Swap 17- "Frame your Quote"

 Tejal here with a brand new swap!! For this month of august, We wanted something different.

So the theme is "Frame your Quote"
How it works.

When you sign up, send us and email with your postal address and favorite quote that you would love to hang in your room.
That quote will be sent to your partner and your will get a quote from your partner to be worked upon.
It made no sense for us to send you a quote that someone else likes...so we want you to email your favorite quote to us, so it actually resonates with you.  

What to do with the Quote

You have to create an A4 size page using that quote as the highlight. Create something like an Art journal page. No Canvas please. Heavy weight CS or 300gsm Watercolor paper or thicker.
It is not necessary to use mixed media. You can simply use inks and stamps to create the page too. If you like doing mixed media, you can do that too. You can use any supplies that you have...no restrictions.

Here is an example of what you can make with just inks and stamps..



Now the nitty gritty details..
1. A4 page only. Not bigger, not smaller. 
Please use a heavy weight paper (300gsm or more) or back your paper with another sheet of paper...so that it doesn't become all floppy

2. Please use a cardboard to pack  your paper, so that it does not get bent in transit. If you use 3D elements in the page, pack it accordingly with bubble wrap. Before your start making, plan how you will pack it. 3D elements will get squished in transit, so plan your page accordingly..or pack accordingly.

3. You all will receive your quotes on 8th August. As soon as the link up closes. We expect sneak peeks within the next 10 days. Last date to send any sneak peek is 23rd August.
One reminder email will be send on 24th if we don't hear from you. After that , we will simply drop you.
So please think and join the swap. We are tired of long lengthy excuses.

We expect your swap to reach your partner no later than 5th September . 

The rest of the rules are the same. No sharing of swaps till we reveal them  on the swap central blog. Once it is on the blog you can share it on your personal space.

We have no issues if you want to watermark your work with a stamp or a sticker to declare it is made by you.

NO PERSONAL MESSAGES ON WHATSAPP OR FACEBOOK OR OUR PERSONAL EMAIL ID'S. ANY COMMUNICATION, QUERIES, DOUBTS HAS TO BE DONE THROUGH THE SWAP CENTRAL EMAIL ID- swap.central.india@gmail.com.

For any further queries feel free to email us and we would help you in the best manner we can.



Hope to see loads of fabulous Arty pages!!
