    De-Stash Chunky Swap 2.0 ~ Due June 6, 2020

    Due Date: June 6, 2020
    Number of Cards: 3:3
    Number of Participants: 20 FULL... NO WAITLIST
    Media: Mixed Media

    ITEMS LIST


    De-Stash Chunky Swap 2.0 ~ A No-Withdrawal Swap

    For this swap, I will be mailing an envelope of items from my stash. The first round was a hit, so I'm running another round.

    Swap Requirements:

    • If I send you an envelope, you are required to complete the swap without knowing what is in the envelope. This is a no withdrawal swap, so I will leave neutral itrader to those who don’t complete the commitment to this swap.
    • You need to use at least 3 of the stash items on each chunky. Just like the T2T swaps, using it can mean cutting it, flipping it over, using it as a tool, etc. Please add other items from your own stash, as well. These are meant to be finished pieces of art, so please put in the time and create a focal point. Please list the items used ~ can be on the back of the chunky or an a separate note (up to you).
    • Chunky pages should be 4 x 4 inches in size, securely made & sturdy. If you can bend or fold the chunky pages easily, it is too thin. One piece of card stock is not thick enough (think cereal box thickness, at least).
    • Chunky pages are 2-sided. The back does not need to be elaborate, but decorate it in some way (a decorative paper is fine). Also include your information on the back: name, AFA user name, swap name, title, location, etc.
    • Embellishments, fibers, and dangles are encouraged, but not required. Depending on the weight, postage cost may be more.
    • Chunky pages that are received that are not sturdy or do not follow the rules will be returned to you at your own expense. It is not fair to the other artists that follow the rules. So, please take the time to read over the requirements.
    • Please leave half an inch on the left side without embellishments for binding purposes, but don't leave it plain. It should still be part of the page, but the receiver should be able to punch holes for binding (if they choose).
    • Do not add binding holes (the artists that receives them will do that themselves).
    • When you sign up, let me know that you have read the requirements and are aware that this is a no-withdrawal swap. Also, send me your address in a PM so I can send an envelope your way.
    • Host cards are never a requirement (but are always cherished when sent).



    Mailing:

    • Protect your chunky pages in some sort of protective plastic, and package them securely in a small bubble wrap envelope. I will re-use the envelope when I send returns.
    • Please include a large label with your name and address clearly written on it.
    • Postage: Both US and international artists must pay for their own return postage; either well concealed cash or US stamps. U.S will be approximately $4, and international will range from $10.50 to $14.75. I will cover the costs of the envelope of de-stash goodies.
    • Artwork that arrives late, will be returned at your expense.




    Feel free to share your artwork in the thread. It is always inspiring to see the work of others.

    When you receive your returns, please leave itrader for me and rep points for the artists whom you receive work from.

    Yes please! I've read the rules and understand that this is a no withdraw swap. I'm so excited for more chunkies!! I have greatly expanded my stash of fibers and I'm excited to use some of them.

    Rachel,
    I need your address. I thought I had it, but must've cleaned up my inbox.

    I am lurking. The virus has wreaked havoc with our office - but I still have to go to work every day.
    The chaos has robbed me of my muse!
    Sure hope things get back to "normal" soon.

    I thought the last destash chunky turned out well and I'd
    like to join this one to add to my collection. I realize this is a no withdrawal swap.

    Got my envie of trashy items yesterday. Same rules pertain as the first swap, prex? Do we need to list what items we used on each chunky page?

    I haven't played in a while. I would like to re- start my play with this cool swap. I understand it is a no withdrawal swap. You will need my new addy.

    Received my stash goodies and the creating has begun! Cool stuff - the first one may not even need anything from my own stash.
    No new nothing! Must de-stash bit by bit!
