Nah, the main continental exchange problem will probably be time! Those of us who have intercontinental partners will likely need to mail out a tad early. BTW, that could be specified, if Robin could do it. Match people who'd rather not mail intercontinental, etc. Another headache, huh, Robin?

I don't mind an across the seas partner.

Re: Colored Pencil Secret Art Exchange!!

I don't mind either, I just have to mail mine a few days earlier which isn't a problem. It would probably be cheaper, and it might not get lost if people were matched up with people that lived in the same country. But mail gets lost even when mailed locally so that probably doesn't matter.

Re: Colored Pencil Secret Art Exchange!!

I don't mind either! I figure it's sort of an inherent risk. As far as hint-dropping... um. I like weird stuff. And skulls and spiders and things with wings. hahaha... Flowers are cool too

Re: Colored Pencil Secret Art Exchange!!

I don't mind mailing intercontinental - it will probably take the same amount of time if I mail within India

As far as dropping hints go... I love baby elephants. I've a huge collection of baby elephant images that I've Googled from all around the world. Someday, I hope I will be good enough to draw one. They are soooooooooooooo cute!

Re: Colored Pencil Secret Art Exchange!!

Intercontinental doesn't neceassarily affect the time arriving - I have posted several all on the same day to the States and even on the same coast they can arrive days apart - some take 4 weeks while another has taken 4 days???? Who can figure our different postal systems???

Here in Oz if you mark it card only it is a cheaper postal rate too - so look at that too folk.

Oh and Sarah we should be paired .....all the creepy-crawly, deadly beasties over here - you'd be in 7th heaven !!

Ah thanks you guys! Just a little panick from my part. Anyway, I'd still love to join!

Dropping hints: clowns = iew, and I'm a sucker for vegetable/fruit still-lifes and scenery hinting at almost forgotten times, old kettles 'n cutlery, old stoves, weathered woodwork..ooh and venetian carnaval and...

Re: Colored Pencil Secret Art Exchange!!

For picture ideas, since we live all over the world I think it would be cool to do something specific to our area. Such as flowers, scenery, people. Just a thought, who ever gets me I would LOVE that.

Re: Colored Pencil Secret Art Exchange!!

Y'know... I'm just going to be thrilled with whatever someone sends me! Although, clowns aren't at the top of my list...

Personally? I want to be surprised! Surprised by what I receive, & by what others post as they get 'em. So no wip's, right Robin?

Re: Colored Pencil Secret Art Exchange!!

No! Don't do a public wip, it will spoil the surprise. If you'd like feedback, have a question, etc., I'll be glad to help out if you think it would do any good.

Also NOT going to do any matching...by time zone...by "hints"...by clown-o-meter... Just going to do it randomly.

Mine is sorta summery, too, I guess. It's something I've been wanting to do, and now I'm doing it, and it's one heckuva lot of fun!

Robin, can we mail it out when we get it finished, or should we wait to mail it until August 31? Should we post it as soon as we get it and reveal who the artist is? Or should we wait until you say we can post it? Maybe you told us once already, so sorry if I am making you repeat the rules!

Re: Colored Pencil Secret Art Exchange!!

Ok, Robin, I am a lot nervous, but count me in. I am always fearful of doing things for someone else, but guess I better learn to paint on a time schedule. Thanks for the invite, nervous but looking forward to it.

As for likes I like most anything. I collect wolves, Native American Indian art.

Thanks

No hints, JayD! It's supposed to be a surprise! I am waiting patiently to find out today who I am going to be doing my drawing for.
