Every year around this time, we have a special swap project to celebrate the anniversary of our Paper Traders group. We encourage all group members to join in to make and trade a commemorative piece in honor of the event.
This year, we were inspired by The Altered Brush Project a la Donna Downey Studios who took inspiration from a single altered brush by Mindy Lacefield and ran with it, creating quite a sensation...

As you can see, the ideas for these brushes are just endless! We hope you are feeling inspired to try this fun project with us. We will be using a 4" paint brush like the ones shown in the links provided about. You may decorate in any style you want - there is no particular theme but, in honor of our 7th anniversary, if Lucky Number 7 inspires you in some way then just go with it!
Please sign up in the Swaps Database by November 1st.
Partners will be announced on November 3rd and you will have an additional week to put the final touch on your brush to get it mailed out by November 12th.
Don't forget to share a photo of your brush in the project album.
Happy Anniversary, everyone!
