    ~ Oriental for All Swap ~ All Mediums ~ Due April 24th, 2019

    Swap Due Date - April 24, 2019
    Signup/withdraw date - communicate please
    Number of Cards - 3 for 3 in any Group
    Number of participants - (?) I may close if it gets to many in a group
    mediums and ATC or ATCoins are different in the the three groups NO BULKY EMBELLISHMENTS Please

    LOL Well they say "You get hungry an hour after eating Chinese Food" I'm hungry for more just a month into my ASIAN Swap.

    Details.... Because people may be in several groups Please do not add gems, charms and other bulky embellishments.
    ~All cards must have an Oriental theme
    ~ GROUP THEME, MEDIA and SIZE listed in each group
    ~ Each card should be a little different (original)
    ~ only send your best work. I will post some tips and links in another post.
    ~ GROUP #, plus username and real name on the back of all cards. Must Include the group number, it will help keep this swap separate from my Asian swap cards.
    ~ Cards should be sturdy but not thick. If marker ink seeps through you should probably back the card.

    Mailing... Mail goes to my Philo POBox the address has not changed if you have it.
    ~ Include the listed info on back of your cards.
    ~ Send your cards in individual protective sleeves.
    ~ US Players send a business sized SASE with Forever stamp (I have plenty of envelopes if you wish to do the large label and unused Forever stamp) Please include an EXTRA OUNCE stamp (or two Forevers ) for people in all three groups. (No Bulky embellishments please)
    ~ International Players please send large addressed label (or paper, not small return address labels). I'll cover the postage.

    See guidelines for extra postage if playing in more than two groups.

    Please have fun with this swap, feel free to share your comments and your art with all of us! I'm here if you have any questions.

    This is a new style for me - just need a little clarification. The media and the size are listed at the top of each group, but what about the theme? Does each player choose their own theme, like a PAT, or will there be three themes listed for each of the three groups (like sub-categories under Oriental)?

    Any Oriental theme you want to make. Themed like any other basic swap.

    I struggled with ideas like making a Geisha group and another with no Geishas allowed, suggesting things like Martial arts. But I decided to just go with an Open Theme. The Media and size is the only reason for the groups. That and It gives the option of doing 3:3 times three groups

    If people want to suggest themes they like, I am happy to make an optional ideas list. But that does not mean anyone will make them, or that you will get what you suggested.

    I'm thinking about it, but as usual I like to get them done before officially signing up. Thinking about 2 groups - #1 and #2. I just haven't caught the coin bug yet.

    Please sign me up for the ATCoins. I'd like to see what I can do with circles as I've not done them before.

    LOL No they only get you kicked to the top of the class, not out. They are lovely. Would you like to be added to any other group? And even though they are not ATCs, please make sure to put group #3 on them. Having the group numbers is an Easy way to keep the oriental swap separate from my Asian swap. I worried the swap names could be confused if I asked for that on the back instead.

    Please sign me up for group 1 and group 3.

    I've been lurking and actually started cards for your Asian swap but I'm still working on them. So this is perfect, I don't have to rush to get them out.

    Will Do. Yes I had hoped Lurkers for the first swap would join in as well as the people that got there cards done really fast. And with three groups you get to trade a lot more art.

    I didn't put the number on it, but the other group didn't have ATCoins, did it? (sorry I'm a rule-breaker...don't like rule-breakers!)

    No, You will be okay. I don't mind having to check the occasional "rule breaker". It is the atcs that can be an issue, and more so with cards coming in at the end of the Asian swap because this swap will also be more active.
