So I was about two seconds too slow on the first round (which started yesterday--heehee), and since it's such a small swap, rackycoo said that it would be just fine to do another round alongside the first.  So, here we go! And do check out the original at: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=238508.0

Swap name: Altered Ancestor Round 2
Craftster member who is organizing this swap: joyousbohemian

Limited to a certain number of people? (optional): 6, plus organizer

Restricted to people who all live in the same country? NO

Age requirement? 18+

Swap Organizer himself/herself meets these conditions:
- Has fully read the Swap Info Guide: YES
- Has successfully completed two swaps as a participant: YES
- Is not organizing more than three swaps right now: YES
- Will recruit a co-organizer or give all details to a Swap Moderator if this swap has more than 25 participants: N/A

Swap Organizer will check each participant to make sure they meet these conditions:
- Has been a member for at least one month: YES
- Has posted at least 15 times: YES
- Has completed one swap successfully before signing up for multiple swaps at a time: YES
- Is not currently signed up for more than five swaps: YES
- Does not have any negative feedback: YES
- Participant has agreed that he/she is at least 13 years old: YES

Details of swap:
In this very small swap, participants will email a photo of an ancestor (or just someone who's got a great look about them!) to each of the other 5 participants. Each person will then use the photo in a little work of art (no bigger than 6" by 6" on any one side), and mail it back to the sender. At the end of the swap, each person will have a set of 6 (you have to do one yourself!) altered images of their ancestor that they can frame separately or together.

People's preferences:

JoyousBohemian:
size: no real preference.

thickness: go wild!

lisateacher:
size: creator's choice
theme or color scheme: nope!
thickness:

crafty_dame:
size: variety is great, though probably not too small - so maybe at least 1 side at least 4"? (ie, not as small as an atc or anything!)
theme or color scheme: nope! i generally like dark images, but i'm cool with a more vintagey style as well
thickness: i'm super cool with thickness, and tend to have issues doing "paper only" - i MUST add other stuff! how does everyone feel about thickness?

the_trademarks:
size: 6" by 6", I really want them to be all the same size
theme or color scheme: Nothing that comes to mind. I just want it to be pretty and not creepy.
thickness: whatever thickness people want to make.

neverseenblue:
size: 4x6 or 6x6 would be fine I think a variety would be fun
theme or color scheme: I dont have any particular themes in mind, but as for color I really like brown/green, brown/blue combinations.
thickness: Thickness is not a problem for me.

squirrelgirl:
size: I like that 6x6 size
theme or color scheme: my family is Hispanic so any Mexican influences or themes would be nice.
thickness: different thicknesses are okay

I'll be sending out everyone's addresses and e-mail addresses shortly.

I would feel bad sending a picture of a relative Tongue

pizzacravings, i think the idea is to honour the ancestor, so there'd be nothing to feel bad about!

i'm SUPER DUPER interested, but i'm wondering when the send date is?

pizzacravings--I like what crafty_dame said about honoring ancestors.  But if that's still uncomfortable, then for sure you could send a vintage-y picture of yourself, or even a vintage picture of someone you have never met!

crafty_dame--I'm going to schedule the send-out dates for every other Monday, to give us two weeks to work on each picture.  So you won't have to send out all at once! How does that sound?

and welcome, lisateacher!
