    Hand-drawn Hand-painted You're Tellin' Me? Swap Due Aug 17, 2022

    Swap Due Date – August 17, 2022
    Please communicate. Because this is a mail out/ mail back swap, let's stop sign ups on JUL 17.
    Number of Cards: 3 for 3
    Number of Participants – Unlimited
    Media: HD/ HP

    Hand-drawn/ hand-painted You’re Tellin’ Me? Swap!
    The cards will TELL YOU what to draw!

    Welcome! Read on. I hope you’ll jump in.

    Many moons ago, I bought my son a book from Five Below that was page after page of things to draw. (Here is a similar title to give you an idea: 642 Things to Draw) He filled the first half of the book, lost interest, and it has sat on my bookshelf for some time. I decided this could make a fun swap!

    Here’s how it will work:
    -Sign up on the thread to play!
    -PM me your mailing address.
    -I will send you SIX 3.5x2.5 cards with the item listed on it.
    (You will have more than you need to give you options!)
    -You draw/ paint your interpretation of that item.
    -Send back!

    Some nitty gritty:
    -I will cover the postage to mail you the six cards.
    -Keep the word/ phrase/ text on the front of the card.
    -Add a backing! They’re thin pieces of paper.
    -Include your username, location, date, and swap name on the back of all cards.
    -3 cards are required to play. A 4th hostess card is optional, but will be loved.
    -When you’re ready to mail, PM me for my address.
    -Include 1 Forever stamp or $1 for internationals.
    -You can provide an envie, or I will. Either is fine.
    -Leave iTrader for me and Rep Points for your artists.
    -No stickers on your cards. No white backgrounds.
    -Have fun! I hope you’ll decide to play!

    Some example cards (pulled at random): guitar player, bear, doctor, secret garden, your dream house, lizard, graffiti, something that sparkles, tower

    Who wants to draw?
    Remember… sign up, and PM me your address.
    I will send you 6 cards, you send me back your set!

    I will bold your username when final cards are in-hand to me.

    This sounds interesting!
    You didn't mention it being a no withdrawal swap, so I'll assume I can withdraw later?
    I just don't want to commit to a no withdrawal swap right now.
    PMing my addy to you!

    I love the idea, but I'm always scared of hand drawing, so I'm going to lurk for a bit while I work up my courage.

    Plum - You can certainly withdraw. Life happens. I'm glad you're here to stay for now! I got your PM and will get the cards in the mail to you today or tomorrow. Thanks for playing!

    fundy - Nothin' says you have to be a great drawer! Feel free to jump in-- all drawing abilities are WELCOME! I'm happy to have you lurking... no pressure!

    Fantastic idea! It will challenge me to do some hand drawing even though I am much more comfortable with creating collages. Have PM'd my address.

    Okay, so my word for this year is "Stretch", so I guess this is a good opportunity to practice my word in my art. So, this is me, being brave, pushing myself off the lurkers' couch and saying "please sign me up". . .
