Description:

This swap is for a flat item (sender's choice), which may be

-2 ATCs

-a handmade postcard (blank)

-a small piece of art, at least 4x6

-an art flipbook

-a blank notecard and matching envelope

-handmade letterset (2 sheets with matching envelope)

If you really want to make something else, or something more three-dimensional (and you're willing to pay extra postage), you may do so AFTER checking with your partner that it is okay with them.

The main requirement is that you use at least one technique or medium that is new to you ("new" meaning you haven't used it more than twice before) - if you've tried lots of things and are struggling, try to think outside the box - block printing, cyanotype, nature printing, embroidered or sewn or dyed paper, etc. There are SO many exciting techniques out there, even a serial dabbler like me keeps finding new ones. The goal of this swap is to encourage us to stretch our creativity and crafting skills!

While this is not a strictly profile-based swap, please try to create something you think your partner would enjoy. This swap is open to those who have completed and been rated for at least 15 type 3 swaps.

Signup date extended to September 23 because I just remembered I will be camping this weekend and won't be able to assign partners until Monday.

This word be so hard for me BC I push myself to use new things every day. I am a mixed media artist and I use all kinds of unconventional things all the time like salt foodcoloring cupcake holders scrubbies bottlecaps bits of paper ribbon and bits and bobs. So I'm not sure I have something I've worked with so few times. I'm going to join anyway and think about this and what to use BC I love the idea
