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 your muse takes you and give yourself freedom to play and create ART!! This will also be a secret swap, so you won't be getting partners until right before sendouts!

-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 " Fall 2018 6x6 canvas swap" with the appropriate action-Signup, Send, Receive

Crafting keeps the madness at bay. Or is it the cause?

I think I will join too - but let me think... I am stuck on a finicky project right now and it is rather all consuming (purely my fault - I decided to make multiple versions for some reason).

yipee! I'll be looking for that canvas before I sign up. I think I know where to get one, I'm just hopeful they have the 6x6 variety.

Belladune......I sent my questionnaire in, but now I can't find a 6x6 canvas.  I don't want to buy a 4 pack on amazon. I bought an 8x8 and messaged the organizer to see if that would fly, but haven't heard back yet.

UPDATE:  went on a field trip to Jerry's Artarama and found something to use! Yay!

Yay! glad you found a canvas, Opalgryphon!
 I've got to head to the town in which I find canvases this week, so as long as I can find one, I'll be sending my q!
