Years ago there was an Abandoned Art swap and I'd love to see another one get off the ground!

Here's the discussion and gallery threads.

Who's in?!  Cheesy I'd be willing to organize - maybe a couple of weeks of sign ups in late July/early August, a month for crafting, and then send outs early September? The last swap required 5 small pieces of art to be sent to your partner to be abandoned plus an extra for your partner to keep  Smiley...

HEY!  That is my plan to celebrate the Canada 150th this year - I was going to make 150 items to abandon!  I just altered 30 "lucky pennies" to abandon. 

I could be up for this!

Possibly...I have been wanting to do this forever, but would have no idea what to make!

Just make what you love to make, or always wanted to make!

I did miniature books last time.  Right now, for a personal plan for art abandonment, I did altered coins, and am working on a series of bamboo tile pendents/pieces. 

Check out the art abandonment facebook page to see what different people are abandoning... it's pretty cool and inspiring - painted rocks, photos, jewelry, large ceramic pieces.  I love just checking it out.

Too bad you weren't abandoning art now, on your trip.  Or are you already doing it?

I'm not sure yet what I want to abandon...I've been getting into yarn bombs but that's more like art installation and not something you can really take home with you. The last round I did some fun little figurines and shrines that seemed to get a good response. Prayer flags would be a cool thing to abandon, and I know those are popular around these parts  Smiley Maybe some ATCs too. The sky is really the limit on this - I like to think of what would be easy to transport for the abandoner, and also what would be really cool to find as the finder. And also what I feel in the mood to make  Cheesy Ooh, abbee another idea could be woodburned spoon wands! Those would be cool to find  Cheesy

Ok, I think you guys convinced me I could figure out something and would likely sign up if this gets going. Cheesy
