Would anyone be interested in a swap where you start a hoopla and then send it to your partner to finish? For example, you make the branches of a tree and let your partner finish it with button leaves or a bird nest or whatever they like.

This would have the added benefit that you wouldn't have to send the frame through the mail, which is what always seems to make the package expensive.

On the other hand,  the person starting the hoop might do too much or not enough of the design, so there could be lopsided efforts.

What do you think?

This actually sounds really fun, but I don't have any input on it.
ETA: Would the hoop returned to the original partner or would it be for keeps? I think it would be fun to make the 1/2, send it, and get it back with their interpretation.

I have not participated in any of the hoopla swaps yet, but this idea sounds really appealing!

    I hadn't even thought of sending the hoops back after the 2nd half, but that sounds like even more fun. Good idea!

    In poetry and drawing this creative technique is called "Exquisite Corpse." http://www.exquisitecorpse.com/definition/About.html

    I think it could be a fascinating project!  Smiley

    I love exquisite corpse projects! I did one once in a fiber class in groups of three. It was kind of crazy, but a blast!

    * I like the idea of it being returned to the original artist. One thing with exercises of this nature is it is meant to get you out of your comfort zone. Often times people get so attached to their work that they aren't willing to change it or let it go. You've got to be able to let it go and accept potential change to do some serious growing. It could be a really great experience to open your piece and it look completely different than you had envisioned in your mind.
    On my first day in a figure sculpture class we spent the entire 3 1/2 hour lab sculpting a copy of a plaster head.
    I was really proud of my first ever head sculpt. It wasn't until the end of class however that the teacher informed us that we would not be keeping these projects and they were to be tossed back into the clay bucket. I was devastated! But, I grew a little bit that day (and she wasn't being an a$$, she was an awesome teacher.) Grin

    Food for thought... and... it's late, so I'm rambling.  Smiley
