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!!
