    Media- depends on group

    I am in Texas

    Guidelines/Rules

    1. In order to participate in this PAT, you must:
    • Have an established iTrader rating of +15.

    4. Each ATC must be the standard ATC size of 2.5 x 3.5 inches (unless other wise specified).
    5. Each ATC must be original and unique.
    6. Follow the themes requested by your group participants EXACTLY. Theme is the main focus of a PAT, so no deviations from theme requests are allowed. Cards will be returned if request theme not followed.
    7. No bulky embellishments.
    8. ATCs must have a sturdy background. (Use cereal box paper cardboard glued to the back of your card if paper is flimsy).
    9. Each ATC must be in an individual plastic sleeve.
    10. Each ATC should be labeled on the back with the swap name, your username, your real name, date of creation, your location, group number, and recipient name.

    Mailing Guidelines:

    1. Please mail ATCs in a business sized envelope, spreading the ATCs over the space of the envelope.
    2. Please protect your ATCs from damage in the mail by including a card stock background or folder, or by placing in penny sleeve.
    4.**Please place your address on an index card or a stick label with a USA stamp on the back (washi tape the stamp to the back of your address Label. Envelope with a surprise will be provided for you if you follow all directions.
    5. **CRITICAL INFORMATION- When mailing your envelope to me- Please put your swap name, your AFA name and group # on the back of your envelope. This is a good practice when ever mailing your cards out (to any swap).

    International Player:

    I want all international player to play- Stamp will be provided for you if you are not in possession of one.

    Make Note:
    CARDS NEED TO BE TO ME EITHER ON OR BEFORE December 5th. Late ATCs--regardless of the reason--will result in a neutral iTrader and possibly each of the other participants in your group(s). No ATCs- will result in a negative iTrader not only from me, the host, but also from your fellow artists in your group(s). When you are ready to mail your ATCs, please just private message me for my address ( I am in TEXAS, USA). iTrader will be given when ATCs are received by me and appropriate theme material is verified.

    Definitions
    Simplistic- 1 subject (example: Pink Poodle or coffee cup )
    Advanced- a difficult subject that needs research (example: Character Umbrella Academy or Kakapo)

    *A host ATC would make me a very HAPPY GIRL but is never required.

    *After you have received your ATCs please make sure to leave an iTrader for your host (me) and for each participant in your group(s).

    ancientplanter i am putting you in group 2 - English castle needs to be looked up. If it is just castle then group 1 would be appropriate

    Monroy28, then please just make it a castle. I don't feel good enough for Group 2 - I'm definitely not advanced! Also, you had put it down in Group 2 as an English Cottage, not a castle.

    Ruthe can the figure drawing be whimsical cartoons, I never have drawn these I am in fear I can't get this right?

    Monroy28 what happens if I cant get this subject, that may result in my first bad itrader rating?

    I have tried this but can't get anything realistic, best I can do is this sketch of figures ( will be colored and details added ) this is a rough sketch.

    I'm right there with you, Robin, where figure drawing is concerned! I will of course try my best, but I suspect what I end up with will be rather comical or whimsical! That's why I asked to be put back in my original choice of Group 1 and change my theme to simply "castle" instead of English Castle (or English Cottage, as Monroy put it) in Group 2. Whimsical castle works for me, just in case that's what you need to do, Robin!

    I'm following and lurking and was thinking about joining group 1 if I felt I could draw the subjects. I know I can't draw figures. I'm lousy at just faces, let alone whole bodies. I'll be checking out the other groups though. PATs are my favorite.

    I've never done one of these before.

    To make sure I understand "What's in my profile" - I need to look at the profile of each person in my group and make an ATC for each person based on one of their listed interests, likes or themes, and then send all the cards to Monroy 28.

    If I have that right then I'd I'd like to join Group 5.

    For my Group 1 figure drawing theme, just give your best work. PAT's are meant to be fun. Here is some cool past work artists have sent me.
