DETAILS OF SWAP:

Previous gallery:
https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=415924.0

*** some verbiage was copied from the original swap

This swap is an ANY MEDIA art swap. Anything goes! Embroidery, graphic arts, wood burning, pastels, charcoal, paint, decoupage, crochet, knit, quilted, glass etching, metal etc. ANYTHING goes as long as it can hang on a wall.

The only requirement is that the size be 11x14 or smaller. Or, if its decided between partners, you may do a series of smaller pieces of art but please make sure its agreed that the swap is equal on both sides. In other words, one participant might send an 8x10 and might receive 5 ATCs. This is NOT equal. Please use your best judgment
I think this is one swap where you really need to discuss with your partner what sizes they might want or be ok with!

You can choose 1 or 2 partners.

Extras are not required but if you'd like to send extras, talk to your partner.

Check into the swap thread every week!

QUESTIONNAIRE:
Name of swap
Craftster username
Email address
Your real name
Mailing address including the country (as it would appear on an envelope):
Would you be willing to ship to an address outside your own country?
Confirm that are at least 18 years old(YES/NO)

Do you want 1 or 2 partners?
What theme(s) would you like your partner to consider making for you?
1.
2.
3.
4.
5.

What art mediums do you really admire/would like to receive?
What are your favorite colors?
What mediums do you think you may be using for your art pieces?
Any colors/themes/mediums that you absolutely dislike?
Do you have a size preference?

Any allergens in your home (pets, smoke, pollen)?
Do you have any allergies?
Pinterest link (to give your partner an idea of what you like)

Anything else youd like to tell the organizer or partner NOT listed in the questionnaire?

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 other rules about participating in a swap.

I liked edelC's idea of posting the wall she is trying to fill on the swap theme idea board:
https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=445209.msg5379517#msg5379517

I would love to see other people's wall of art!

and thought I would do the same here.
I collect coffee and tea art for my kitchen - some from craftster and some not


and I hang all my other craftster art in my craft room.  I have lots of white space to fill!

 Darn it. I meant to grab a shot of my wall this morning. All I have is A partial shot and a couple things are missing in it. I will take one this weekend. Working on my questionnaire now!

Thinking about this one -- oh my, I really WANT to. But the timing is kinda rough. Too many other things on my real-life plate. But maybe . . .

I love the 4x6 swaps, so this sounds like fun too. I just sent in my Q. Trying to decide on themes was tricky, but I finally decided on some. I'm not exactly sure where I want to place whatever I receive. I usually do small hoops in the hoopla, or 4x6, but that seems too small for this swap, and bigger things won't fit where I place those. I have another space that has a few mini-quilts, but not much room for other things. But, I couldn't resist, so I will find a space somewhere. Smiley

You could talk to your partner and maybe see about doing a series of smaller pieces.  like some 5"x7" pieces.
