    P&P - The OCTOPUS ATC Swap!

    Cards: 3/3 ATCs
    Media: P&P
    Due: November 12th


    If you're taking a peek at the swap, perhaps you too are intrigued by these underwater creatures! So magical, so beautiful. I had been thinking I'd like to host a swap about them, and had been procrastinating, and then the Universe spoke out loud: an octo swam along with me while snorkeling a few weeks ago. We'll can chat about that later...

    ...so please join me as we honor the majesty of these incredible cephalopods!

    Please send only your best work. Let's keep them realistic for the most part. Include $1 for postage, and an address label for your returns. Hoping for a tentacular swap!

    Examples of Underwater Awesomeness:
    Rapa, TempestStudios, Tablynn

    Yeah, I was diving last summer and followed a free swimming octopus around for a while - they are such fantastic creatures

    Ruth: ATC size. Care to join in?

    KosmicG: Welcome! That is so cool. I'm guessing you are dive certified? How big was the one you saw? Mine was just a little buddy. I hadn't really thought about how they move about before I witnessed it. It was slinking along rocks, and would stretch its body waaaaaaaay thin as it moved across. Amazing to see! I felt truly honored.

    I've been diving for more than 25 years by now! Mine was pretty big, it was in the Mediterranean. Stretched out a good meter long. Gorgeous! I love all kinds of cephalopods - the nautilus might be one of my all time favourites. Haven't seen one of those in the wild though... it's would be a real jackpot to see one of those in the ocean!

    Oh, I am so excited for you. How incredible! My hubs is scuba certified, and has wanted me to too...but I am a chicken of the sea. Brock! Brock! The ocean intimidates me, so I stick to the snorkel surface. We might be coming out your way for Oktoberfest, so I may have to hit you up for some good diving spots!

    I've started sketching out an octo. I'm going to play with some watercolor. My niece is visiting, and we both have inky-painty hands. I told her this is a GOOD thing. Means we've been making art!

    Hope you all can steal away some art time this weekend! Octo or otherwise!

    Lurking. If I get my Secret Santa done fairly soon, maybe I can try my hand at octopuses. The examples are amazing!
