A wonderful new swap! Banners and Buntings!

Dear friends,
Amy with RubyMoon Art is hosting a great swap!  Please visit her site for all of the details but here's a snippet from her website.


Here's how it will work. Each participant will make 5 triangles, send them to me, I will mix them up, arrange them all into buntings and then send them back to you. Your pieces will be mixed with the other pieces and we'd all end up with a bunting that includes artwork from around the globe! Looking at the time line I'd like to have these back to you in time for May Day (May 1). Create with spring in mind, just think spring colors, themes, bright, cheerful. I will take sign ups until 3/25 (or until full), mail the completed pieces to me on 4/11 (I want them here by the 15th) I will assemble and return to you by May 1st.

•To sign up, send an email to amypytlik@yahoo.com. Include your name, address, blog/shop address and any info you'd like to include about yourself.

•Make 5 flags, alter or embellish them as you wish, be creative, (please don't just cut out a piece of scrapbook paper or fabric and call it good) add your touch to each one, make it you!

•Anything goes for your theme, any medium... paper, fabric, altered, digital, painting, drawing, collage, mixed media, sewing, crochet, knit...I will email you a pattern to use so they are all approximately the same size.

•You can make 5 of the same or 5 completely different flags, your choice.

•Please sign and put your contact information on the back of each piece! Everyone likes to know where their art came from :)

•Join this flickr group to post pictures of your finished pieces or join just to watch what everyone is doing, even if you're not participating.

•On April 11th mail your pieces to me, include a return address label and return shipping payment, $6 US, $7 Canada & $9 int'l by paypal.

•Post this on your blog to spread the word and invite your friends to join in.
