    Inspired by three women artists Swap: Due July 10, 2020

    Swap due date: July 10, 2020

    Number of cards: 3 for 3
    Number of participants: 25 maximum

    Inspired by three women artists Swap: 1)Georgia O'Keefe 2)) Yayoi Kusama 3)Beatriz Milhazes. Hand Drawn/Hand Painted/Origami/Sewing. Due July 10, 2020


    Another inspired swap. This time it is 3 women artists. Two are contemporary and in the Modern period and the other Georgia O’Keefe is known for her bold and innovative art.

    You can try one artist or several. The idea is to be inspired by their style, message, genre.
    Make three different inspired cards. The style and medium can be the same for all three or you can mix it up as you choose.

    Medium: Hand-drawn or painted, sewing, origami, hand-made stamp, etc. No collages, stickers, digital or photography. Handmade art cards only. Check with me if in doubt about your medium. Make something that would be hard for you to give up.

    Use your artistic skills and feel free to use your imagination and unique style. All cards must be original (i.e., no prints or copies).
    Most of all---Have fun!!!

    Requirements:
    *All cards should be standard 3.5” X 2.5” and at least one layer of card stock.
    *Cards should be flat enough to fit in plastic sleeves.
    *Send cards in plastic sleeves.
    *Withdraw early if you can’t do the swap, late cards may be returned if they can’t be swapped out.
    Mailing and postage:
    *PM me for my address when you are ready to send cards.
    * Make sure your user name, location and swap name appear on the back of your ATC’s.
    *Include your username on your SASE.

    * International participants: I love international players. With the Covid-19 outbreak it may be difficult for some of you to get your art to me in the United States. Check with your post office to see what the current situation is. I will pay postage for first 10 players. Please include a SASE.
    *US participants: Include a stamped self-addressed envelope or stamps


    Returns: When you receive your returns, please leave itrader for me and rep points for players.
    An extra card for the host is always appreciated but not required.

    Anyone want to play?

    Hi great news, I love your swaps, so please add me as I am trying to find a way to print out postage so I do not have to go into the post office as we are self isolating. I think I can do it!

    You betcha I want in! Love Yayoi of late and knew nothing of Beatrix. You widen our eyes and knowledge of artists! My favorite is Modigliani, hint-hint. That Bill Traylor one you did was enlightening! Will check in to see what folks are up to!
    Hosted my first swap- Pug Mugs!

    My second swap really rocked! Thanks everyone who joined - HD/HP Fish Out of Water!
