This is the 16th installment of the “Stickers and...” series, and the previous “stickers and a sketch” installments were so popular and so well loved, that we’re going to try making it a sort-of monthly thing. Here’s one for August!

For this swap you can use either a notecard or a piece of paper (even something like printer paper is fine). On the notecard or paper you will make some sort of art. Any topic (non-controversial) is great. Make a sketch, ink drawing, marker or crayon picture, hey, even watercolors would be neat. In any case, choose a style and run with it. Stick figures are totally fine as long as you draw them (or try to) doing something. A bunch of abstract scribbles? Totally fine, too. This is very open ended. It might not hurt (especially if you are artistically challenged) to add a small caption explaining what you drew (or attempted to). Want to title your artwork? Go for it! It doesn’t have to take ages to make, a 5 minute sketch is totally fine.

Still not sure if your art skills are good enough to participate? Don’t be. My art skills are pretty much at stick figure level, and will probably require a caption. This is basically just something kind of fun (or funny?) to tuck your stickers in with. On the opposite side of the spectrum, if you are super artsy and want to create a masterpiece, that would be awesome too! I’m sure it will be fully enjoyed by whoever receives it.

So...in with your sketch, you’ll need to tuck in a sheet of stickers. The sticker rules are the same as usual. A full sheet of stickers, not cut up. Nice, new stickers only. No reward, kiddie (Dora, Frozen, etc), or alphabet stickers, unless your partner specifically requests those in their profile. If the sticker sheets are very small (4”x4” or smaller) then send 2 sheets. Stickers should be dime sized or bigger. Stickers are sender’s choice. So you cannot rate down if you don’t like the stickers your partner sent. If they don’t float your boat, you can always pass them on in the next round.

Rating: if your partner sends some sort of art (or attempt at art, like mine will be), sent it on time, and included and a sheet (or two) of stickers that meet the requirements, then you must rate them as a 5. If you really like the stickers, or the artwork, then a heart is up to you.

Note: if your artwork is done with crayons or ink or anything else that could get on your stickers and damage them, then maybe you should wrap the stickers in an additional sheet of paper to protect them. Or slip them into a ziplock bag if you’re really concerned. But I really think that in most cases, folding a piece of paper around them should be sufficient. Right? Use your best judgment.

Newbies can join this swap with a well filled out profile, established swappers should have at least a 4.9 and no unexplained/unresolved 1’s or 3’s. If you want to participate, but are not sure you can, feel free to check with me. I WILL be checking participants and reserve the right to ban anyone I don’t feel confident will complete the swap. NOTE: DUE TO A HEAVY TRAVEL SCHEDULE THIS SUMMER, I WILL NOT BE ABLE TO ANGEL THIS TIME. So seriously, don’t sign up if you’re going to flake. Serious swappers only. Thankfully, no ones ever flaked on this swap in the past, so hopefully, we’ll be fine.

Please remember, international swaps can take up to 1-2 months to arrive from certain destinations, so please be patient. 🙂

Could we do a drawing in a back of a post card?

Are we allowed to send a bunch of sticker flakes instead of sheets?

Oops! Just saw these comments now! You can definitely do the sketch on the back of a postcard, as long as you put the postcard and the sheet of stickers in an envelope to mail them

And for this swap, we’ll be swapping full sheets of stickers, but if you contact your partner and they would rather have the flakes, then that’s between the two of you. But officially, the rules are a full sheet of stickers. 🙂

Highkey believe I won’t be receiving mine T-T the person sending to me has not logged in in over two weeks.
