Description:

I hosted this swap SEPT of 2015, It turned out great.

We have over 500 people in this swap GROUP, The first 10 that sign up for this swap get to play.

This is an international swap. USA players you can not play in both swaps. Pick one or the other.

If you participated in the last mystery image swap and did not send me the host a return card you also may not participate this round.

Here is how it works. All ten players will get an envelope from me with some mystery items inside. You will get enough to create 3 cards. One for me the host/coordinator, as a thank you gift for mailing out the envelope. blah blah blah, I will enclose a return address label for your convenience

Plus you will make ONE card each for 2 partners. The reason you are getting 2 partners is so that you can see how 2 different artists approached the mystery item.

But there is a glitch, IF you get me as a partner, you need to make me a card as the host and a card as the partner, and they can not be the same cards. You need a second idea. If you do get me as a partner you find I gave you a different colored item to help you.

The items I am sending are upcycled items, and they are all the same. You must be able to create from an outside the box kind of thinking to participate. You wont be getting some scrapbooking embellishments to work with.

Use these items on your cards so that it is visible in some way, yes, you may color it or rip it, or paint it, but leave some of it to be seen somehow. Abstract, zentagles, collage, and hand drawn/painted cards are all acceptable. The goal is to be challenged and think outside the crayon box.

Put some contact info on the back of your cards.

Make sure your cards are have even edges, and measure 2.5 x.3.5, with a sturdy backing.

When I mail the mystery images, I will have made my 2 cards for my partners, and they will be sealed/not visible. Do not open my cards until your work is complete, I dont want to influence your artwork, in any way. No cheating.

You will have a long time to complete these cards. This allows for mailing time to you from me, and time to create.

I will close this swap when I get 10 USA players. This will not change the send by date. But I will mail 2 days after, I close the swap.

Please post in the comments when your mystery items arrives. Please contact me if you dont get the mystery item within a week of when I state I mailed it.

I will angel this swap, after you have contacted your sender 2 times and have rated them a 1. I will also of course, remove that person from our group.

These envelopes are sealed and will go out in Tuesday SEPT 13ths mail. Please post when you get them, right here in the comments section. Please dont say what it is yet till all 12 players comment that they arrived. If you dont have the envelope in 2 weeks for INT please send me a PM. We have some USA players in this swap, you should have your cards in a week, so pm me if they dont arrive in a week.

I received the envelope with the mystery items today :)

You may add more items from your art room to each card. You are not limited to JUST the items sent.

AZmom875 09/19/2016 #

I had a real good question about removing the backing from said mystery item. The answer is yes, as I think that falls under the basic mystery items swap guidelines

Use these items on your cards so that it is visible in some way, yes, you may color it or rip it, or paint it, but leave some of it to be seen somehow. Abstract, zentagles, collage, and hand drawn/painted cards are all acceptable. The goal is to be challenged and think outside the crayon box.

Only one envelope has arrived so far. I see that 4 of the 9 players have an address in the USA, the rest could take 2 weeks to arrive.
