Hey, this swap is for 2 painted papers to one partner. You can use other mediums besides paint, but it is not required. I plan to use stamping, marks with pencils, stencils, water color paints, art crayons, etc for my papers. If you want to get an idea of what to do....youtube master boards. These papers do not have to be so elaborate or have so many layers as some of these videos, but just have fun and add several layers. Please make the papers at least printer paper size...whatever that is for your country. They can be folded to mail. It is NOT a requirement, but you can decorate the mailing envelope in the same way for mail art;) These papers, including the envelope can be used to make other projects.

This is my first time ever creating something like this and I am feeling like my work is mediocre. 🤦🏻‍♀️ Any suggestions or specific examples of the work they've done before? I'm going to keep adding paint to mine in the meantime. Lol

@misskayeldaho I would search "painted papers" on youtube. There are many ways to do it.....no one right way. They are not suppose to be finished pieces of art;) but to be cut/torn for other projects. Just fill up the white space, and keep adding as many layers as you like. Let it dry in between layers of paint or it could look muddy....but that could be desired as well;) Let loose and have fun with it, no one should be rated down for making something the receiver may think is "ugly". I've got some examples on my Instagram as well, the link is on my profile. Hope that helps.

I love using this layered stencil technique from Julie Fei-Fan Balzer...
