Spring Fever Art Swap


This is it!! I'm ready to host my first art swap! These are the details! The theme is Spring Fever! Participants will swap an altered altoid tin decorated to reflect the wanderlust for nature's next season!!! Each tin must include a favorite quote or some other "wordplay." Tins are to be received by April 1st. That gives lots of time for your muse to dance! To be a part of this swap, leave a comment on this entry. Be sure to leave your email address so that I can contact you with my snail mail address and any other necessary info!!! If you have a blog, please spread the word! COME ONE, COME ALL! Let's play!

Well Summer Gypsy, I have never altered a tin before in my life, but I think there is no time like the present to give this a try. I'm up for the challenge so count me in. I've also mentioned it on my blog and will contact a few of my altered friends to see if they will play. It sounds like fun!! And believe me, I could us some spring right about now...even if i have to "make it" myself!! LOL!

I would love to join your swap! I am new to the altered tin, have only done one, but love the inspiration of your spring fun!

I read about you on Kathy's blog, but if I didn't see it on her's I would have seen it on Sherry's. I'm lucky to know them both.

Will do a mention on my blog as well! Can I use your post picture as a "banner"?

Rhondamum said...

Me again... I added a picture for a banner with your info on my blog. Feel free to check it out if you like.

Rhondamum said...

Thanks for visiting my blog. I'm happy to hear that you like the picture I posted and you are welcome to it. Do you want me to add your info to the picture itself and send it to you? Just let me know.

I am really excited about your swap! Thanks for having me!
