    THE MOTHER GOOSE CHALLENGE, handpainted/handdrawn ATC Swap, Due September 13

    Due date: September 13
    Signup/Withdrawal date: September 7
    Number of cards: 3 for 3
    Number of players: Unlimited
    Media: Hand-drawn/Hand-painted only. Color please (pens, pencils, markers, paints)

    This swap theme is all about children pretending, so let’s pretend.....but with a challenge. Pretend you received an exciting commission from a children’s publishing house to illustrate one of the children’s rhymes or tales listed below. (Ok, maybe this happened a few decades ago - LOL - humor me). Anyway, you need to be open to illustrating whatever your number choices dictate. After signing up on the thread, please PM me three number choices, from 1 to 18. The titles below are secretly numbered by me, and I will PM you back with the titles you need to illustrate, according to your blind number choices.
    There will no doubt be repeats, but different interpretations and styles are always fun to see. Do identify the TITLE on the back of each card, along with your USERNAME and the SWAP NAME. Here’s the list I’m working from:

    Little Red Riding Hood
    Owl and the Pussycat
    Alice in Wonderland
    Hansel and Gretel
    Mary Mary Quite Contrary
    Goldilocks
    Peter Peter Pumpkin Eater
    Cinderella
    Jack and the Beanstalk
    Little Miss Muffet
    Mary Had a Little Lamb
    Little Boy Blue
    Rupenzel
    Three Little Kittens
    Little Bo Peep
    Old Mother Hubbard
    Thumbelina
    Jack and Jill

    MAILING: Please PM me for my mailing address when cards are ready to send. each card should be placed in its own plastic sleeve. Spread and lightly tape cards (Washi tape or painter’s tape) to travel as flat as possible. Be sure to include an address label and one Forever stamp for returns. INTERNATIONALS, please send $1 or a Global Forever stamp.

    I'd like to give this a go. Had a big book of nursery rhymes and tales when I was a kid - my siblings and I tore it up with endless reading and rereading.
