    October 5x7 Canvas Swap

    ***THIS TRADE IS NOW CLOSED TO NEW SIGN-UPS. Please join us next month!***

    Deadline to sign up: 9 October
    Mail-by date (try to mail by this date): 24 October
    Deadline to get to your partner: 31 October
    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 October to sign up. I will assign partners on the morning of 10 October (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!)

    Hi Valerie! I've done quite a few of these in the past. I've just taken a break for a while. I actually got one made ahead of time, so I thought I'd jump back in.

    Yay! Welcome back! I will get you all added to the list.
    Zhouzhou, I am with you - its been a while since I had a chance to make one, and I find it so challenging, but I also have a bigger since of accomplishment when I make something I like!

    LAST CALL! For anyone else who would like to join in or drop out, please do so by tomorrow evening (8pm-ish U.S. Central Time). I am going to do my best to list the partners by tomorrow evening.

    Oh no! I hope your kitty feels better soon! Back in July I think, I had to take mine in for a mystery illness. He's all better now, but I understand the stress and worry that comes from having a sick fur-baby.

    I have my canvas for Zhouzhou drying, so I hope to have it mailed by tomorrow or Saturday.

    I love the flower in a vase!
