USK Tip-Ins Part Two~Due April 1, 2016

Swap Due Date - April 1, 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 3/4 x 5 ¾

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...usk+sketchbook


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 3/4 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

Deadline is April 1, 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 3/4 by 5 ¾. 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 write your group number on your envelope.

Please include a LARGE return address label and two stamps for a return of 4 cards, 4 stamps if you are playing in two groups.

I will provide return envelopes.

I will cover returns for the first 5 internationals.

I HAVE A NEW ADDRESS. It has #242 in it. PM me for it if you do not have it.

I'll choose my themes a little later....I think naming a theme too early, for me, killed some of my muse last time.

I was at Marilyn's last Sunday and we worked jointly on cards. She handed over the beginning of a sunflower card which I promptly started to work on the flowers with pinks and blues.

Over my shoulder I hear, "I love your use of traditional color." It cracked me up and I almost spit out my coffee.

Loved the "non traditional use of colour" (I heard my former art teacher in my head).

The birds are WAY too cool to wear orthopedic shoes- either barefoot (bare claw?) or in cool shoes/boots for those birdies!
