Art Trade

Lisa, whom I know from the moly_x_20 group sent me an email asking for an art trade. As there are phantastic artists participating I joined too. Basically you create one piece of art and get another piece back. It can be a little drawing, a print, a comic or a zine, a photo, a felted creation, a beaded thing... Whatever fits your niche and can be dropped in the mail within a week.
I have to send my art to Dawn. The funny thing is that the day I received the email telling me I´m supposed to send Dawn my creation, I also received the book "1000 Artist Journal Pages" of which she is the author. What a coincidence.
The letter will be off tomorrow and I hope Dawn will like it!

In case you want to join in on the fun, just let me know.

Mim said...

I sent out my first piece but alot of the people that I asked to play have dropped out - so I'm claiming Fernsky!

Hi Fern, of course yu can play and it is pretty easy. I guess Mim has already sent you an email and claimed you :) so I´ll have to find 3 other participants.
Basically you make one piece of art and send it to a certain person in Mim´s email and then pass the email on to another 6 people.

Mim, maybe you can find some others. I´m also still looking for 3 people. If we do not find them, then maybe we won´t get any art.
Maybe you can tell the people that also little pieces are fine... an ATC for example.

Wow, these are so beautiful! I still need to find someone to trade with.

Mim said...

I tried but only a few will play. It took me all of 10 seconds to send something to Lisa, I sent her an ATC from my stash. A few people are going to do it, but more are not.
Oh well...

Hey Mim and Steve,

yeah, it is hard to find 6 participants. For me it is only the two of you. I wonder why, because everybody who doesn´t have time can always just send something small which is already laying around at home (Just like you did, Mim).
Well, I´m glad the two if you are into the fun. :)

why there`s a question mark next to my name?(kidding I know why :p)

I think I know how it works(somehow), so I`m going to send my art to you right?

Hey Joyce, actually you will send your art to Lisa, she´s at the #1 position of the letter and I´m at the #2. Then you pass on the email and put me in #1 and yourself at #2. That way I will get art from the people who you send the email to. :)

Hi Dawn, wow... that was fast. Usually it takes a lot longer for letters to arrive in the States.
I´m glad you like the drawing. It wasn´t easy to draw something for someone you don´t know. Your birthday was yesterday? What a coincidence. The picture arrived right on time.

Nice work!! And you are reminding me that I'm so behind on my moleskin exchanges myself!! :-)

I´ve only got one moly currently, but I really do need to get it out soon.
