    Mandala Chunky Page Swap! Date Due: March 30, 2016

    Due Date: March 30, 2016
    Sign up/Withdrawal Date: March 23, 2016
    What to Make: 4X4" Mandala Chunky Pages
    Number of Pages: 2:2, 3:3 or 4:4
    Players: Unlimited

    Welcome to the Mandala Chunky Pages Swap!

    This swap is for chunky pages with mandala designs.
    The mandala designs can be hand-drawn, painted, zentangled, collage, fabric or any not-too-bulky media that you choose.

    What is a Chunky? It is a 4 X 4 artwork created on a sturdy base. The front can be any medium including collage, hand-drawn, fabric, painted, etc. Some sort of "chunk" can be added: gems, dangling yarn, charms, beads, found objects or other. The back is made pretty or decorated lightly because chunkies are often displayed in books. It's always a good idea to leave the left hand side free for binding.

    What is a Mandala? A mandala is a graphic and often symbolic pattern usually in the form of a circle bearing repeated images. It is also defined as any geometric design symbolic of the universe (often used in Hinduism and Buddhism as an aid to meditation).
    Put the mandala together with a chunky and you had a mandala chunky page!
    For this swap, you can make 2, 3 or 4 mandala chunky pages. You will get back the same number you send in.

    Mailing Information ~
    Please put your username AND real name on back of each page
    Please send your pages in a bubble mailer, which I will be reuse for your returns.
    Please let me know how many you are sending to swap ~ 2:2, 3:3, or 4:4
    Please enclose a large return address label.

    US participants: Please include $2.00 in US cash or postage stamps.
    International players: If you have US stamps or cash, please include what you can. Otherwise, I will cover postage.

    Welcome, Crafty3790 and Donnacr!

    Yes, I had a couple folks encourage me to offer the postage stamp mandala swap again...and I thought I'd broaden it to include mandalas in other media as well.

    Lurking, a lovely theme, but I haven't had time for much art lately.

    Oh, I am so doing this! Thank you, mrubyjean for the link to Lynne Medsker! It was like I had been sent a sign - she's from my home state of Indiana and some of her work is in my home city of Greenwood! Too cool and what inspirational work!
