We will create a mixed media art piece inspired by Angela Holt Designs, or Finnabair and this is the perfect group for it. I am also hosting another swap, just like this one, in the Sisters of Holy Crap group....if you want to make two. These can be time intensive, and product/found object intensive which can add weight, so for this swap, let's make it US only. If someone else would like to host an International version, feel free.

Here are some examples and a tutorial.

and/or google search for Finnabair Mixed Media, and then click on images to see many spectacular pieces. Here are a few of my favorites.

For this swap, let's make at least a 5 x 7 size mixed media art piece, that you create in this style, using all the glorious crap you have been saving up for a cool project. You may go larger if you wish, but not smaller. Please use a sturdy background. Have a way to display it...meaning put a hanger on it, or add feet so it stands up, just someway to display it or have it sit on a shelf by itself. Please make sure you securely adhere any added items, and if needed, wrap your art work during shipping for protection. Please rate your partner, and to help make rating easier please include your swap id and swap name. This is sender's choice for colors and theme, but must be created using this style.

I'm giving a longtime to create this piece, so you have time to collect some more objects before you start.

Have fun.

This swap sounds AMAZING. Unfortunately, I cannot participate at this time. I hope you host this swap again in the future.
