Who loves a good heart? We do -- especially if they are made from mixed media!

- If outside the US, understands that a mailing receipt copy is required for this swap: YES

Details of swap:
Let's show some love for mixed media! In this swap, we'll each be creating ONE mixed media heart that is no larger than 6" or so in size. (You can cheat a little, just check with your partner.) Just big enough to look amazing, but small enough to create in a short turn around -- and hopefully keep postage costs at a minimum! This swap has three weeks for crafting so participants can receive their heart in time for Valentine's Day.

Again, this swap is for ONE heart -- but if you and your partner decide on extras, that is fine!

What can I use to create my heart?
You can use paper, fabric, wood, wool, canvas, paper clay, paper mache, glass... whatever inspires you!

What should my heart look like?
Follow your heart! Maybe yours is an altered canvas, or a mini shrine. It might be a tiny quilt, a gorgeous stuffie or a lovely needle felted creation. Or maybe you make a metal or glass piece to wow your partner. The possibilities are endless!

If you want to participate, information to send to organizer:

Do you mean as a base? You can use anything you want as a base, as long as you are altering it and adding your mixed media touch to it! Cheesy
