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'm in!  Looking at the gallery was like a time capsule. I didn't even remember doing this swap until I looked at the gallery. I would love another challenge to create another little mini artwork.

I have my art piece from alteredmommy in my bathroom, so I see it everyday. That's what prompted me to think- "We should do that swap again!!" Plus I need to get my creative flow back again. I haven't really done any crafting for months.

I am glad to see people are interested! I was thinking of starting the swap soon- maybe the end of March, beginning of April with a 4-6 week crafting window and send outs the end of April/beginning of May. Would that time frame work for y'all?

That was a fun swap, I forgot I made those pieces!  My lovely piece from LeapFeetFirst lives in my kitchen with another lovely piece of hers (from the STS).  Now to figure out if I can squeeze making art in and sending early before I leave on my trip to Amsterdam at the end of April.....mostly its the sending early part haha

This would be a bit (or a lot) out of my comfort zone, but I'm interested!

Like the timeframe, too. Smiley
