Post Project Discussion: The Landscape in Miniature


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

Title: The Landscape in Miniature
Project Leader: vmrs
Relative Difficulty: Irrelevant
Type Restrictions: Any Type
Medium: Any Medium
Subject: Not Applicable
Days open for signups: 30
Maximum participants allowed: 18

Description:

This projectís theme is "The Landscape". A landscape is by definition any painting where the majority of the subject is natural. Buildings and animals are allowed in a landscape as long as they are complimentary and not dominant. All mediums with the exception of photography are welcome.

Due to recent postal hikes, this project is for ATC size (2.5 inches by 3.5 inches) only, as they are easiest to mail and it seems to be the size people prefer. We are also limiting the number of participants to keep postal costs down, so join in quickly!

This project is an exchange. For this project you will be required to create and mail an original card for each participant. For instance if ten people join then you will need to make nine cards. I know it sounds like a lot but it is great practice and itís nice to get actual mail from around the world. You will have four months after the thirty day sign up to do your cards.

Before mailing your cards, remember to scan or photograph them. Please do not put the image into the forum until you have received a pm saying theyíve been received, that way itís a nice surprise. Please remember to PM people when you receive a card from them.

Please send me your address via PM when you sign up.

And have fun! 

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.

Didn't help that I muddled around for quite a bit, I've been meaning to do this for months!
I have everyone's addresses so far, if anyone's moved though let me know.

Re: Project Discussion: The Landscape in Miniature

Hi Ai! Glad you joined.
Kurlie, I have the same problem. I have so many photos, I always think I'm going to remember what folder a certain photo is in but of course I never do!
This is going to be so fun!

Hi Meimei, good to see you!
My pm's were acting funny, so if you get a blank message from me, don't worry, I haven't quite lost my mind yet!

Yay!

Thank goodness autismart reminded me to sign up. That's the second time I've put in a project and forgot to enter it. Last time J had to tell me!
