a kick lately of revisiting folk art paintings of Grandma Moses. Folk art brings to my mind, rolling hills with houses nestled by weeping willows and barns with stars, fluffy sheep, fat cats, cows with skinny legs and colorful roosters. If you enjoy this rustic syle of art, come join me in my new swap. Create 3 or 6 hand drawn or hand painted cards to swap out with fellow artists.

    -all finished work must be ATC size
    -include your name,user name, date, swap name and location on the back of each card
    -include a self addressed envelope with postage, If sending 6 cards, please put .90 cents return postage. If your cards are heavy, some loose 20 cent stamps would be great

    Postage is going up prior to these returns, if not using a forever stamp, please make sure 45 cent stamp is on your return envelope. Thanks

    -put your user name on the back of all envelopes and put your return address on the envelope I will be mailing back to you. This saves me loads of time!-

    internationals - please send an address label
    -place all cards in a protective plastic sleeve

    Please have your cards to me before the due date, do not mail on that date. PM me if you need the address.




    Players.

    I'd like to play! This is a style I admire but which I've struggled to learn. A swap will get me practicing!
