    Winter Tomtens and Gnomes ~ Due February 5th

    Swap Due Date - February 5, 2020
    Signup/withdraw date - none
    Number of Cards - 3 for 3
    Number of participants - 24



    Tomtens and gnomes seem to be everywhere this year! They're cute, helpful, friendly, fun and they seem to be legendary as well. But what exactly is a tomten? A mythological, Scandinavian sprite who generally is found on a farm. They are short (not above 3 foot) have a large, usually red pointed hat on their head. They traditionally wear ragged clothes in dull colors like navy or grey. They also tend to have long bushy beards and mustaches, most often white. They are a much like a Christmas/winter gnome and both are welcome here.

    For this swap we will have two groups: a HD/HP Group and a Collage Group. Please indicate which group you'd like to be in... or both. If you join both groups you will need to send 3 cards for each group, no mixing. I will exchange like media only.

    What should my card contain?

    A tomten or gnome. Doing something. You can put them in a farm, a family home, out in a winter scene, with an animal or unaware human, asleep in a tree…..whatever inspires you! They can be realistic, whimsical, closeups of faces or in landscape scenes.

    I will do the mixed media collage group. Are you allowing house shaped like the one example?

    Welcome CQ! Glad you’re here. I’ll add you right now. Yay!

    No house shaped cards please. The example is an adorable gnome card ... as an idea... but if you did a house it would still need to be on a standard 2.5 x 3.5 card. You could fill in scenery to complete a card with a house on it.

    I like this one... not sure if it emphasizes his short stature enough though?
