October swap

Post by lyndaejane on Mon Oct 10, 2016 9:07 am

Inspired by all the talk of Chinese Whispers swaps!  You PM me with a picture of something you've made.  I will send the picture to one of the other participants, who will make something (choose whatever you want to make) based on/inspired by the picture: I will also give the participant the name of the person whose original work it was and they will send their new piece to them.

When you receive the new piece, please post pictures of both your item and the one you have received, so we can all see them together.

Sign up by 20th October, post by 10th November.

Oops - you're right there, Alison: as I make most things to send to someone, not sure what I'm going to do either!

Had a brilliant idea for this, then realised that we have to have the item in our possession, hmm, what on earth have I made that I've kept?!!

Or you could beg a friend to photograph something you've given them?

Just did a long post, as I wasn't quite sure I understood what you meant - however, I've just twigged! When I said 'together', I just meant the pictures to be together, not necessarily the items together in one picture. It's so we can see the inspiration piece and the new piece at the same time.

So do we sent the image to work from on the 10th Nov or do we sent the image now and the finished thing posted on 10th? Just making sure.

Sorry me again. - do we send the finished piece via pm to the person or send the actual piece in the post. Most of the ones I have done we just email images about much easier and cheaper.

Glad to have you on board, Cynthia - I was too tired yesterday to organise the next stage, so just as well! Next step is that I will ask you all to send me the picture of the piece of work you want to be the inspiration: I will then decide who your swapee will be and send them whichever picture I've chosen for them to use.

By the 10th November, you must send the piece you have made which was inspired by the picture: that piece will go to the person who's picture it was. Once people start receiving the new pieces, they can post in the gallery both their original picture that they sent to me and a picture of the new piece they have received. Sorry, sounds even more complicated now! Hope that's clear.

Will put your name down now.

Will be in touch with you all later today.

Lynda

Would everyone in the swap please PM me a picture of the item you want to enter the swap.

I will PM you in the next couple of days, enclosing a picture and telling you who you will be making for and sending to.

Lynda

No, Lorraine - you'd be welcome! Please send me a picture of the piece you wish your swapee to use for inspiration - and would Cath and Cynthia please send me theirs as well. Will sort it all out when I get back from our two-day trip.

Okey doke. Mr Green Will have to send to you using my gmail as I'm having mega probs sending with my normal rigoletto email. I can receive no problem, but since moving to Sky I can't send. Think I've got to change the settings but haven't got round to it yet.

So, I got my pic yesterday and didn't have a clue, lol. But, about two hours ago, a light bulb went off. Mr Green

Sounds like you're all coming to terms with your inspiration pieces so far: hope Cath and Cynthia are happy with theirs, too.
