Details of swap:
Based on this swap: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=35171.0

and this swap: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=39591.0

we're doing round 3!!

You find a picture at a thrift store (yard sale, etc.) and send it off to your swap partner. Then they revamp it ala this website http://thewurstgallery.com/vintage_vandals.html and ship it back to you. We'll have 'original' art that no one else in the world has! How cool!

Keep in mind the size of your picture when choosing. You can get whatever size you want, but shipping may be pricey.  Please pm me with the dimensions of your pic, so I can match everyone up accordingly. You can get any medium you want -- fabric, magazine pages, paintings, canvas, glass, whatever. Also, if your picture has glass in it, please remove prior to shipping. You can send the frame, but please remove the glass. This will make it easier, and safer, for everyone.

 Also, please check out the original threads for questions, because alot of stuff was brought up and answered. Thats all! Good luck and have fun! Happy Thrifting!


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

QUESTIONNAIRE TO ANSWER:
Name of swap
Craftster username
Email address
Your real name
Mailing address
Would you be willing to ship to an address outside of the US?
Are religious icons/art okay with you? Even if we wreck it?
Anything that you do not want to work with or find particularly offensive??


IF YOU WANT TO PARTICIPATE, REMEMBER TO SEND YOUR INFO TO ORGANIZER VIA PRIVATE MESSAGE AND NOT TO REPLY WITH IT HERE.


Also remember to read the Swap Info Guide to find out how to ship your item and other details about participating in a swap.

Yay! I am so excited- this was one of the first swaps I saw and was so disappointed to miss it the first time around.  The picture and frame section is my fav at the thrift store

icrispyi- look over the other two pic revamp swap threads. i think there's all kinds of ways of being artistic, that surely dont involve painting or drawing! i wouldn't really consider myself an artist, but i think the one i did turned out fab (if i say so myself Wink )
