I'm Hosting A New Trade :):)

 I have decided to host another Art Swap!!! I love trading art with other artists:) The last time I did a trade it was with fabric...Quilties. This time I am doing a mixed media (paper) trade.

You make 4) 5x7 art pieces out of sturdy paper. I used 140lbs watercolor paper. Just use paper that is sturdy enough for all the mixed media stuff you put on it. 
 Like...paint, markers, collage, tissue, ribbons, laces, vintage pages, glitter, modeling paste, watercolor...well you get my meaning....anything and everything.

There will be no theme....just what ever you feel like making.

 You can make them all alike or make each one very different. Above I started mine...they are a like so far...but I haven't finished them yet...so they could become different when I am done:):)

The mail out date will be the 15th of every month.
First trade is July 15th.

To join email me your home address and I will send you a info/welcome letter with more details.

I started this trade on Instagram......so, if you want to follow along there....look up #haswap
This trade is going to be awesome...we have quite a few players..from all over the world.

You can pop in and out of this trade as life gets in the way.
Just let me know you are sending your art work...and mail them on time..and they are in the trade:):)

I love doing trades...because sometimes we can't all afford other peoples art work...this is a way to get others art without spending to much money...just shipping.

Also...it is a great way to encourage others to make art. 

So, I hope you will join me:):)
Much love- Sandie
