Details of swap: This swap is for everyone to explore different medias and express themselves through art. Have you been dieing to try your hand at painting? Are your pencils or markers getting a little dusty? Is your fabric scraps flooding your craft area? Do you have a ton of goodies to make a one of a kind collage?  How do you feel about having a piece of your art hanging in your craftster buddies home? Paint, water color,  draw, or break out of the norm with fabric, beads, collage, or embroidery to make someone a wonderful piece of wall art! The possibilities are endless as long as your piece of art can hang on a wall!

This swap is a 3 point swap! If you and your partner agree more pieces can be exchanged, but 3 points are the requirement! If possible I will pair those that want more with each other. We will have one month to complete the art for our partner and then we will send by May 18th. This swap should not be to stressful and tons of fun! Remember... You are your worst critic. No matter how you feel about your piece of art craftster member will love anything you put your heart and sole into. Please don't let this stop you from joining this swap!  Wink

I wonder how most people would feel about sharing pictures of themselves or loved ones if we would want to do more of a portrait type art?

We have 2 signed up already! Yay!
Someone mentioned doing a portrait...
Just an idea for that.
If someone wanted a portrait of their kids or themselves you could always share photos on flickr or email photos to your partner.
I would love to see someone do a portrait!
