    Talking AUGUST Canvas Board Mail Art Trade 5x7

    Deadline to sign up: August 7 we are closed to new sign ups this month. Catch us next month.
    Mail out (try to mail by this date): August 22
    Deadline: August 31
    Open Theme
    Open Medium on 5x7 canvas board

    New-ish wording is in blue.

    This is a quick turnaround paired partner swap! But, since this a monthly activity, you could plan ahead in your mind or even create some canvases up for the future to then chose from. Just a thought.

    Rules, rules, everyone likes rules....Players have the 1st thru 7th of the month to come to the thread and say, "I'd like to play". If you participated in the previous month's canvas board trade, you will not be allowed to sign up for this months trade until you have mailed your canvas for the previous month. Once the partners list is posted, there is no withdrawing. In order to participate you must have no negative iTraders in the past 6 months, and no neutral iTrader in the past 3 months.

    Partners will be posted on August 7th just after midnight (going into early AM the 8th my time). It’ll be your responsibility to PM your partner for their address. Theme will be up to the artist but I suggest looking at your partners profile to try to avoid themes they don't like.

    Due Dates: Your canvas should be received by your assigned partner by August 31st.
    I strongly suggest that you PM your partner, or post in this thread, the date that you mail your canvas. That way, any delay from that point on will be considered the fault of the postal service and will not be attributed to you. If something unexpected happens and you are unable to meet this deadline then you must communicate through private message to you partner, explain the delay and arrange a new postal deadline. If your partner does not receive your canvas by the last day of the month and you have not communicated to them your mail out date then you will receive a negative iTrader.


    *When you receive your canvas please post a picture here in the thread so we all can admire it.* (this is very important ) But don't post a pic of your canvas until your partner receives it.

    The canvas board: Your art must be created on a 5x7 Canvas Art Board. You can find these at Hobby Lobby, Michaels, Wal-Mart, Amazon, Dick Blick, etc. Coat your finished canvas with a clear protective coating designed for artwork to protect it during it's journey. I suggest more than one coat. I personally, for example, use several coats of Golden brand Polymer Varnish with UVLS (UltraViolet Light Stabilizers) or the comparable Liquitex brand.

    Mailing: The canvases may be mailed out "Naked" or in an envelope. Some of the canvases have been getting scratched in the mail. Some like the thrill or the economy of mailing their canvas naked and they may still do so. Others who decide they would prefer to mail their canvas in an envelope may do so. That decision will be left to the players. If you are an international player or your partner is an international player it is advisable to send it in an envelope or box.

    Postal Costs: In mailing these canvases within the U.S. I have always put $2.45 worth of postage on the envelope and dropped it in a mailbox. To my knowledge my canvases have all arrived successfully with no issues. From my interpretation of the postal rates buried in the info at the U.S. postal services website documents, $2.45 is the proper rate for the weight and shape of these canvases. Be aware that the cost for postage to mail one of these canvases from the U.S. to another country will be higher. Think in the range of $7 up to even $15 depending on the country and even the postal worker that waits on you.


    iTrader: Please leave iTrader points.
    Canvas received by the last day of the month = positive iTrader point.
    If you do not receive your canvas by the last day of the month and you have not been notified by your partner of their mail out date or agreed to an alternate mail out date, please leave a negative iTrader point.

    And remember, please, leave iTrader points ONLY for your trading partner, not for me the host.

    I wanna, but I think I have to pass this month. I just started the Kindness Rocks Project for our town and have a bunch of meetings with businesses and folks trying to help with that. I'm already in over my head.

    If you give me your best you will get mine. If not...well, just remember what goes around, comes around.

    so you don't wonder where I am...I am taking this month and next month off. I will be watching the thread and wishing to join, but I am in an art slump and I'm hesitant to commit.

    Thanks nightowl. No, the month of watercolors didn't wear me out. Actually it was fantastic because I was learning about pan watercolors. I'm just thinking that my art is looking a little stale and I need to step away for a little bit. I will be lurking here however
