The other great part about MMSA, is that all levels and kinds of art are welcomed and appreciated.
Each challenge set has a theme. Here are two I participated in recently. I send in 4 cards for the swap, and as a thank you to the host, a 5th bonus one for them.
1. Repetition and variation
Here are the cards I sent out - I was inspired by Naomi's triangles (which I learned about from Eva). I painted them using inktense pencils, I think hers turned out better than mine, although they did look a lot brighter in person compared to the scans.
And here are the ones I received from Esther, Lois & Iryna.
2. Paper strips
This is one of my favorite challenges to date. The top 4 (Face Off I-IV) went into the exchange, the 5th one (The Twins) was for the host, Honi.
And here are the interesting cards that arrived in my mailbox from Barb, Cheryl, Penny & Wanda.
If you've been paying attention to how MMSA works, you'll have noticed that I only received 3 back for the repetition & variation challenge. The fourth one had a misadventure, and will be featured under another letter of the alphabet.
Have you ever participated in a swap of any kind? How did it work out? Did you have fun?
