USK Urban Sketchbook Moley Tip-ins~Due January 15, 2016

Swap Due Date - January 15, 2016
Number of Cards - 4:4 (one group) or 8:8 (two groups)
Number of participants - 8 groups of five players
Media - Hand Drawn / Hand Painted SPECIFIC MEASUREMENT 3 x 5

USK (Moley) Tip-In Swap




This a CAT themed swap, drawing pages that can be mounted into an Urban Sketchbook. A USK is an accordion cardstock sketchbook. It is available on Amazon. com

A link: http://www.amazon.com/Urban-Sketch-B...an+sketch+book


This sketchbook has a total of 18 pages, 10 one side, 8 on the other and can be displayed standing up.

In this swap you will make pages that the recipient can mount into their own USK.
The measurements of your artwork must be 3 x 5 3/4 . This is slightly smaller than the page it be mounted onto. The advantage of receiving pages to paste is that your precious moley won’t get lost or forgotten in transit. Pages are set to me and I will redistribute according to the group you’re assigned.

Artists will sign up into groups of 5. This is a CAT (Choose a theme) and you will offer to draw 4 images on the theme of your choosing. Special note, in CATs you cannot draw 4 identical cards, each should be unique.

Rules, Rules, Rules

Mailing deadline is January 15, 2016.

This is hand drawn/hand painted ONLY swap. No embellishments please, your art should be flat.

Please work on quality paper, like cardstock or watercolor paper. Your pages need to measure 3 by 5 . Thin paper will wrinkle, bleed or distort when mounted by the receiving artists.

You can sign up for a maximum of two groups. Two groups equals making a total of 8 pieces of art. Your returns will be enough to fill one side of your USK.

Please mail your completed work so that is it secure. It will fit in a regular business sized envelope, but should be sandwiched between cardstock to prevent mangling in the post.

Please include a LARGE return address label and two stamps for your returns. When mailing your tip-ins please indicate which group you are participating in. I will provide return envelopes.

I will cover returns for the first 5 internationals.

May I be number 5 in Group 2. I think I can do brightly colored faces and love birds. No wait, that is what the other people do. Okay, I'd be happy to *get* bright faces and love birds. cool!

I'm thinking on what I might do. This is a great swap idea!

Cards

I went right to work- this was SO much fun. I like the larger size. Here are my cards:

QUESTION- how do I prepare them for travel? Seran wrap or plastic bag or similar?
