A new project has been announced in the WetCanvas! project system!

Title: Easter Card Exchange
Project Leader: Desiree
Relative Difficulty: Irrelevant
Type Restrictions: Any Type
Medium: Any Medium
Subject: Not Applicable
Days open for signups: 20
Maximum participants allowed: 30

Description:

This is an Easter Card Exchange, you will produce one original Easter Card.
You may include how you celebrate Easter or some things about where you live and you will send it to only one person.

I will compile a list of participants and I will PM everyone their exchange persons information. It will be a surprise for each recipient so do not post until your exchange person notifies you that they have received your card.

PM me your information as soon as you sign up for the project. Then get busy painting or drawing or just creating your card.

On Feb 20th I will send everyone a PM with your exchange person.
Please send out all your cards on or before March 1, 2008 if you are mailing to members within your own country or Canada to US and vice versa. Cards that are being sent overseas from you should be mailed a bit earlier. This way we should all be receiving our cards about the same time.

Once you receive a card, PM the sender and tell them that you have received their card and how wonderful it is. The sender(original artist) should then go in and post the card under final entries and tell why they painted it, what medium they used etc. Once it is posted the receiver should go into the final entries and post a comment for everyone to see. It also allows all of us to see it and post comments.

Easter is on March 23 this year, lets make sure we get all the cards mailed in plenty of time to arrive before the holiday.

Please do not sign up if you feel you can not finish this project within the time limits. I would hate for someone to not receive a card and have their feelings hurt.

It is an easy project with only one card to create so lets have fun! Please feel free to PM me if you have any questions.

Additional Information:

Remember, in order to help keep the discussions on projects organized, you should post your questions, suggestions, and comments on submitted work here in this thread. By doing this, we allow other non-project efforts to not get "pushed down" by a swarm of project-related threads.

Will PM you my details - have just signed up Desiree.

Have a few things on my plate but 'the more the merrier' they say, so as its only one card why not!!

Just one question - in the details I couldn't see if this is a 6 x 4" or ATC swap or if there are actually no size restriction. Could you clarify that point Desiree?

Thanks

Hi everyone, welcome, I know this will be great fun and being only one card we can do it up fancy. Sue asked the size, this is not an ATC or postcard, its an actual card so it should be folded. With that in mind make it to fit a standard size envelope or you will be frustrated when you go to send it. Cards can be as small as 3x5's or I do mine about the size of a half a sheet of card stock folded. They also have premade cards that you could glue your original piece of artwork to and they usually come with envelopes included in various colors. I think the size of those are at least a 4x6".Check places like Micheals or other art supply places if you want to look into getting those. Hope that answers your questions. I am sorry I didn't explain that more clearly, its my first exchange and I didn't know what to write! LOL

Wow! That's like the error message which appears when an article is published. You may find that you are already signed up and can ignore the message.

Sounds like a bug in the system.

Well I just checked and you aren't signed in but there are already 13 members signed up, so presumably it is a problem with your system.

Hi everyone, well we are coming down to the final days of the signups. Your exchange partners address will be PM'd to you this week. Make sure your paintings are coming along, we want everyone to get their cards in time for EAster. I still need some address for the exchange. Please PM me your address' ASAP. If I do not have address' in time I will have to remove your name since this is only a one card exchange. I hope everyone is painting and getting excited. Make sure you scan or photograph your painting before you send it so when your exchange person recieves it you will be able to post it in the thread.

Desiree, every time I've come to the WC site and see your lovely little ducklings, I've thought "I really should sign up for that, it sounds like fun" so now I have! I'm doing the post card exchange II, and I'm on a roll, so one more by March is no problem! (And I love seeing your beautiful series of fruits for the postcards, too:thumbsup: )

Now.....what to do- ducklings, chicks, or bunnies??......;)

This card is a replica of a traditional Ukrainian Pysanki egg - the way the egg is made is much like batik. The text is a traditional Ukrainian Easter greeting. Each of the items has a symbolic meaning. Jeanne says she likes it - and that's the important thing.

Well, Jeanne of course would like it eskielady because it's wonderful! Would you be willing to tell us the symbolic meanings?
Actually there is a lot packed into this little egg- egg writing was a way to pass along cultural ideas in a preliterate society. Read on if interested. My feelings won't be hurt if you feel free to jump ahead if this gets too long.

The egg itself symbolizes the original source of creation.
The white signifies purity and innocence = birth and the yellow continues this theme adding light and hospitality. The orange adds an element of strength and the red is a call to action and spiritual awakening. The green reminds us of the renewal of spring and the black of the absolute of eternity.
The symbols themselves: the single line represents the continuous thread of life while the double line adds the element of eternity. The wave motif (called a meander) evokes infinity, harmony and immortality. The hashed lines represent both a sieve to separate good from evil and a basket for contained knowledge. The repeating parallel lines represent a ladder - searching and rising above petty problems of life. The triangles represent the trinity and the elements of fire, air, and water and heaven, earth, and air. The flower is a styalized poppy representing joy and beauty while the spikes and dots along the stem represent a lily of the valley - purity and humility. (Then there are the symbols within the symbols but we can skip that.)
Hope this was interesting.
Lynda

Thank you Beth and thank you Lynda for telling us the story. The letters on the side, do you know their meaning?
This is the traditional Easter greeting -the English translation is "Christ is Risen" and the traditional response is "He is risen indeed" Of course it it typically said in Ukranian which doesn't sound anything like the letters look like they would sound I could try a phonetic spelling but I'd mangle it!

bigs
03-08-2008, 02:33 AM
Thank you Lynda for taking the time to explain those wonderful symbols.

I knew some of the basic ones but not the others. Its a bit like the red dyed eggs baked in plaited Easter breads by the Magyar people - the red symbolises the blood of Christ and the eggs are for spring & Christ's new life and there are more but I can't remember them.

I love the way an oral history tradition is passed down and still seen in many of today's customs. I hope what seems like secret meanings are never lost.

I sent this card to Bonnie. It was done in watercolors. I had nothing "Eastery" at home to paint, so I went shopping for the duck and the chocolate bunny and eggs. Needless to say, the bunny and all the eggs were nearly gone before I finished the card. I'm surprised I didn't get any of my chocolate fingerprints on the card. I was really happy with the way this came out. I'm printing it as an Easter card for my family. Happy Easter everyone!!!

Beth - Thanks. I don't know how my computer will do printing these bright colors. I may print up actual photos of the image to attach to the family cards. I'm going to do a test print later today.

Pat - Thank you. Luckily there were enough chocolate eggs left in the bag so I didn't have to rush the painting because of chocolate cravings.LOL

I understand about giving cards away when I have so much fun creating them (but what would I do with all these cards?(I make alot of cards))

when I do a card with reproductions, I print to photo paper and attach to handmade cards (or print to photocards)

Hi,
I have tried every way I can think of to let Jane DeL from Louiseville know that I receieved her card. I don't have the info to PM her, only her name of the envelope, so maybe she will see this, or someone may know what else I can do. I tried several times but with no luck and then the site was down.

Thanks for all the nice comments, the painting was cut up and put onto some heavier paper that had wonderful colors randomly mixed.

I just didn't know it until it arrived!
