I'm scared about using somebody's art without their permission so here's one of mine from Art Dolls 3 swap in 2014...

Details of swap(I totally stole this info from art dolls 3 by Smmart just fyi) :

We will swap 1 doll (Considered a large) with one partner.These are mixed media art dolls so you can use fabric, paper, metal, natural materials, buttons, charms, etc. You will list several themes for your partner to work around but you also understand that not everyone will be knowledgeable about your particular favorites. So you can say "Nature" as one of your themes but "Babylon 5" might be too scary/difficult for someone who doesn't share your love of those characters.

We are calling this an "art doll" swap - what does that mean exactly? Well, it means different things to different folks. I don't want to put my particular definition here but let's agree that the dolls will be 6" to 12" tall, made with fabric, paper and whatever else you use in your art work and will represent one or more of the themes your partner lists. Here is Wikipedia's definition:

"Art dolls are dolls created by artists and intended as expressive and unique art objects rather than children's toys. Art dolls made by professional artists may be considered fine art. Made using a wide variety of styles and media, some are abstract or tribal, while others are incredibly realistic. They range from dolls with pre-manufactured parts to being wholly fabricated by the artist or sculptor. The term "art dolls" usually refers to human-like dolls, but not always. Art dolls can depict animals, mythical creatures, or abstract beings."

The best way to express your desires for making and receiving is through communication. Please chat with your partner so they know what you want. Again, no guarantee that each of us has the same skills or sewing proficiency to make exactly what you think you want. I'll include lots of questions to help partners get to know what each other wants.

The other component for a great swap , in my opinion, is to have fun, try something new and don't overextend yourself. Choose a project that you want to make - not something that is too hard for you to achieve.

Here are the galleries from previous swaps - art dolls and JunkerJane-style dolls:

I'm totally in! Delighted to get to do my first swap here, although not my first craft swap in general. I love making art dolls, and specialize in book/movie chactaers, but I'm up for trying anything that will thrill my partner here. I'll send in my form either tonight or tomorrow morning, as I'm about to run out the door again. Thanks for organizing this, The Raging Sloth!
