    Ballpoint Pen - Again!, October 1

    Swap Due Date - October 1, 2019
    Signup/withdraw date - any - please communicate
    Number of Cards - 3:3 or 6:6
    Number of participants - unlimited
    Medium - Ballpoint pen only
    Hand Drawn

    Let's get our ink on ~ again!!

    I've hosted ballpoint pen swaps before and the artwork never ceases to amaze me! I just love to see what can be done with a mere ballpoint pen! This is a hand-drawn only swap, depicting anything you'd like. The one absolute hard and fast rule is that the only medium you may use is a ballpoint pen. Please, no other embellishments.
    There are many ballpoint pen varieties out there and you can find them in all colors... it is entirely up to you. I mostly use the "free" blue or black ones from the bank. (My sister always reminds me that there aren't really free pens at the bank, but I disagree!)

    Just have fun!

    Please enclose SASE with same amount of postage it costs to reach me. International, please enclose a well-hidden $2 and address label. Please PM me if there is any problem.

    Who wants to draw in ink?

    Lurking for now. I enjoyed our last time, just want to be sure it is done in time. And I have to ask myself: use color?

    glad to have you here Lorna! and I too struggle with that question ~ I usually fall back on just one or two colors; seems to simplify things when working I'm working with ballpoint pen... but I have seen some amazing color images all from ballpoint pen

  11. Thanks Lorna thanked this post

    Lurking for now... but... how are those pens not free? They encourage folks to take them, and everywhere you go in southern Oregon those are the pens being used; every restaurant the waitstaff uses those pens. Fabulous advertising for that local bank!

    I take the pens from my church on purpose to leave at other places. You never know whose hands it will fall into. Plus, they write the best!!
