    HandDrawn/HandPainted Paisley ~ Due December 22, 2018

    Due Date: December 22, 2018
    Withdraw by Date: Anytime - just please communicate
    Number of Cards: 3/3
    Number of Participants: Unlimited
    Media: HD/HP

    HD/HP Paisley

    This swap is for hand-drawn/hand-painted paisley patterned ATCs. Paisley or paisley pattern is an ornamental design using the buta or boteh, a teardrop-shaped motif with a curved upper end (wikipedia). Check here for inspiration:
    pinterest


    Swap Requirements:

    • Original artwork: Hand-drawn or hand-painted only (no additional media)
    • Standard ATC size: 2.5 x 3.5
    • 3:3 (hostess cards are never a requirement, but would be treasured)
    • Good craftsmanship: send in something that you would be excited to see in your return envelope. I am going to do my best to swap effort for effort.
    • Please make sure your cards are sturdy and earn the description of "card" (not just a piece of paper or thin cardstock)
    • Each card needs to be in its own protective sleeve.
    • Please include swap name, your username, real name, and location on the back of each ATC.
    • No problem if you need to withdraw, but please communicate. Neutral itrader will be given to those who disappear.


    Mailing:
    • US Participants – Please include a legible SASE.
    • 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.
    • 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.



    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.

    These were really fun - makes me wonder if I might enjoy zentangle. I had heard that paisley designs we from India, but also Scotland, and I wondered, since those countries are so different. So looked it up on wykapedia like you suggested, Prex, and it began in Persia, spread to India not long after, and then to Europe where there is a city in Scotland named Paisley, and they do a lot of the designs there. So interesting! I will probably post a picture tomorrow sometime.
