    Person, Place, and Animal Zetti Due May 30, 2020

    Swap Due Date - May 30, 2020
    Signup/withdraw date - None, just make sure cards arrive in time
    Number of participants - Any
    Number of Cards - 3 for 3
    Media – Collage
    Person, Place, and Animal Zetti

    Yay! We made the Home page!

    This swap will be to make three different Zetti cards. One should be a person, one a place, and one an animal. The only restrictions are no thick embellishments and the main subject cannot be just made of stickers. Please ask if you are unsure what a zetti is. I have copied this description from amee.burton's post:

    "Zettiology is 'Sustained Confusion.' When you look at Zetti style artwork you will probably notice animal and people parts being cobbled together into one form, with outlining and doodling all around to make the fusions not so confusing. This makes for original, quirky art that is a little fun or silly.
    Crafters often use black and white elements mixed alongside bright colours for their Zetti creations.
    You may also find whimsical words or sayings handwritten or printed in an equally whimsical font alongside a Zetti creature.
    Another way to think of Zetti art is to start with a human or animal figure (that is, with reality), then blend it with something fantastic or other worldly (that is, fantasy), such as adding wings to a child's body. Add in other unexpected details such as striped legs or cone hats to make the new Zetti creature even more incongruous.
    I guess you could think of Zetti as taking traditional ideas and blending them in nontraditional ways. You could take creatures you would doodle, then cut and paste them together at a whole new level. Use patterns and textures that contrast with each other as you form your new creature.

    So to sum up, ways I have discovered to make your Zetti art are:

    Aim to make the ordinary into something whimsical or from a fantasy world
    Use contrasting textures and patterns
    Use lots of bright colours but mix in some black and white patterns such as stripes
    Use mismatched faces and bodies
    Add body parts, clothing and/or wings to a creature who doesn't usually have them
    Give your creatures fantastic hats and crowns
    Combine the quirky, odd and whimsical to make a new Zetti creature
    Use lyrical, poetic, handwritten sayings or text/li>
    Use outlining and doodling to bring all sorts of elements together
    Article Source: http://EzineArticles.com/3704797"

    General info:
    - ATCs should be the standard size of 2.5" x 3.5" on sturdy card
    - A hostess card would be cherished, but never required
    - Send each card in individual protective sleeves.
    - Put your name, username, the date, and swap name on the back of each card.
    - Please PM me for my address when you're ready to send your cards.

    Mailing Info:
    US Players. Please send a self addressed envelope with one forever stamp.
    International Players. Please send a self addressed envelope and enough postage or cash to cover amount paid to mail to me.

    No cards and no communication by the swap deadline will result in a neutral rating. Please let me know if you run into problems or have to withdraw.

    Showing your work on our site is not required, but it is always appreciated. We all love to see what everyone else comes up with. We love art! That's why we're here!

    Lurking. I love the look of zetti, but I always have trouble creating it. I'll see what I can do!
