View Full Version : 2011 Swap Ideas : PART 2

12-12-2010, 11:48 PM
Okay. So my other post seems to have stalled, but that's ok, because I have had a couple more really cool ideas. I thought I would try posting in this forum this time.

I would like you all to voice your opinions here. Don't be shy!

I want to host lots of swaps, and these are my ideas. I hope you like them. Fill out the poll with the ones you would think about joining (I hope its all of them!)

I will keep the two ideas that were most popular in my last thread.

1. Kings and Queens (p&p)
- A 2:2, or 4:4, swap, where you will create a king and a queen as a set, and get a king/queen set in return.
*Thanks Cindy for putting this idea on the next level!

2. Fish (All)
- I love fish, you love fish, we love fish of all kinds! :)

3. Chess (According to your membership)
-Im still holding out that others will be as interested in this idea as me.

Now for new ideas.

4. Burlesque (According to your membership)
- With the new movie (of the same title), and then there are all the other great movies featuring, dancing, saucy, beautiful ladies, PLUS all the great illustrations, I think its just a great opportunity to portray the costumes, the colours, and the attitude. ;]

5. A Colour Scheme Challenge
2:2, 4:4, or 6:6
- I saw this as a meme on Deviant art and I just thought it would be a neat idea ... and we really need more excuses to play with colours. There would be 6 different colour schemes that you could choose from. You could do 2, 4, or 6, but no doubleing up on the same colour. More details to come (if I do the swap).

The poll is open, so you can vote for any, or all of the 5 choices, but please also post your thoughts as a comment.

fish and chess...

12-13-2010, 12:47 PM
Kings and Queens and Burlesque and probably colors too.

I voted for fish (can this be any interpretation?) And Burlesque because I love doing wacky costumes!

WOOHOOO... Just finished posting all my winter/spring 2011 swaps that I'm hosting! Here's my latest ColourLover's Challenge... http://www.illustratedatcs.com/forum/showthread.php?4109-ALL-ColourLovers-Challenge-Due-April-5th ...that frees up one of your ideas! I think the Kings and Queens idea would go over super well! ...and I'd very much be inclined to participate in the fish one since I'm collecting under-the-sea type cards!

Oooo, the fish are taking over the lead ... bum, bum , bum.
Also, yes EQ they can be any kind of fish.

Meran, THANK YOU for liking the Chess idea too. :)

Kings & queens... with some burlesque thrown in for good measure. That was my vote. :)

12-14-2010, 03:37 PM
I chose burlesque.. I think of all the spreads in all the moleys that I've done in the last couple of years, the burlesque one was the most fun.

the Kings and Queens could be Chess pieces.. I keep thinking of Alice in Wonderland..
I did a drawing years ago of a chess board, in play. it could be done quite interestingly. I'm very surprised not many people have gone for that at all...

I voted fish & colour - but that doesn't mean I wouldn't join up with any of the others, I just felt inspired by fish and colour tonight. I'm thinking I should have voted for chess too.

I like all of the choices especially the king/queen and burlesque. I will be looking forward to it.
