Frida Kahlo has become a hero of mine and I am drawn to the colours and imagery of her work. I took part in fab Frida ornament swap just before Christmas and enjoyed it soooooo much that I think we need more Frida swaps out there.

If you feel the same way then sign up!

Basically, you will have one partner and for them you must create a Frida Kahlo shrine in whichever medium you wish (senders choice). A three-sided triptych is my preferred option but it is up to you. Make it colourful, shimmery and all things Frida, with symbols and imagery from her paintings and/or life.

I'm thinking no bigger than 6" (20 cm) and go all out to make something you hate to part with but knowing that something equally stunning will be coming your way!!

Check out the Crafty Chica on Google for some inspiration and have a look inside 'Making Shadowboxes and Shrines' on Amazon too.

This is an international swap but I figure the postage shouldn't be too high.

May I add, newbies are welcome (we were all new once) but PM me first as you must complete your profile prior to signing up. You must have an impeccable record or a good argument as I will not tolerate flakers! It's just not fair! I reserve the right to knock you off this swap if your history is dodgy. Please PM me if you’re unsure. Here’s to another fab swap! Happy swapping : )

Me too! I have been googling and there are some really inspirational images out there. Have a look on Etsy for shrine boxes. Also 'Go Make Something' has a tutorial on making a shrine. Can't wait to get started! C'mon you watchers, sign up ! Kate x

Watching for now. I want to try this out at home first since I am new to the whole "shrine" thing :)

I have been trying out some great printing and sewing techniques for this swap and cant wait to start assembling the components together. Come on you watchers.....sign up for the chance to experiment and create comething fantastic. I will run a flickr group for the finished shrines so we can all see each other's creations. Kate x

I love it! It's been a while since I've had time for much else than work, but I'm committed. My last swap proved a disappointment , thus far I have found that Frida swappers seem to be like minded on delivery and love of presentation. Thanks for creating such a cool swap! Looking forward to it!
