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

I have a question about paint mediums.  It's possible to use watercolor ground applied to the canvases or hardboards which would then accept watercolor paint. Is that acceptable?  You can see a short video here on how that would work:

You can use any medium that you want! Pretty much as long as it adheres to the size requirements- you can let your creativity fly! I was actually thinking of trying to incorporate fiber arts into this somehow...
