    Artist Inspired swap: Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera (HandDrawn/Painted)Due Oct 4

    Swap due date: October 4, 2019

    Number of cards: 3 for 3
    Number of participants: 25 maximum

    Nothing is absolute. Everything changes, everything moves, everything revolves, everything flies and goes away.

    Another inspired swap. This time it is Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera. They were married to each other, both artists from Mexico who lived for a short time in the United States. They were influenced by the political reality of their time and Kahlo was influenced by Mexicanidad, a romantic nationalism. Rivera embraced Cubism , post-impressionism, political issues of his time and painted all of these at some point in his career.

    There are so many possibilities in this swap. You can choose to concentrate on one of these artists or do a combination of both of them. You can try your hand at your own self-portrait. You can be inspired Rivera’s Cubism, post-impressionism, and/or political issues of his time.

    Make three different inspired cards. The style and medium can be the same for all three or you can mix it up as you choose.

    Medium: Hand-drawn or painted, sewing, origami, hand-made stamp, etc. No collages, stickers, digital or photography. Handmade art cards only. Check with me if in doubt about your medium. Make something that would be hard for you to give up.

    Use your artistic skills and feel free to use your imagination and unique style. All cards must be original (i.e., no prints or copies).
    Most of all---Have fun!!!

    Requirements:
    *All cards should be standard 3.5” X 2.5” and at least one layer of card stock.
    *Cards should be flat enough to fit in plastic sleeves.
    *Send cards in plastic sleeves.
    *Withdraw early if you can’t do the swap, late cards may be returned if they can’t be swapped out.
    Mailing and postage:
    *PM me for my address when you are ready to send cards.
    * Make sure your user name, location and swap name appear on the back of your ATC’s.
    *Include your username on your SASE.

    * International participants: I will pay postage for first 10 players. Please include a SASE.
    *US participants: Include a stamped self-addressed envelope or stamps


    Returns: When you receive your returns, please leave itrader for me and rep points for players.
    An extra card for the host is always appreciated but not required.

    Anyone want to play?
