    Art doll bookmarks Handdrawn/Handpainted with mixed media allowed due May 24, 2019

    Swap Due Date -24th May
    Signup/withdraw date - none but please keep me informed.
    Number of bookmarks - 2 for 2, 3 for 3, or 4 for 4 (if we get a minimum of x4 players excluding me).
    Number of participants - Unlimited

    Need some new bookmarks? then this is the swap for you. Like drawing girls, dolls or figures? the this is also the swap for you.

    Your art dolls can be in any style you wish but must be drawn on bookmarks sized 2 x 6 inches.

    Recently I have enjoyed drawing and painting girls over scrapbook papers and collage, and think this would be a lovely technique to go on bookmarks. I intend to make my own bookmarks this way but you do not have to if you prefer you can just hand draw or hand paint on normal card. Here are a couple of pictures of recent girls I have drawn or painted over collage. I am interested to see how this would work on a smaller scale. I love using layers in my art and love to see bits of the collage showing through the faces/clothing of my girls.

    Bookmark Rules-
    1. Hand drawn or /hand painted. However you are welcome to draw on or back with scrapbook paper. Collage may be used in your design but the face at the very minimum must be fully hand drawn and hand painted.
    2. Bookmarks must be fully coloured, no white backgrounds.
    3. Bookmarks must be 2 inches wide by 6 inches tall and vertically orientated, please make sure that they are not too flimsy. Please check and carefully measure your bookmarks before sending.
    4. You are allowed to punch a small hole in the top end if you wish and add a small piece of string or ribbon. But no bulky embellishments please to keep postage costs down.
    5. Please include your username and real name on the back of your bookmarks along with any other info you wish to add.
    6. Host bookmarks will be treasured should you wish to include one but are not required to participate.
    7. Where possible I will exchange effort for effort to the best of my ability and dependant on items received.

    Postage info
    1. The due date is 24th May. Please be mindful that I am in the UK so allow plenty of time for posting to me. Any late bookmarks will be returned to senders. I intend to swap out promptly after due date.
    2. Please pm me when you are ready for my address to send.
    3. Please package your artwork carefully to ensure it reaches me undamaged, and send in individual plastic sleeves or similar protective covering.
    I will need a large return address label or piece of paper with your address on it, but I will supply my own envelopes.
    4. UK players please send either a first or second class stamp for return postage.
    International players please send either $2 USA for 2 items, or $3 for 3-4 items alternatively contact me to pay via paypal.

    I will no longer be sending back returns at my own expense for players who forget to pay, or do not send enough for their returns. If you have multiple returns for more than one of my swaps and want them sending together please discuss with me in advance so I can advise you on the correct price. Thank you for understanding.

    Who wants to play?

    That technique you describe in your samples is intriguing. Did you use watercolors or acrylics or something else?

    They are all acrylics except the pink haired girl who is mostly coloured pencil with a touch of acrylics. You could use watercolour if you cover the collage with a watercolour ground.

    I'll probably end up jumping in toward the end, because I always need more bookmarks, but I'm lurking for now.

    Lurking, I don't do a lot of hd/hp but the possibility to use a collage background might encourage me. And I love bookmarks. I will see if I can come up with something!
    Welcome to take a look at my blog, Instagram account and APC wishlist!
