Details of swap:

The idea of this swap is to make one awesome piece of assemblage art for your partner. What is assemblage art you asked? It is any art that uses found objects to create an intriguing and inspiring composition. The found objects you choose to incorporate are completely up to you! The options are endless!

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!!


Also please make sure that your piece is wrapped with care for transit, bubble wrap is our friend!!

Here are some inspiring posts I found on craftster and around the web to get your creative juices flowing:

Those examples are so stunning. The Creative Design Magazine gave a lot of inspiration. I have been wanting to swap, and this, the book swap and poppet. I will do this one because it was the one I was most interested in. I will get my questionnaire in as soon as possible. I have so much whimsy stuff around here.

To all past swap partners....If something I made you fell apart in some way, it would be helpful to me if you PMed me and told me about it.  Sometimes, I try new things, and if they fail, it helps me to know
