    Ghost Children Hand Painted/Hand Drawn April 24

    Swap Due Date - April, 24

    Number of Cards - 3 for 3
    Number of participants - unlimited
    Media= hand painted / hand drawn


    Ghost Children



    Lets paint the past friends. In a white light wash color.
    Here’s Vikinglady cards as example and the inspirations for the swap.
    I really loved the art style she did. The name was just as interesting as well. I mean just thinking about old friend from 5 grade is all ghostly like in away, you know fading memory.




    Remember to put your username and the swap name clearly on the back of your cards. If you don’t its hard to give you Itrade and rep points.

    Late card will be sent back I’m punctual girl. Please don’t mail 3 days before the due date, its not my job to make you mail, its yours if you want new lovely great art returns.

    Protect your ATCs in plastic sleeves of some kind.

    US participants: Include a self-addressed and stamped envelope for returns. Please put the name of the swap and your user name on the back of the mailing envelopes and return envelopes.

    International participants: Include a mailing label. I will take care of the envelopes. And the postage
    Please remember to give yourself time for mailing some country’s can take longer for card to get to me. I’m in the USA.


    When you receive your cards for the swap, please remember to leave iTrader for the Host (me) and Rep Points for the people you received cards from (That’s the YOU ROCK in blue)
    If you must withdraw its ok. Just tell me an I will take you off. Oh an extra card on theme is wonderful, but certainly not mandatory nor expected for participation.

    JavaZarf, I agree you with in that the theme is somewhat sad. I find as I age these memories sometimes wash over me quite suddenly and if I were to describe it in one word I'd say these memories are bittersweet. But you know what? One day I realized that all those little people in my life made me the person I am today. Each one taught me something and this journey into the past has brought me to a place where I now understand that every one counts and is a part of the tapestry we call life.

    Please sign me up Moonrose. There's still quite a few friends I want to paint and I'm really looking forward to hearing other peep's stories/memories. 😊

    OMG! I just googled Ghost Children. That was frightening. When I thought of the title it wasn't through the internet. I was thinking more along the line of memories from our childhood being kind of ghostly in that names and faces are slowly disappearing. I hope no one renders anything as creepy as what I saw when I googled this. Yikes!

    it is thought provoking, to say the least
