Details of swap:

Make one (large) piece of assemblage art for your partner.
Assemblage is the making of 3D (or 2D!) art that oftens involves using found objects

*** Large based on effort, not necessarily size:

Craftster guidelines:

By Time
-Large = 3 or more hours

By Size
-Large = A shawl, a shirt, a skirt, a set of jewelry with four to five items, a purse

By Price
-Large = $30 or more

We will not be listing themes for this swap in order to give everyone some artistic license in making their piece of art. Please be open to wherever the muse takes your partner and give yourself freedom to play and create ART!! But please keep in mind your partner's absolute dislikes on the questionnaire.

Make sure that your art is wrapped with care for for shipping!! It's always disappointing to receive a broken item.

Here are some posts that have samples of assemblage art:



Here is the previous gallery:

Please Note:

1. PMs should be labeled "Assemblage Art Swap" with the appropriate action - Signup, send, receive.

3. I reserve the right to refuse anyone who has a history of poor communication, late sending, or not meeting swap requirements in any other ways.

4  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / macaron bracelet on: January 14, 2017 09:01:48 AM
I made this macaron bracelet out of polymer clay for a personal swap.  She had it pinned several times on her pinterest so it was an easy decision!  Cheesy

5  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Jigglypuff hoopla on: January 14, 2017 08:59:07 AM
I made this jigglypuff hoopla for mandit1990 in a personal swap.
It's felt pieces on a glittery background.

7  COOKING / Dessert / Gingerbread Muffins on: January 12, 2017 07:42:19 AM
These One Bowl Spiced Gingerbread Muffins were really good.  I tried the recipe because it only used one bowl and I am lazy   Cheesy

Of course I had to alter the recipe a bit,  I rarely make a recipe as is. 
While I love ginger I am not a big fan of nutmeg or clove so I almost always cut back or cut out those ingredients.

Here are my changes to the ingredient list
-   Instead of mashed banana I used canned pumpkin
-   No orange zest
-   No cloves
-   Used 2 tsp cinnamon
-   1/8 tsp nutmeg.

I took these to work and they were devoured.

and with maple glaze

8  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / quilled dragon on: January 12, 2017 07:32:34 AM
I used to do a lot of quilling but got away from it.  The personal swap I did with mandit1990 inspired me to drag out all my quilling supplies and make this dragon.

He was a bit hard to photograph being so long.  You can see some action pics here.
