    September 5x7 Canvas Board Trade

    Deadline to sign up: 9 September
    Mail-by date (try to mail by this date): 23 September
    Deadline to get to your partner: 30 September
    Open Theme, HD/HP or Mixed Media (You do not need to make something based on your partner’s profile, so you are allowed to work on it before partners are assigned.)
    Substrate: 5x7 canvas board.


    HOW TO JOIN and RULES:
    ~Players have until evening (U.S. Central time) on 9 September to sign up. I will assign partners on the morning of 10 August (U.S. Central time.)
    ~Players MUST be able to commit; you cannot withdraw after partners are assigned. Please, no negative iTraders in last 6 months, no Neutrals in last 3 months.
    ~Players must PM their partners and trade addresses once they have been assigned.
    ~Keep your partner and the thread posted on when the canvas was mailed. Let your partner and the thread know when you have received your partner’s canvas.
    ~International players welcome – so just be aware that if you get an international partner, then it may cost more to mail the canvas, and it will also take longer to reach your partner.


    CREATING THE CANVAS
    ~Open medium on 5x7 canvas board. (Can be HD/HP, mixed media)
    ~You can start canvases early or wait to be assigned a partner – you do not have to make something based on your partner’s profiles, but you certainly are welcome to do that if you want to make it a little more special.
    ~If you can, we would just love it if you can post a picture of the canvas you made after your partner receives it! (Not before…we don’t want to spoil the surprise!)
    ~Consider coating your canvas with a clear protective coating designed for artwork to help protect it on its journey. Definitely do this if you use mediums like pencils, charcoal or chalk pastels.
    MAILING THE CANVAS
    ~Canvases should be mailed early enough to make it into your partner’s hands before the last day of the month.
    ~The U.S. postal service will give you a tracking number with no extra charge when you mail the canvas. Please give this tracking number to your partner as proof the canvas has been mailed. (We have had canvases take the scenic route before, so tracking really helps to make sure they don't get too lost.)

    ETTIQUITE RULES
    ~Do not join if you aren’t sure that you can commit to making a canvas. We understand that life doesn’t always follow the rules, so if something unexpected happens, PM your partner and work it out with them.
    ~Communicate, communicate, communicate! You MUST PM your partner if you aren’t able to meet your deadline. No communication WILL RESULT IN NEGATIVE iTRADERS! No one likes giving those out, so please, if you are delayed for whatever reason, just let your partner know ahead of time.

    iTRADER
    ~Positive iTrader = given to your partner when you receive your canvas. I, as the host, do not get an iTrader.
    ~Negative iTrader = no canvas by the deadline and no communication.


    Who would like to play? (And please help spread the word - the more players we have, the better!)

    So sorry for the delay - I threw my back out on Saturday, so I spent the weekend trying not to aggravate it. I extended the sign-up date to make up for the delay.

    I would like to play again this month. My piece for Prex79 went out today, but we have been in communication about the delay.

    Oh no, Foxglove! Back pain is no fun at all. I've been going to P/T twice a week for a few months now (after years of dealing with pain and compensating). I do hope you're feeling better!

    I'm torn, because I'm signed up for too many things, but I want to join....

    I'm going to sign up.

    I understand, PaintedChairs - thanks so much for letting me know!
    Prex, no worries! I have you signed up, but you can withdraw before the 9th if you realize you're over-stretched.
    Synjin and Zhouzhou, welcome back!

    Got my lovely abstract planets from valerie416. Pretty appropriate as I am writing a scifi children's play at present. Lovely! Thanks!

    Synjin, that is awesome about your play! Is it for your students?

    How is everyone doing with the canvas? Hopefully they've started to arrive!

    Mine was mailed, but the scary thing is I can't remember if it was yesterday or the day before! I think I need more sleep...
