Description:

Hi everyone, Let's finish off this series this month by altering puzzle piece #6 and #12. Yes, please send these last two pieces to your one partner and then your puzzle will be complete.

This swap is for a Puzzle Collaboration, where each artist completes or alters one puzzle piece each round, which is just one of the 12 pieces of the larger puzzle. So this swap is a Multi Round (At least 12), and multi partner swap. This swap is for a 12 piece puzzle, to be completed by different artists, one puzzle piece a month, over the next year.

You will sign up each month to participate, and Swap-bot will randomly assign you your partners for the month. You may get a send to or receive from partner more than once, as partners are randomly assigned by the bot.

To start the swap, I will send each participant a blank puzzle with 12 pieces, and on the backside of each puzzle, I will designate a Number. You will then alter the corresponding puzzle piece, for example this month we will alter and send Number 6 and Number 12, to your one partner. With the state of the world right now....I figure, if you want to finish up this series, this may be the quickest way to do so, and it will limit mailings/contact, etc. Each month will be a different puzzle piece. So each month, every person will send and receive the same puzzle piece number until the whole puzzle has been completed. At the end, we will all share in making this a fun collaboration puzzle project that we will each have one to keep, created from many different artists.

To help cover the cost of the puzzles and shipping them to each of you, you agree to send me $1.25 in either unused postage, thru PayPal, or in trade somehow. Some items I would accept as trade...ATC sleeves, not cutesy stamped images, die cuts, handmade envelopes, dinosaur stickers or postcards or anything dinosaur, weird, funny or unusual postcards, and much more...) If you already have one of the 12 piece Inovart puzzles, sold on Amazon, just let me know, and you can use it.

You may create your art on each puzzle piece in any medium you wish, in any theme you wish. You may choose to complete these all at one time, in small batches or small groups, without reading your partners profile, or you may complete each piece each month after you read your partners profile, the choice is yours. You may include embellishments or have 3D elements, but please make sure anything being adhered is glued down well, and that whatever you're adding does not block any of the other pieces from connecting to that puzzle piece...all the puzzle pieces need to fit in the puzzle unobstructed. Please mail your puzzle piece inside a Decorated card/envelope.

Have fun!

Here is the order we have worked on puzzle pieces: #11, 8, 9, 4 , 5, 10, 1, 2, 7, 3,
