Description: For this project, you will create two unique 4" x 6" canvases using your choice of mixed media techniques to create an abstract design. These will be original compositions and NOT image collages. You can use the substrate of your choice and thickness but the size should be approximately 4x6 inches.
I've pinned some samples for inspiration on my Pinterest board here.
Mailing Guidelines: You will send one completed canvas to each of your two assigned partners. Names will be randomized and mailing list announced on August 30th. You may have to mail internationally so keep the postage costs in mind when designing your canvas - if it's really thick or heavily embellished, it will cost more to mail.
Skill Level: 2) BUDDING - Participants will be open to trying new ideas and materials, without necessarily being competent yet with their applications. Swap Hosts are encouraged to add the requirement of a technique or process such as creating texture, using crackle paint, doing photo transfers, painting with watercolor, etc.
