When you look on the internet (Pintrest, Instagram) you may have noticed that hand lettered quotes are much around lately. And if you're addicted to it as I am, this is the perfect swap for you :)

You will have ONE partner to who you will send a hand lettered quote on an A5 size medium. You can use many techniques: ink, pencils, water color, ... on many different mediums like regular drawing paper, aquarelle paper, parchment paper, etc. Really, technique and medium is up to you! You can make it in only one color or as many colors as you like. If you want, you may also add some doodles or little drawings, borders, extra elements. But please, put some effort and love into your work and don't just draw a few words on a piece of paper. Make it beautiful and inspirational for your partner. Send it in an envelope.

I will allow newbies with a well filled-in profile to this swap, because we were all newbies once and many of them are really enthuastic and have great ideas too :) I will check every profile before asigning partners.

If you have any suggestions or questions, please don't hesitate to contact me.

Have fun lovelies!

ATTENTION: I moved the swap deadline to Monday 2nd of June because of a prolonged weekend in many countries. Thursday 29th is Ascension day and many public services will be closed on Friday as well.

Hello! This might be a silly question but what size is an A5?

heartcore1985 05/14/2014 #

Sorry for my late reply but an A5 size = 210 x 148 mm or 5.8 x 8.3 inches :)

I would like to join this swap, but sorry, I´m from Sweden and "hand lettered quote" isn´t in my English vocabulary (yet) =) Does it mean I will do a nice decorated paper and write any of my favorite quotes on it? Can it be a quote by me or have it to be by someone famous?

heartcore1985 05/22/2014 #

Sevofluran, you're right :) That's what the description is about! Writing/drawing a quote in decorative lettering (by someone famous or even one you wrote yourself). Hope it is clear to you know.

Profiles have been checked and I had to ban one person from the swap because his/her profile wasn't filled in and it seems the person hasn't been online anymore since the beginning of May. Now I'm just waiting to assign partners :)

If you might have any questions or when there's a problem, please don't hesitate to contact me dear people! Have fun :)

Poster board ? Or what ?

What do you mean with poster board? You are free to choose on which kind of paper/material you hand letter the quote on. Hope this is a bit clear to you :)
