Details of swap:

Make one (large) piece of assemblage art for your partner.
Assemblage is the making of 3D (or 2D!) art that oftens involves using found objects
* Shadowboxes, shrines, sculptures, dolls can all be types of assemblage work!  It's a pretty wide-opened interpretation for the purposes of this swap.

*** Large based on time/effort, not necessarily size:

Craftster guidelines:
By Time
-Large = 3 or more hours
By Size
-Large = A shawl, a shirt, a skirt, a set of jewelry with four to five items, a purse
By Price
-Large = $30 or more

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!! But please keep in mind your partner's absolute dislikes on the questionnaire. And even though we are not listing themes, take the time to look at your partner's profile or pinterest, etc. to see what kinds of things they may like.

Make sure that your art is wrapped with care for for shipping!! It's always disappointing to receive a broken item.

Here are some posts that have samples of assemblage art:

Please Note:
1. PMs should be labeled "Assemblage Art Swap" with the appropriate action - Signup, send, receive.
2. Make an item that you would like to receive. Get to know your partner. Do your best work.
3. I reserve the right to refuse anyone who has a history of poor communication, late sending, or not meeting swap requirements in any other ways.
4. Please post in the thread regularly so we know you're still around and kicking; also please communicate upfront with your partner and organizer if there may be/are any issues with late sending. Communication will be noted in feedback.
