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:

Laaaaaadies!

I just had a chance to re-review gg's, and check out cmarion's pins, and then Q comments and I'm really happy and thrilled! Although small, we are mighty and I am excited over the challenges and similarities!

I am just doodling around with potential ideas!

I know what I am making you cmarion!  I saw something on your pinterest that I have been wanting to make so it was an easy decision.  I may have to buy 1 thing and probably won't be able to get started until later in the week.
JoyfulClover I am still stalking you.

Hey ladies!

I have a smidge idea for cmarion. Went to the store, didn't find what the core item, but walked out with a standing sewing table! Cheers!  Will have to hit a circuit this weekend to see if I can find that sucker!

GG!  I have 2 ideas, but one of them feels more right. I tend to overthink a lot so we'll see. I have the main piece and as I'm typing I'm feeling a strong maybe here!  Ohhh yeah!
