Our hands are our most important creative tools...and I really enjoy using them as a motif in artwork. For this swap, we will be creating colorful, cutout hand-shaped artworks for our partners.

Trace your own hands or use a template to cut 2 hands from a sheet of card stock or old file folder - you can also use bristol or watercolor paper, depending on what mediums you're going to decorate your hands with.

Fully decorate one side of each hand using any mediums you wish - collage, paint, mixed media, drawing - and express your creative flair COLORFULLY. The reverse sides should be minimally decorated (a little color wash or patterned paper, for example) and signed with your name.

Do not mount your hands on any sort of background. They are to remain cut out and sent in envelopes, one to each partner.

There are templates online if you rather not use your own hand. Palmistry charts and coloring sheets make good templates. Your hands can have the fingers spread out or close together; include a little bit of wrist or just stop at the edge of the palm. Please make your hands adult life sized - that's roughly 4" x 6".
