Details of swap:
Feeling the need to flex your more art, less craft muscles?  Want some amazing art to inspire you?  Then this is the swap for you!  The only guideline to the swap were that you have to use a 6x6 square surface with deep edges (1-2 inches). Other than that you were free to use any medium you wish- acrylics, pastels, mixed media, assemblage etc. Please make sure the edges are wrapped as you will be required to finish the edges as well for a ready to hang piece.  No extras please!  

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!!

-ONE 6x6 inch (edges can be 1-2) surface (stretched canvas, hardboard etc), NO EXTRAS please! Edges must be finished in whatever medium you are using.
-Any medium that can be used/applied to a surface is eligible-acrylic paints, oil paints, charcoal, oil sticks, pastels, wax pastels, mixed media, collage
-Swappers must send with Delivery Confirmation within the USA, international swappers must keep their receipt from the Post Office (a printed receipt from the cash register that clearly shows the date you sent)
-Please make sure that your piece is wrapped with care for transit, bubble wrap is our friend!!
- All swappers are required to post in the thread after sending in your signup.
-Pms should be labeled "6x6 canvas swap" with the appropriate action-Signup, Send, Receive

24  More Art,Less Craft Swap? in New Swap Theme Ideas by LeapFeetFirst on: March 14, 2018 08:32:53 AM


Many many moons ago, there was a More Art,Less Craft swap where we traded art with each other. The only guideline to the swap were that you had to use a 6x6 canvas. Other than that you were free to use any medium you wished, acrylics, pastels, mixed media, assemblage etc.

Here is a link to the gallery from that swap in 2012! More Art, Less Craft Swap 2012

Would there be any interest in doing another swap like that? I think I need more artwork in my life  Grin

I received some amazing art from Annchen!!!! I love love love this watercolor so much. It combines my love of prairie flowers with my love of science. I need to find the perfect frame for it!



And she sent me a feminist book plate stamp! I just packed up all of my stamp pads so I can't try it out yet, but I can't wait to use it.

Details of swap:
The 4x6 Art swap runs like this:  You make ONE piece of art, in your style,  in any medium, how you want.  The only parameters are that you keep it relatively flat, and 4 inches by 6 inches big.   You will have no idea who your partner is, until "Address Time", which will be at the end of the crafting period.  And then you will only know their Address and proper name.  The organizer will do their best to match up partners but do remember that this is essentially a "surprise" swap and no information other than a real name and address will be sent out to you.

Swap Rules:
~ Please post in the thread after signing up so we know you are still crafting and thinking about this swap.  Updates and reminders will only be posted in the thread so keep an eye out for the Organizer note headline.

~ You are required to check in to your group leader via pm (private message) between the dates of May 22-29 ONLY.  Anyone who has not checked by 6:00PM (CST) on May 29th will be dropped from the swap and will not receive an address to send to.
 
~ DC# confirmation is required for all senders in the USA.  Add some packing to a bubble envelope to meet the 3/4" thick requirement when shipping.  If you are sending art on a piece of paper, please ship with a piece of heavy cardboard so your masterpiece arrives intact!

~ No extra's please!  Since the only communication will be through this thread, and there will be no discussion among partners, we don't want anyone feeling upset they didn't send an extra. This includes sending more than one art piece. Only send ONE art piece to your partner.
