    Default The Winged Heart Swap - Due July 30th

    Due date: July 30th
    Sign up/withdrawal by: None, just communicate please.
    Number of pieces: 3/3
    Number of players: unlimited...get in here!

    Join us as we create oversized, winged hearts!

    - Open theme, HD/HP or mixed-media: We are looking for substantial pieces here (not thin or flimsy.) Art that took time and care to create. Art must contain a heart and wings, and measure over 6-inches in at least one direction. Bulky, embellished and 3-D art are encouraged (as long as everything is firmly attached.) Dangles or hangers are just fine.

    - Send in bubble envelope (which I will use to send your returns.) Include a large mailing label. Please sign your art and wrap each piece individually. The swap is holding firm at 3/3, so that each artist can put their best effort into each piece. I'm hosting this swap on AFA as well, so feel free to join in there if you'd like more hearts!

    - Postage: US participants please send $4 in cash or postage (a little more if your art is heavy.) International participants: PayPal equivalent of what it cost to send art (message me for details.)

    A hostess gift is not required, but I sure do dig them. Extra postage is always appreciated. PM for my address when ready to mail to nannerland (in Costa Mesa.) Please show and tell your art in the thread (we love sneak peeks!) And be sure to leave iTrader and “you rocks.”

    Examples that would make any heart flutter:
    nanner’s ceramic and up-cycled bag heart
    LCArtist’s 3-D Angel Feathered Heart
    Waterblossom’s Sun and Moon - Blue Bandana Heart

    Here's one from me: a ceramic center with hammered wire wings. I added some acrylic details and then some patina. I have been on a "patina" kick lately.

    Put together my first winged heart. I used some old damaged reading glasses I found on the street for the wings.The photo angle causes and asymmetrical look. I was trying to avoid shadows.
