    GHI Coins Swap (Alphabet Series) ~ Due September 16, 2020

    Due Date: September 16, 2020
    Withdraw by Date: Anytime - just please communicate
    Number of Cards: 3/3
    Number of Participants: Unlimited
    Media: Any (just make sure they fit into a penny sleeve)

    GHI Coins Swap~ Alphabet Series


    For this round of coins, you will be making one "G", one "H", and one "I" coin. In return, you will get one of each. The theme of each coin is one letter of the alphabet. You can have one image that represents that letter or a collage of different items for that letter. Each coin should have the letter visible as a focal point. I hope that makes sense. See below for my examples from the first round of this series.

    Swap Requirements:

    • Coins need to have a diameter of 2.5 inches. If you do not have a 2.5 circle die or punch, please make sure you cut your circles neatly. They do not have to be perfect, but they should not look sloppy.
    • Original artwork only
    • 3:3 (hostess cards are never a requirement, but would be treasured) ~ one of each letter (A,B,C)
    • Good craftsmanship: send in something that you would be excited to see in your return envelope. I am going to do my best to swap effort for effort.
    • Please make sure your coins are sturdy. They need to be thicker than just one sheet of card stock.
    • Each coin needs to be in its own protective sleeve.
    • Please include swap name, your username, real name, and location on the back of each coin.


    Mailing:

    • US Participants – Please include a legible SASE.
    • International Participants - Please include a mailing label with your address clearly written or typed. I will provide an envelope for returns for all international players. Please include a well concealed US dollar bill or US global forever stamp.
    • Please make sure to package your coins securely. We don't want these wonderful works of art to get banged up in the mail.
    • When you are ready to send in your coins, please send me a private message for my mailing address (if you need it ~ I'm at the same address that I've been at since joining AFA). Also, please post in the thread when you send in your coins, so I can be on the lookout.
    • Make sure your coins are mailed in time to be in my hands on or before the due date.



    It is always fun and inspiring when artists share their artwork in the thread, so feel free to do so!

    When you receive your coins, please leave itrader for your hostess (that would be me) and "you rock" points to the players you received artwork from.

    Who's ready for the next swap in the alphabet series?

    Creativity is allowing yourself to make mistakes. Art is knowing which ones to keep.
