Okay I am finally getting around to organizing this!! I am excited ARE YOU!!!???

Swap name:  Art Project!!!
Craftster member who is organizing this swap:LiquidScissors
Sign-up date range: 4/25/05 - 5/15/05
Date to send item by: 5/30/05

Limited to a certain number of people? (optional): 9

Non-U.S. participants allowed? yes

All ages allowed? Or 18+? all

Organizer is aware of current list of "suspended traders"
list and will not allow those members to participate: YES

Organizer has been a member for at least 1 month and will
make sure that every participant has been a member for
at least 1 month: YES

Details of swap:
I decided that once all 9 people are selected we will as a group vote on an image we want to use.  The image will be split up into 9 quadrents (Probably each individual square will equal 4 by 4 inches, making the whole image 12 by 12 inches.  So each person will get a peice of 12 by 12 inch paper (You can use a peice of tag board and cut it to size if you cant find those measurements, just make sure you use STURDY paper)

Each person will choose their own medium, but keep it simple enough so that it can be mailed in an envelope.  We want to keep this swap cheap!  Some examples of Medium include: Paint, Crayon, Pencil, Charcoal, pastels, or anything else you can think of or mixtures of any.  If you will be using charcoal or pastel mediums, please make sure to spray seal them before sending them out.

Everyone will use the small scale image to paint/draw/whatever the image onto their 12 by 12 paper to scale.  I would draw the scale onto your 12 by 12 paper first, and match the two.  After you are fineshed with your peice, then cut it into the 9 sections and mail them out!!  Everyone will get a different peice back to form a completely unique and orignial peice of art!!

I know your thinking, how will the sending out go?  because it is kinda confusing.  I know its hard to trust people over the internet, so I completely understand if anyone has a problem with this, and if they do, I will figure out a different way to do the sending.  But my idea is to send your nine squares to me, and then I can send the mixtures back out to all of you.  This would be an inexpensive and easy way to do this.  The only problem is, it is extremely frownd upon in the craftster community.  But if you trust me, then I would totally be willing to send them all out, this means you only have to send one envelope, to one person, and once.  Also no one will have to worry about getting the wrong peice (2 of the same peice, or missing peice) Also i will provide a backup in case someone flakes out.

I think this will be really cool guys!!



If you want to participate, information to send to organizer:

I'd love to do it....so could we just send our 4x4 pieces to you in a regular envelope?
 For some reason, it wont let me pm you, Liquid, so could you pm me, and I'll see if I get that, and can just reply to it? Sorry, I dunno what's happening

Okay guys, I just read that there are new guidelines for swaps.  SO! With that said....

You must have posted 15 times on craftster!  Which means if you haven't done so, please do in the next 24 hours, or I'll have to remove you from the swap (which sucks I know)

Just wanted to clue everyone in on this, I'll pm everyone as well.

One more thing, I found an EXCELLENT website to explain grid drawing, if anyone is not familur with it.

http://www.frontiernet.net/~dcoates/scale.htm

this is how we will produce a puzzle like peice, that can fit together with all our different peices.  Cool huh?

as far as an image is concerned, I was thinking about something simple, like this sewing machine, and that way people can add little things on in the black spaces.  As long as the line mesure up on everyones (yeah it wont be exact, but thats what makes it cool) you can pretty much fill in the blanks however you want!!!

http://www.juicersforless.com/catalog1/images/images_big/cs-8072_big.jpg

just basic and simple, yet has so much potential.

if anyone has any other ideas, please post!!!
