Swap description: A HandCrafted Fairy Tale
This is the first of what will be an ongoing (bi-monthly) series of swaps, focusing on a different fairy tale each time. For January, your challenge is to re-create the story (or a scene from) Hansel & Gretel, in handcrafted form.
What is your medium? Whether you are a writer, embroiderer, stuffie-maker, ATC artist, zinester or have a different method of working entirely, this swap welcomes interpretations in any creative form! You can work with the original story or create your own revisionist version. You can illustrate a scene or scenes. You can think laterally and get inside the mind of one of the characters. You can provide a prop or accessory that is integral to the storyline. The main criteria is to express the story creatively!
As we will be working with different media, it is difficult to set guidelines of size/quantity, but as a rough guide, minimum requirements would be one of the following:
However, you are not limited to sending an item of the type listed above. If working with a different type of craft or item, please use common sense to convert the approx. sizes/quantities above to your own media. If unsure, post to the swap comments or send me a PM & we can jointly decide what would be reasonable. You may, of course, send more or larger items than suggested. The list is for minimum size only. :)
I have started a discussion thread in the group forum - please feel free to stop by & share your ideas, or perhaps be inspired by the other posts there. :)
The obvious bit
